"I don't know how the channel is going to represent my character or my acts to the audience. But this is true that I'm shooting for the show and will feature in the show as a 'new entry'," Raju Srivastav was quoted as saying by a news agency.

“Yes, I have started shooting for this show. The channel and the team are happy with the episodes I have shot for them and have called me for more episodes,” he added.
