From playing the lead in many notable drama shows to attempting his acting skills by playing big bad negative characters, well-known television actor Raj Singh began his career experimenting with negative roles before finding his comfort space with the mythology genre. The actor has been essaying the mythological character of, Naarad Muni for the last two years and is once again set to play the character in &TV’s new mythological fiction show, Kahat Hanuman…Jai Shree Ram, produced by Peninsula Pictures.
Talking about picking this character once again, Raj said, “I have been doing mythological shows for the last three years and the character of Naarad has stayed with me for quite long now. People recognize me more as the character than with my original identity. Frankly, that makes me swell with pride as it says a lot about my art. I have always loved this character for its nature, personality and intelligence and considered it to be one of my strengths.”
Commenting on his comfort and love for mythological shows, Raj said, “While doing drama shows on and off, I have played quite a few negative characters. I have come to believe that positive characters are highly respected. Mythological shows in general are finite in nature and never follow a similar plot line which always gives viewers a variation in content and a different perspective to look forward to. In so many ways they help give a glimpse of our mythological history to the younger generation who are mostly exposed to content via television. While I would love to take up drama again, my fans have thoroughly enjoyed seeing me as Naarad and maybe someday I wish to play the lead in a full-fledged show on this character.”
