Even though Mohit Raina, whose stint as Lord Shiva has ended, it has left a massive impact on fans and viewers of the show. Mohit Raina playing the role of lord shiva on screen created so much buzz among fans that a few of them even started touching the actor’s feet in real life as well.
Well, Mohit Raina back then shared his experience of playing Shiva and said it is time for him “reinvent”. after playing the mythological lord for so long he said that he is not looking at any mythological show but he will make sure his new roles befit the dignity of Mahadev’s character.
he was then asked,
Not having to constantly live up to the image of a super god, does not give you a feeling of liberation.
To which he replied,
It does! Oh yes, it does. I feel relaxed and happy. Being the face of the show was a huge responsibility. But whatever responsibility I was given I fulfilled to the best of my abilities. Today, when people come to me and say I’ve touched their lives and that their perspective and vision on life have changed, it feels good. In comparison with their happiness, my discomfort seems negligible. The show has changed lives. I am happy about that. But I am also relieved.
Further, he was asked to answer more questions including, the atmosphere on the sets during the closing weeks.
Mohit went on to say that,
Everyone was mentally prepared for the end. I am not the only one who is proud to be associated with the show. Every person, even those doing the smallest of jobs, proudly declared they worked for the Mahadev series.
on being asked about becoming the brand ambassador for Lord Shiva He said
Yes, I did. I took Mahadev’s message across the world. The experience has made me a better human being. I now value life more. I understand the cycle of nature…Everything in life is connected. Every person is equal. All the things that I’ve learned while playing Mahadev will really be beneficial to my life. This wasn’t just a serial for me. It was a learning experience. I hope the people’s love and respect for me remain even when they stop thinking of me as Mahadev.
Unless you suddenly go wild and start dancing on bar counters?
I don’t see the possibility of that happening. I’ve never done it. Why would I do it now? I see myself as having a huge responsibility. For me, art is important.
