Rohit Sagar who will soon be seen in Ek Nanad ki Khushiyon ki Chhabi Meri Bhabhi will now also be seen in Nikhil Sinha's Devon ke Dev… Mahadev. His role is supposed to be a cameo. It will be part of the Ramayan track where he plays Lord Hanuman's father.
Rohit who has yet to start shooting for the show confirms, "Yes, I will be coming in as Lord Hanuman's father, Kesari. Today is the costume trial for the same after which I start shooting."
Playing his wife Anjana, Hanuman's mother will be actress Silkina Kaur who has done shows like Yahaan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli earlier.
This is his first mythological show and Rohit agreed to do it since he feels the show is something different, "Devon ke Dev… Mahadev is a great show and I said ok to it because one – there is a growing trend of mythologicals happening and second – Nikhil Sinha's conviction of presenting the show is so different. All the credit for the show's success goes to him. The way the show is presented is something different. Even the promos that are shot actually have a meaning to it. It is a good value show and I am happy to be a part of it even if it is a cameo."
Earlier Rohit's better half, Shalini KapoorSagar who is currently seen in Qubool Hai, too is a part of Devon ke Dev… Mahadev as Rani Prasuti. Shalini has earlier too done mythologicals and played Maa Durga in the show Jai Maa Durga. So did she give any tips to him on working in mythologicals? "No, not exactly. Shalini has more work experience than me when it comes to doing TV and even mythologicals, but we don't give each other tips. We discuss the entertainment industry as well as acting in general."
Rohit's role in Meri Bhabhi too will get on track soon, "I feel the role is shaping up well as the character has started getting more importance now and I am happy about it" concludes Rohit.
