After tossing various names including Danny Dengzonpa, Jackie Shroff and Mithun Chakraborty for the pivotal role of Arunasur in Devon Ka Dev Mahadev, Rahul Dev has been confirmed. Sources say that Rahul, who has played a villain in South and Punjabi films, fits the role of the demon who took on Lord Shiva. Arunasur is said to be a complex character hailing from Arunachal Pradesh. “Rahul who is tall and fit is apt for the edgy role. It will also be the first time he will be doing a TV show,” says the source. The track will be on air for three months. Danny who had been approached for the role apparently plans his schedule well in advance and though he liked the role couldn’t take it up as he had scheduled a trip to Shillong.
