The Comedy King, Ali Asgar is back on our television screens with yet another show. This time we will see the actor playing the role of Akbar in Star Bharat’s Akbar Ka Bal Birbal. Fans are ecstatic to see Ali make a comeback.
Well, as we all know, this is not the first time that any actor is stepping in the shoes of Mughal Emperor Akbar on a small screen. We have witnessed super hit shows like Jodha Akbar in the past where we have seen Rajat Tokas play Akbar.
There is yet another actor and Ali Asgar’s very good friend and ex-colleague Kiku Sharda, who too has played Akbar in the past. Now it is obvious that comparisons will be made between the two actors.
Also, fans have enjoyed Kiku’s show Har Mushkil Ka Hal Akbar Birbal so much that Ali Asgar might find it difficult to get accepted as Akbar in the eyes of the audience.
So when we spoke to Ali regarding his new show Akbar Ka Bal Birbal, we asked him that is he apprehensive about the comparisons? Read on to know what the actor replied.
“No! One thing is there that I am never concerned about things like, has someone played this character before or has this role already been done on TV? We hardly have 10 stories in life, which are being repackaged and presented differently every time. If we talk about Akbar Birbal, it has been made before, but in different forms like there was Mughal-E-Azam then Jodha Akbar. So the same topic will get recycled according to today’s time, with a new technique, with the new storyline,” Ali Asgar said.
Talking about Kiku Sharda’s show, the actor added, “I had seen Kiku’s show and he had done a fabulous job. Kiku, Vishal and all the characters in the show were good, it was a very good show. I hope and pray that even we do so well. But honestly, I do not get into details like has this topic been done before or will this be done later. I am never into all this, the number game, these things do not bother me much. I only pay attention to my work.”
