“I will be playing Shah Jahan and will enter the show when Shivaji seeks his support to release Shahaji Raje from Adilshah’s custody,” he said. The show is being aired on Colors.

“I am now working on my look closely with the production team and I hope the audiences like my work. I have played many negative roles in films and television gives me an opportunity to break this image and portray another side of me,” he added.

Hunar Hali admires Kajol’s versatility

Like most TV actors, Hunar Hali too wants to do different kinds of roles and considers Kajol the best example of versatility.

“As an actress, I always want to be versatile. I don’t want to be stereotyped where people say that she can only fit into a certain role. That’s the reason I like Kajol because she is a person who is truly versatile,” Hunar told IANS.

The 22-year-old, who bagged her first lead role with Colors’ “Chhal - Sheh Aur Maat”, says the thriller genre was interesting for her to take up.

“I should always do something new and different, and that’s a challenge for me. This show was challenging, that’s why I took it up,” she said.

Hunar has earlier been seen in supporting roles in shows like “Grahasti”, “12/24 Karol Bagh” and “Sasuraal Genda Phool”.

She says it’s easy to get stereotyped on the small screen.

“When you play a bhabhi or a mother, that’s when you are typecast. Once a mother always a mother. I am a young girl, and I have so far played roles of young girls only…so I don’t fear being typecast as of now,” she said.
