Apne, the well-known model, Mr. India and Mr. International, Aryan Vaid would now be seen portraying the character of mythological greatest ever villain Duryodhan in Ekta Kapoor's version of Mahabharat.
Aryan, who has an image of a hunk in Bollywood, feels that people would accept him in his new role. "I am very excited about it. I maybe playing a mythological character but you can't exactly call the serial to be a mythological one. Ekta's Mahabharat would be presented in a modern and a different way and I am sure people would be able to connect me with Duryodhan"s character", an excited Aryan describes.
Aryan further adds that Manish Malhotra's contribution in the costume department would be a great benefit. "Though we haven't yet worked on my looks but Manish Malhotra will be doing the costumes and I am sure it will be pretty good", the hunk goes on praising Malhotra.
Hope, this gay icon is able to do justice with the manly character of Duryodhan as well as he has done to his previous characters.
