Watched 'Ezel' 35 times for TV role: Sumit Bharadwaj

Actor Sumit Bharadwaj says he watched Turkish TV series "Ezel" for over 30 times to prepare for his role of Krishna in TV show "Ayushaman Bhava".

"I am elated to be part of 'Ayushaman Bhava'. I am seen playing the character of Krishna -- the grown up version of (actor) Ricky Patel. Krishna is the best character till date from the ones that I have played till now," Sumit said in a statement.

"Ricky has done a commendable job and it was a challenging task for me to get into his shoes. To get in to the skin of the character, I thoroughly followed 'Ezel' and watched it 35 times," he added.

"Ayushaman Bhava", aired on Star Bharat, depicts the story of Krish, a boy-next-door who, like children of his age, enjoys playing with toys and playing pranks.

His family and friends dote on him. But Krish's innocent life takes a turn at age 8 when he starts getting flashbacks of some unfortunate events of his previous life.
