Actor Prakhar Shukla, the talented actor from a small town in Madhya Pradesh is now looking forward to the huge opportunity of winning audiences’ hearts in the role of a guy who served his motherland.
He will be seen essaying the role of Lance Nayak Chand Singh in Discovery JEET’s show 21 Sarfarosh: Saragarhi (Contiloe).
Prakhar who is an engineering graduate from Bhopal has to his credit the Vikram Bhatt web-series Maaya.
In the Discovery JEET show, along with Havildar Ishan Singh, played by Mohit Raina, his character will be the only one to be among the ranks in the clan.
Talking about his preparation phase for the role, Prakhar told IndianWikiMedia.com, “The casting director was impressed with my acting and height (6’ 1) when I was spotted. It took me three months to grow the beard and adopt the Punjabi tone in my dialect. As I am not from a Punjabi background, I worked a lot to get it right.”
On his role, the actor stated, “Chand Singh is a kind of a mastermind, similar to Sherlock Holmes. He assumes things and that actually happens. He is the one handling the official work. I am really honoured to play Lance Nayak Chand Singh who laid down his life for his motherland.”
Wish you the best, Prakhar!!
