Dhritarasthra the most powerful man in Star Plus' Mahabharat is being essayed by Thakur Anoop Singh who is also a pilot by profession. In tonight's episode viewers will witness his grand and never seen entry.

TellyBuzz got in touch with Thakur Anoop Singh to know more about his role in the epic show Mahabharat.

When asked Anoop about his journey in the industry he said, "Well to start with, I am a pilot by profession and have a license for the same. However, I never really pursued it as a career because at the same time recession hit the entire globe. I didn't want to waste my time and since I  love acting I decided to pursue my career in acting. I had to look after my family so I thought I might as well pursue my career in acting."

"At that point I started with modelling and thankfully Siddharth Tewary noticed me and he offered me the role of Dhritarasthra. It was a pleasure to play the role of Dhritarasthra who is known to be more powerful than Bhishma pithama. So for me it was a very challenging act. I had actually worked hard on my physique and my skills to essay the role of Dhritarasthra," he added.

We asked him about his grooming sessions for Mahabharata, and Anoop says, "I had actually grown my hair, groomed myself but at that time the set wasn't ready and I didn't wanted to shed my weight as the role of Dhritarasthra demanded me to be a little plum. So in the meanwhile to get into the skin of the character I decided to take up mythological shows that came my way. I did couple of shows like I shot for the promo of Hanuman in Ramayan but couldn't do the role. This way I got a hang of mythological shows and could improvise on my diction."

Anoop has been practicing a lot to get well versed with his character in the show and he said, "I did loads of practice as I used to blind fold myself for the role and roam around so that I could walk and get the act right. I also met Giriraj Shankar who played Dhritarasthra in the earlier Mahabharat and he gave me an amazing insight on the character of Dhritarasthra."

We asked him as how different is the new Mahabharat from the old one, for which Anoop opined, "The new age modern Mahabharat is different from the early ones as in this Dhritarasthra is shown as a warrior. Tonight is the grand entry of Dhritarasthra wherein he will fight with the elephants. All my stunts are performed by myself and I am thankful to each and every one associated with Mahabharat."

Talking about his future plans Anoop says, "I would like to pursue my acting career and if fate takes me back to aviation industry I might take up a job in the aviation profession but nothing has been planned right now."

I am amazed at his marvellous acting, very refreshing and authentic. His each and every even slight movement and each movement is full of royal warrior and makes the meaning of the world Kshatriy. Bhishma of new Mahabharat also can challenge Mukesh Khanna of Mahabharat of Chopra. How inspiring against garbage called imitative bollywood.
