Ssharad Malhotraa who plays title role in ‘Bharat Ka Veer Putra Maharana Pratap’ recently shot for a sequence where there was a Shivling sequence in the show where he was supposed to do Maha Abhishek (special worship of Lord Shiva). After getting done with the regular shot, the cast and crew urged him to do the bahubali act since it is the flavour of the season.
Ssharad says, “I had an important sequence coming up where I had to be topless. Therefore, I pumped up iron for two weeks. Due to back injury for two months, I didn’t go to gym. The show has taken three year leap leap and we were shooting the sequence at China Creek Mira Road. The Shivling weighed around thirty kilos. It was made of fiber and heavy material. I felt great and I have seen the film twice already. I have been a shiv bhakt since five years; and my mom is a devotee too. I have a miniature Shivling at my temple at home and I offer my prayers daily and I fondly call him Baba.”
