One of the biggest Primetime historical series, Prithvi Raj Chauhan
has always kept its viewers hooked to the Television sets. After
getting a huge success, the series has now crossed another milestone
with Prithvi Raj Chauhan getting a more youthful look. He will be seen
winning crucial battles, accepting major challenges and leading himself
to become the leader. Anas Rashid
who has already executed his acting skills in big soaps like Kahiin Toh
Hoga, has now accepted this challenge of playing this very role of a
historical character as Yuva Prithvi Raj Chauhan. Anas Rashid
feels great and very responsible to make an entry into this historical series with high TRP. “It
is a huge responsibility on my shoulders to maintain the image of
Prithvi Raj Chauhan. We have read in the history books about him, and
will have an image of his in our mind. To fulfill that image is very
difficult. I am working very hard towards it. And as a team, we are
trying to do everything possible so that viewers get to know the Indian
history and understand this leader. I feel more responsible because I
need to put myself in the place of the great king”.
So, how were you approached for this role? “The
auditions had been taking place for the past 12 months and the team
could not find anyone suitable for this role. They needed someone who
can replace Rajat and someone who also looks similar to him. My
secretary came to know about it, and asked me to give an audition. I
was tested for various aspects like horse riding, how comfortable I am
with using the weapons etc. Later, I was selected for the role and I am
very happy to have got it”.
As this role is of a historical character, Anas also had to prepare himself for this. “I
Keeping the image intact of a king is a tough job. The directors and
writers have helped me a lot. They explain and guide me through every
sequence. I understand the emotions better from my writers because one
cannot get that by reading a book. Viewers should feel that essence,
which is more important”,
says the youngster.
About learning to ride a horse he says, “I
have never done horse riding before. Yes, I have sat on a horse once or
twice but never knew how to ride. It just took me two days to learn.
There was a coach appointed who taught me this and then I learnt it
myself by practice”.
How about usage of weapons? “There are fight masters who help me with that. I learn and by practice, it becomes perfect”.
Adds Anas, “Rajat
has created an image among the viewers and he has won many hearts. I
need to maintain the same image for which I am trying my best”.
And his message to his fans - “Please
keep watching the show. There is so much of hard work that we put to
make the series. We are trying to keep forward the history to the
viewers so they can be aware of the Indian history. It is different
from the usual Saas-Bahu soaps. Also do not compare the young Prithvi
to the Yuva Prithvi Raj Chauhan. Both are different roles, and I hope
all my fans will keep watching the show without fail”.
