Mohit Raina won our hearts when he played the role of Lord Shiva in Devon Ke Dev… Mahadev. The actor gained immense popularity through the show and after it ended, fans were waiting to catch a glimpse of their favourite actor. Mohit recently also starred in a television show Sarfarosh: Saragarhi 1897 and the actor has recently wrapped up shooting for the same. While his rumoured girlfriend Mouni Roy is making her Bollywood debut with Akshay Kumar starrer Gold, fans were waiting to see Mohit on the 70 mm. Well, folks, the time has come as now, Mohit will be seen on the celluloid. Yes, you heard us right.
Mohit is all set to make his debut in Bollywood with an upcoming film, URI. The actor will play an Indian Army Officer in the Aditya Dhar directorial which also stars Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam, Kirti Kulhari and Paresh Rawal.
Talking about his love for the patriotic genre, Mohit said,
It was my dream to join the Indian Army. Since that never got fulfilled, I make up for it by playing a soldier whenever I get a chance. Also, I have always taken up challenging roles on television. So, though I love commercial films, I wanted something different for my film debut as well. ‘Uri’ has actors like Vicky Kaushal and Paresh Rawal, and it will be a learning experience working with them. Whether it is mythology, history or any other genre, the role has to be backed by strong content.
Talking about starring in URI he added,
The nation always comes first, and I feel that it is a great opportunity to be part of a film that portrays the incident.
We can’t wait to see Mohit on that big screen already!
