Fans of the good looking hunk Mrunal Jain have been getting a treat off late. The reason being that Mrunal is seen in double role, in Yash Patnaik’s superhero show, ‘Nagarjuna’. When asked about his experience in playing the dual role, Mrunal says,
“It has been more than 8 months that I am doing Nagarjuna and the whole time has been so full of fun and learning. I feel blessed to portray two roles on TV at the same time. Indian television is dominated by female protagonists, so getting two roles in a show is a very big thing and it satisfies my creativity.”
Mrunal reveals another facet of playing a double role which makes his work interesting.
He says , “I enjoy playing both Rajveer and Shankachurna’s. Also, the outfit that I wear is something that has never been seen before on Indian television. It makes me stand out onscreen.”
The actor, who has matured as a person over the years, credits the roles he has portrayed in enabling his emotional growth.
“Playing complex characters actually helps me bring out the personality on-screen and off-screen both. When it comes to Shankachurna, he is a bare chested guy. So you need a good body to carry that kind of attire. I am maintaining my body for that look. Physicality always played a huge role in my career.”
And what about the best compliment he got for his physique?
“The best compliment I got was recently someone told me ‘You look like a Bollywood hero. My fans also say so!” he smiles.
