    Bharadwaj had uploaded a video on Facebook regarding the re-telecast of Mahabharat on Doordarshan, and had said that he was overwhelmed with the response. He also added that the response has given him the strength to start using other platforms to interact with people more."

    "You all have now become my online family. Two days ago I had posted a video about Mahabharat which was viewed by 35 lakh people and reached more than one crore people. This is a miracle, it isn't my power, it is the blessing of God and your love."

    "This has encouraged me to start my YouTube channel, Instagram account and Twitter handle, which I have begun from today," he added. Since then, he has also uploaded similar videos on both, Twitter as well as Instagram. Take a look:

    Nitish Bharadwaj had gained immense popularity after playing Lord Krishna in the mythological series. In the video, he said that he still feels amused that people used to refer to him as God. Talking about it he said, "People were writing that I am Krishna, but no, I am a simple mortal man... If I have said something nice, then the credit goes to the scriptures, my parents and teachers. All of the shortcomings are just mine," he added.

    Apart from mythological shows like Ramayan and Mahabharat, other Doordarshan shows like Mukesh Khanna's Shaktimaan, Byomkesh Bakshi, Shah Rukh Khan's Circus, Shriman Shrimati and Chanakya have also made a well-appreciated comeback.
