After trying his luck in Bollywood, model-turned-actor Rajneesh Duggal is set to get a taste of the small screen. He will make his TV debut by playing Lord Ram in new mythology-based show "Ram Leela", and he is excited.
"It feels absolutely great to be part of such a grand show. I have grown up listening to the tales of Ramayana and Mahabharata and being a worshipper myself, I'm extremely excited to portray the divine Lord Ram in front of TV audiences," Rajneesh said in a statement.
"I have always believed in doing something different with every project of mine, and portraying the character of Lord Ram is definitely challenging. Since it's a musical, there is so much to explore - be it dancing or doing physical stunts, it's a great learning for me," he said.
"Ram Leela", which is expected to have a mix of dance, drama, music and modern technology, will go on air on Life OK. To be telecast Oct 21-Nov 18, it is being marketed as a Dussehra to Diwali special show.
It will have Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn as the narrator.
