Namik Paul told IANS here: "I was in a boarding school then went to a college abroad, so I missed a lot of shows. But there were some shows that we never watched, but knew about them. Kasautii... was one of them. It (acting in a reboot) can be a double-edged sword. There will always be comparisons, but playing those iconic characters would be exciting too."


Talking about his childhood days, he shared: "Earlier things were simpler. Maybe there were 10 shows. When I was a kid, everybody used to wake up on Sundays and watch Mahabharata and Ramayan. It was like a ritual".

If someone asked him to accept the mythological roles he is ready to accept it. He continued: "Yes, I will be up for the challenge if they give me a gym so that I can stay in shape. You don't get to wear a lot of shirts in such shows so...".

As for Kasautii Zindagii Kay, he said he didn't turn it down. "I had signed on for it (Kasautii...), but they (makers) decided later that I would fit better as the lead of (Kawach...). I am ecstatic to do it," he said.


Talking about his character Angad, Namik Paul said, "He is like the 90s and 2000s Hindi film hero. He is all about family and love." In his last show Ek Deewana Tha where he played the character of a ghost. Kawach Mahashivratri deals with supernatural forces and powers.

Namik Paul said, "I think the last time playing a ghost was a 'Wow'. I am back to playing a normal character. You can be a normal person caught in extraordinary circumstances. That's what most stories are about".
