Star Plus has brought back Mahabharat and is all set with the most important track of the show. With the great war of Kurukshetra, we see all the characters gearing up for the war sequence. Actor Ahem Sharrma took on the pivotal role of Karna and he definitely garnered a lot of applause.
At just the beginning of the great war of Kurukshetra, Ahem Sharrma reminisced that scene. He shared his phobias and how he overcame them.
Ahem says, “I vividly remember shooting for the sequence where Karna tries to rescue Duryodhan, Dushasan and Shakuni who were captured by Jarasandh. Tinu Verma Ji who was playing the role of Jarasandh was also the action director of our show.”
Ahem further adds, “I remember this interesting incident where we had to report on the set at 6:30 AM for an early morning shoot. Tinu Ji explained the sequence where I had to shoot arrows while riding a horse. Though I knew how to ride a horse but not with shooting arrows at the same time. We were shooting in the outskirts of Umergaon on a mountain like terrain. There was a risk of getting injured due to rocks and stones. I was happy that the scene turned out to be really good with Tinu Ji’s direction and our execution. The production team was generous enough to give me a horse to practice and soon I became a pro at it.”
“A project like Mahabharat is once in a lifetime opportunity and I am grateful to Swastik Productions and Siddharth Sir. I am thankful to Swastik Productions’ casting team for considering me apt for the pivotal role of Karna. I would also like to thank Star Plus for bringing back our show to the audience,” concludes Ahem.
Mahabharat’s epic war sequence is gearing up for a finale.
