Saurabh Shukla : I don’t believe in occult

Insight Online News

New Delhi, Sep 12 : Veteran actor Saurabh Shukla, who will be next seen playing the character of Swaroop Purohit in “Dahan: Raakan Ka Rahasya”, has shared insights about his character and his perception about the world of occult.

‘Dahan-Raakan ka Rahasya’ is all set to take the audience into the dark world of its suspense while opening up too many questions of its mysterious world.

The story revolves around one IAS officer who sets out on a quest to find the truth in the face of doom amid the ongoing age-old superstitions and myths.

Talking about it, Saurabh said in a statement: “Dahan comes with a different story altogether and my belief about the subject of the series personally is that I have not done a subject like that, because I as a person don’t believe in occult.

“I do not believe that things just happen by some unknown forces. Yes, of course there are unknown forces in the world because we don’t know about all the forces in this universe.”

He said that personally, his approach towards things which happen thus are a bit scientific. He likes to find out how they actually happened because even if it happened in nature, in this universe, on earth or outside — there are things happening which we don’t know about.

A blind believer does not want to search further, and ends up putting it on some idea — like the idea of god, demon or something and that’s the end of the matter for them, he said.

“But a scientific mind would always try to figure out how things are happening and why do they happen and that’s what is the approach of this series which is very unique for me.

“I am playing a character who looks like a blind believer. But it is also the ancient wisdom which he tries to crack. So in a way, my character though he looks like a blind believer but as the story progresses we will see he is trying to decode the age old wisdom which is written,” the senior actor added.

It will air on Disney+ Hotstar from September 16.
