Why Playing Lord Shiva’s Character Is Not New For Paramavatar Shri Krishna’s Tarun Khanna?

This is why the makers of the show did not think of anyone else other than Tarun when it came to playing the role of Lord Shiva.

There are very few characters that stay in the audience’s mind forever and playing Lord Shiva is one such opportunity for any actor. Tarun Khanna’s portrayal of Lord Shiva on And TV’s popular show Paramavatar Shri Krishna has received appreciation from all corners. In fact, the actor’s fans recognise him through this character, making him a household name.

But, do you know that the talented actor who has taken the bar a little up with Lord Shiva’s portrayal is not new on playing this character. For the ones who aren’t aware, this is not the first time for Tarun playing this epic character.

It was way back in the year 2016 when a mythological television series based on the life of God Shani was aired. And it was in this show where Tarun got the first opportunity of playing the role of Lord Shiva (God Shani’s mentor) on the small screen. At that point in time, the actor felt it as a bigger challenge to play this character, as there were some other popular TV actors who had already played Lord Shiva on other shows.

As it is said that hard work pays off, Tarun’s portrayal of Lord Shiva received compliments, to the extent that it has become an iconic role. Looking at the craze and adulation coming his way for his performance, perhaps the makers of Paramavatar Shri Krishna also couldn’t let go the chance of casting him only when it came to Lord Shiva’s part in the show.

No doubt, Tarun Khanna has ruled millions of hearts as Lord Shiva and today has become a phenomenon on television.
