Devon Ke Dev. Mahadev, a mythological wonder that
has enthralled the nation with its strong cast and a stronger narration, is set
to create another benchmark on Indian Television.
After approaching a host of veteran actors like Danny Denzongpa, Mithun Chakraborty and Jackie Shroff, Life OK has confirmed Rahul Dev for the role of Demon Arunasur in the popular series. This also marks the actor's entry on Television.
Rahul, who is well known for essaying negative roles in various movies, will be seen as the negative lead Arunasur who will battle against Lord Shiva played by India's favorite on-screen God Mohit Raina.
Rahul said, "I'm very excited to debut on Indian Television with the most popular series Devon ke Dev... Mahadev. My character, Arunasur, will be nothing like what's currently seen on Television. He will have a distinctive personality and will showcase various shades of grey. I'm quite excited to play this character as it has tremendous potential and will definitely leave a mark behind."
As per the story, Arunasur is an extremely powerful being who is constantly trying to bring his mother back to life. He respects the elements that govern the universe, but not the Gods that represent them. In a bid to overpower Bhooteshwar Mahadev, he captures the 5 Devtas - Soorya, Chandra, Agni, Varun and Pawan Dev, and thus begins his war against Mahadev.
Rahul Dev will be seen portraying the role of Demon Arunasur starting December.
