Akhilendra Mishra: Always wanted to play Ravan

MUMBAI : Actor Akhilendra Mishra, best known for essaying the role of Kroor Singh in the 1990s TV show "Chandrakanta", says he always wanted to play Ravan, and his dream was realised in the 2008 tele-serial "Ramayan".

"I always wanted to play Ravan. 'Ramayan' was my first ever mythological serial. I had a routine set for myself. I would daily visit the Shiv mandir in Baroda and recite Shiv Tandav and meditate for an hour before reaching the set. Since the temple was in the Army premises, I had got special permissions to visit the temple," he recalled.

"I am a huge follower of Bholenath. My belief in Bholenath helped me perform the role with ease. This routine of going to the temple followed by shoot lasted for around seven months. During those days, I got to read a lot about Lord Ram and Ravan. Overall, it was a beautiful experience," he said of shooting for the show, which currently airs on Dangal TV.
