Actor Kanan Malhotra is back on television after a year as Yudhistir in Swastik Productions show Suryaputra Karn. Kanan whom we have seen in shows like Chand Chupa Badaal Mein, Geeta is going to play the eldest Pandava in Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s Suryaputra Karn.
When asked Kanan says,”I always used to think mythological shows are never my cup of tea as it requires a different mindset altogether. But when I got the offer this time I thought of taking it up. I felt as an actor I should take up new things and explore new avenues. The character Yudhistir has to offer a lot to an actor.
Right now we are at Jhansi shooting in a treachorous climate with costume which is made of rubber and heavy jewellery. Believe me this is not easy. I feel the challenges are more in mythology and I am happy that I have taken this.”
Kanan also has to work on his body language a lot as he adds,” As a character Yudhistir has a lot of calmness in him and also at the same time he has this pleasant smile in his face. So I am working on that line. There is a kind of stiffness which you have to maintain while acting because he is a king. In real life I am very spontaneous and like to have fun in life so on the set I can feel the contrast.”
