Abhishek Sharma, who has featured in shows like “Best of Luck Nikki” and “Mere Angne Mein”, says he is happy to play the lead role in a show for the first time. He got the opportunity after almost 800 auditions.

In the show, “Nimki Mukhiya”, he plays Babbu Singh. “Getting a lead role is a dream come true. I came here (Mumbai) in 2010 from Delhi and after seven years and almost 800 auditions, I got this. I am happier for my parents. They trusted me and had patience, Abhishek said in a statement.

How much does he relate to his character?”My character in this show is a bit unreal in today’s world. So, it is not relatable. Babbu singh is a guy who has been raised in a ‘mukhiya’ family and he is a brat. He knows he will be the next ‘mukhiya’ of the village. I don’t relate with the character as I am not like him in real life. But that’s what I love about my job. I am portraying a character that’s totally different from me.”
