Creator, Writer and Producer Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s magnum opus RadhaKrishn is slated to go on air next month! RadhaKrishn marks the first mythological love story on the epic saga to be depicted on television.
With a career spanning a decade and 24 successful shows to his credit, Siddharth has a reputation of bringing in fresh faces to his show and roped in a newbie Mallika Singh to essay the role of Radha but apparently Marathi actor Sumedh Mudgalkar who plays Krishna was not his first choice to play Krishna.
3 movies and a couple of shows old, Sumedh was primarily known for playing negative roles and bagged a film in a lead role playing a psychopath and also won critical acclaim for the same. He was called in to play a dark role which ended by becoming life changing.
Siddharth Kumar Tewary shared, ‘Sumedh’s casting has an interesting story behind it. We had initially called him to audition for the negative lead as he’s worked in the negative space earlier. However, after seeing the audition I felt that there was something about his eyes. They spoke! And hence I asked my team to do a look test for Krishna’s role and once I saw that, I knew we had our Krishna.’
Siddharth’s shows has proven to be a launchpad for many television actors!
