Actor Puneet Issar says he prefers to do television in breaks, and likes to take up roles which challenge him.
The actor will soon be seen in &TV’s mythological drama “Paramavatar Shri Krishna”. The show tells tales about Lord Krishna, and Puneet will essay the role of Jarasandha.
“I usually do television in breaks and prefer to take a role that would excite or challenge me. Every character that I have done till now has really been an exciting one,” Puneet said in a statement to IANS.
“It has been a while since I have done a mythological show and I am really excited to play the role of Jarasandha. It’s going to be a fascinating and challenging role,” he added.
Puneet is popular for playing role of Duryodhana in TV show “Mahabharat” and for his stint in a season of reality show “Bigg Boss”.
On taking up a mythology show, he said: “I believe the show is doing absolutely well. It caters to the kids and I think they really enjoy the show because of the character and splendid graphics.
“Mythology hamari sanskriti hai (Mythology is all about culture). And people want to see these traditional characters and know to which era they belong. It may be mythology to the western world, but to us it’s our culture and that’s why Indians love it.”
