Raina aka Mahadev talks about his grueling shoot schedule, his social life and more...

Is playing Mahadev as tough as it seems?

I have to shoot 18 hours a day because it is a costume drama and it takes time for me to get ready and prepare for the role. Since our set is located outside the city, sometimes I have to stay back on the sets in the night to resume work early next morning. Initially, it was hectic but now I am used to it.

Fans are raving about the good-looking God. Does it embarrass you?
People approach me for blessings. But I feel really bad when the elderly come and touch my feet. I try to avoid such situations.

Do you feel you will get typecast after this role?

I have done different shows and I don’t follow any book of rules. M not scared of getting typcast. It's all part of the entertainment industry.

You gave up your film career to do this show?

I did one film but after that I was not offered any good role. Moreover, I never considered the small screen as a small medium. It has always been a huge platform for actors.

You are dating your co-star Mouni Roy for quite some time now. Is marriage on the cards?

Not now. I don’t get enough time to spend with her. I will be able to take stock only after Mahadev ends. Marriage can wait.
