Actor Dinesh Mehta, who is currently essaying the role of Lord Shiva in the television show Santoshi Maa – Sunaye Vrat Kathayein, feels it is amazing to play such a mythological character.
“It was high time for me to take a break from the negative characters and come up with something new and challenging. Playing Lord Shiva came to me as an opportunity and I’m enjoying my role. I feel I’ll not be typecast anymore,” Dinesh said.
Dinesh Mehta earlier essayed negative roles in television shows like Yeh Hai Mohabbatien and Haiwaan: The Monster.
Santoshi Maa – Sunaye Vrat Kathayein, which features actress Gracy Singh in the titular role, airs on &TV.
