Yash and Mamta Patnaik’s latest show Rakshabandhan – Rasal Apne Bhai Ki Dhal is getting lots of love from the audience. The show is all about brother and sister duo Shiv and Rasaal. The viewers love the kid version of the characters. And so, the adult Shiv and Rasaal should be deserving too. Doing absolute justice to the character Shiv, actor Nishant Singh Malkhani will be playing the grown-up son.
Time leaps are a norm in Indian TV serials. In the past, we have seen many serials where the female protagonist plays the character of her daughter. This way, the makers keep the loved actors in the same serial while the story still rolling ahead. However, it is rare when a male lead gets to play the character of his son. Luckily, the actor Nishant Singh Malkhani just got this opportunity.
Actor Nishant Singh Malkhani on character Shiv:
After a 15-year time leap, Nishant will be playing the character of his son Shiv in the serial Rakshabandhan – Rasal Apne Bhai Ki Dhal. Nishant gets candid about this, and tells us, “After my onscreen wife (Sanchita Banerjee) is killed. I sacrifice my life while saving my children (Shivraaj and Rasal). I will return post the time leap as Umed’s son, the grown-up Shivraaj.”
For the unversed, Nishant had quit his last show Guddan – Tumse Na Ho Payega. As he didn’t want to play the role of a father to the grown-up heroine post the time leap. However, this time the tables have turned for him. To this, Nishant adds, “For male actors, this happens only in films. Fortunately, all the characters I have played so far have been a major part of the story; they’ve been strong and typically heroic, which we don’t get to see otherwise on TV.”
On the work front, Nishant Singh Malkhani is known for his work in serials like Preet Se Bandhi Ye Dori Ram Milaayi Jodi and Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani. He also came to fame from the reality show Bigg Boss. Stay tuned to Bollywood Hush for the latest Hindi TV serial gossip.
