Dev makes his debut in television with a mythological show on Life OK
After tossing various names including Danny Denzongpa, Jackie Shroff and Mithun Chakraborty for the pivotal role of Arunasur in Devon Ke Dev Mahadev, Rahul Dev has been confirmed. Sources say that Rahul, who has played a villain in South and Punjabi films, fits perfectly in the role of the demon who took on Lord Shiva. Arunasur is said to be a complex character hailing from Arunachal Pradesh. “Rahul, who is tall and fit, is apt for the edgy role. It will also be the first time he will be doing a TV show,” says the source. The track will be on air for three months.
Danny who was earlier approached for the role apparently had planned his schedule well in advance and hence, even though he liked the role he couldn’t take it up as he was heading for a trip to Shillong.
