After watching the rerun of ‘Mahabharat‘, fans got shocked as they spotted a desert cooler in one of the episodes, in a scene featuring Bhishma Pitamah. The picture of Bhishma Pitamah & the ‘air cooler’ has gone viral all over social media and netizens have started trolling the makers. Now a few fans of the show clarified that what looks to be a desert cooler is actually a just pillar with a similar design.
Netizens were discussing how it is similar to the Game of Thrones Starbucks goof-up. However, the discussion around the cooler is still going on but some real fans have clarified that it wasn’t an air cooler, it was just a pillar that looked like a cooler.
It was actually a design on the pillars which were a part of the extravagant set of the king’s court. There are many pictures from different angles that prove it was a pillar rather than a cooler. Turns out the makers of Mahabharat were far more careful than HBO when it comes to leaving random modern-day items in a scene.
For the unversed, Bhishma Pitamah was played by Shaktimaan fame Mukesh Khanna. Mukesh was in news recently for mocking Sonakshi Sinha and slamming Ekta Kapoor’s Mahabharat.
Its a pillar not cooler
