Mohit Raina made his Bollywood debut with Uri: The Surgical Strike. Although he had less screen time, the actor made a make. And if you are still not over his fine acting chops, the actor has something new to offer as he is ready to entertain you again with his digital debut, Kaafir.
The digital drama also marks Dia Mirza‘s web debut who features as a Pakistani woman Kainaaz stuck in Kashmir with her five-year-old daughter Seher. In conversation with ZEE5, Mohit shared that he quickly wanted to say yes when the script of Kaafir was narrated to him. "As an actor, whenever you are being narrated the script, in a minute or two you know whether you want to be a part of it or not. You always know which way this narration heading towards. I knew I wanted to be a part of Kaafir. No matter how I had to do it, how I had to become the character, it was just a matter of time."
Mohit, who plays a journalist cum lawyer in the show, asserts that current times are the best for anyone to be a part of the industry. "I just look at it as a greedy person who is moving around in satisfaction of his creative needs, irrespective of the platform. As long as my needs get satisfied, I am more than happy with that. I am not looking forward to a particular platform to be present at, I can move around. This is the best time for anyone to be a part of the industry, irrespective of the profession. You can be a technician, you can be a writer, you can be a creative person, there is so much good happening all around. You just need to be there to grasp it and make the most of the opportunity," he said.
Having transitioned from television to films and now the web, Mohit reveals he is open to doing content that satisfies him as an actor, regardless of the platform. "I’d love to be back on TV, but right now it’s a phase where the content provided is very nice. Irrespective of the platform, if I get the right script I’d jump into it. Till the time my creative hunger is satisfied, I am more than happy." Contrary to what reports suggested, marriage is not on Mohit’s mind, “I was misquoted on that. Marriage is not on the cards right now. It will happen at the right time, it will happen soon. Right now, my focus is on satisfying my creative hunger and greed."
