Meanwhile, Mukesh, who played Bhishma Pitamah in BR Chopra’s Mahabharat, is constantly making comments on social media these days about the nationwide shortage of money, hospital beds, Remdisivir injections and oxygen cylinders for the treatment of Corona patients.
He has been constantly expressing his opinion against the election rallies and religious events in different states of the country amid the growing concerns of the Coronavirus spike. Last year, Mukesh was in news when he allegedly refused to be a part of the Mahabharat reunion on The Kapil Sharma Show. The actor had opened up about the same, claiming that Kapil Sharma had tarnished his character Shaktimaan during a skit in his previous show. He called The Kapil Sharma Show ‘vulgar’ and the worst of all.
