Mohit Abrol gets candid about his new show Sony SAB’s Alibaba Dastaan-e-Kabul

Mohit Abrol, who has been seen in many noteworthy TV shows like Balika Vadhu, Razia Sultan, Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi, Gangaa, and Porus, is currently entertaining his fans as Zorawar in Sony SAB’s latest offering Alibaba Dastaan-e-Kabul.

Commenting on the show and his character, Mohit shared, “Alibaba Dastaan-e-Kabul is truly India’s biggest family entertainer. It is a perfect blend of romance, drama, friendship, and action with the best visual graphics which transport the viewers to a magical world. I am playing the antagonist, Zorawar, who puts down Ali in every instance possible. I am Ali’s enemy in the show, which has a lot of tiff, fights, and sometimes fun banter. As far as my character Zorawar is concerned, when I first heard the briefing, I did not have second thoughts. Zorawar’s character is strong, and I like the power and position that he has. Zorawar might be seen as a very forthcoming person, but he has a lot of layers. There’s much more to explore via this role.”

When asked about the preparation for the role, he mentioned, “In terms of my preparation, I started reading scripts that majorly focused on Urdu, because the language in the show is predominantly Urdu. I had to practice to get my lezha and dialect right. And had to imbibe it in me the way Zorwar talks and walks. I had to get Zorawar’s attitude right, as he feels he owns everything because his father is a well-known personality. Apart from this, I knew horse riding for a long time, so I didn’t face any challenges there. I did a few workshops with my co-actors, to set the chemistry right. I prepared for the character for around 2 months, as Zorwar and Mohit have different personalities.”

On an endnote, he added, “The entire team has worked hard to bring a different world on television. Till now you all have supported us and our show, I hope you continue to shower the same love on us.”
