Diya Aur Baati Hum: Akhilendra Mishra the new villain in Sandhya and Suraj’s life?

The cunning and conniving Kroor Singh in popular series Chandrakanta, is all set to play a negative role in Diya Aur Baati Hum

Actor Akhilendra Mishra is upbeat about his new role on small screen. The actor will be seen as the chief of an extremist group in Diya Aur Baati Hum. His character will be a ‘master of disguise’ and a man of few words focused on his mission.“I have heard a lot of good things about the show. It brings across a very strong message which has been projected in a very constructive manner to the viewers. I am really looking forward to the role,” Akhilendra said in a statement.

“For the first time, I am playing a negative character in a show that has a police background,” added the actor, who has featured in films like Lagaan, Sarfarosh, Gangaajal, The Legend of Bhagat Singh and Shootout At Lokhandwala.

Diya Aur Baati Hum, which airs on Star Plus, traces the journey of a girl who realises her dream of becoming an Indian Police Service officer despite many hurdles. We hope that Akhilesh does not spell more trouble for Sandhya Rathi (Deepika Singh) in Suraj’s (Anas Rashid) life.
