And now he is seen as the dutiful husband Abhinav who can do anything for his wife.Here is Mrunal in a candid interview with TellyBuzz where he talks of his journey..Tell us about your story of getting into acting?
Acting was something totally undecided for me. It happened accidentally. I was in the textile business with my dad, and it was then that they wanted me to take part in Gladrags 2007. I cleared all rounds and came into the top 21. My dad said leave this textile stuff, you are good for acting so do that and that is how I got into acting. How is it working for Imagine for so long?
I have worked in Mahaabhaarat, Bandini and Looteri Dulhan

It was an amazing experience. I feel lucky to work with one of the biggest production houses.Why did you choose Looteri Dulhan over completing the hat trick with Ekta Kapoor who offered you a show on Colors?
As the role was different, I opted for Looteri Dulhan
