Rohit Bharadwaj who was last seen in Navya is all set to enter Siddharth Kumar Tiwary's popular ongoing mytho series Mahabharat on Star Plus tonight. Rohit, who was last seen playing interesting characters in popular shows like Navya, Baat Hamari Pakki Hai, Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha, etc. is all set to rock the small screen again as Yudhishthir in Mahabharat.

TellyBuzz spoke to the actor about his early life, his experience being a part of Mahabharat, future plans and much more.

Let's see what Rohit has to say...

Talking about his early life, Rohit told us, "I was a very shy guy during my college days. I planned to go to abroad for higher studies in my last year of graduation. Unfortunately I got a back in the final semester and I had to wait for three month to re-appear in my exams and complete my graduation. I had three months of break and I needed a change. On a friend's advice, I joined theater and started liking acting. Those three months turned into three years and then I never looked back. May be acting was bound to happen in my destiny and I am glad that it came through."

Rohit who is playing Yudhishthir in Mahabharat, was called to audition for the role of Krishna initially. Talking on the same, he told us, "I was working in Navya for Swastik Productions and I was asked to give the audition for the role of Krishna. I auditioned but then they wanted me to be Yudhishthir; I believed in producer Siddharth Kumar Tiwary and agreed and I felt that it was a good decision. The genre of mythology is great and I am enjoying it. It feels so majestic to play the role of a king. It feels great with the costume of a king, the visuals, the role and everything. It feels great to be a part of such a huge project. It's an epic and I am proud of my character. He is fighting between Dharma and Adharma. He is the only one who wins the battle and attains Moksha."

So, what kind of preparations you have done for this role? Rohit says, "I learn't the technique of fencing, horse riding, and attended director's workshop for the character that I am playing. I researched a lot about Yudhishthir, learnt the mannerisms of a king and observed the character. I am very much enjoying it. I haven't actually mastered horse riding yet. I have experienced funny incidents like falling off the horse and my crew had once recorded my footage of falling off the horse."

Rohit wishes to like Shah Rukh Khan and dreams of becoming a superstar like him, he says, "I want to be like Shah Rukh Khan in the next five years as he is a self made man and would also want to acquire the stature like him. I want to be a superstar and want to have all the good things in life like a luxurious home, a reputed name and fame, an awesome car. Shahrukh's aura is so great. He is fantastic and a great inspiration. We have our hometown Delhi in common and also the profession." 

Way to go Rohit!
