Sony Entertainment Television’s show Punyashlok Ahilyabai has struck the right chord with the viewers with its depiction of the inspiring life of Queen Ahilyabai Holkar.
The makers have now roped in popular actor Dushyant Wagh to play Bhola, a pivotal character in the show.
Dushyant says, “Although I have been a part of historical projects before, Punyashlok Ahilyabai stands out. Unlike other period dramas, the storyline doesn’t focus on a love story, or it has a war as the central theme. But, it gives us insight into the individual journey of Ahilyabai Holkar, in all its glory. The show celebrates the bravery, courage and valour of a warrior woman. Hence, I am really proud to be associated with such an exceptional show. It is my honour to essay Bhola’s character, who in his own little way will guide young Ahilya towards becoming one of the finest rulers.”
