“Dahaan 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, So things happen, but there is only the approach to it. For my personal approach towards anything which happens is a bit scientific approach that I would like to find how that actually happened because it happens in the nature, it happens in this universe, so even on earth or outside earth there are things happening which we don’t know about but what a blind believer does is that they do not want to search further, so they just put it on some idea, you know, like the idea of god, the idea of demon or something and at the end of the matter.”
Not a traditional supernatural series

“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 is also 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.” Saurabh Shukla on his character.
