    Wow, it's great that the show is finally entering the Mahabharat phase. Now the fact that there is no Rukmini will not bother viewers, as she has no role in the Mahabharat.

    I loved Gufi Paintal as Shakuni Mama, it's really great that he's returning!

    Thumbs Down He was great then, but don't like the idea of him playing the same role a second time. A different actor from one of those serials might have been better.

    I remember as a kid my grandma use to tell us a story that 'God' had granted a boon to Bhim and Bhim had asked that no matter how much he ate, Sakuni mama should go to toilet on his behalf..LOL!!
