Sohum Shah has been garnering attention from the nation for his latest release 'Maharani 2' and his role as a politician. While this is the very first time the actor is seen playing the role of a politician, it isn't surprising because the actor is popular for trying his hands at different roles.

Sohum Shah has become an epicenter for conversations since the release of 'Ship of Theseus', 'Talvar', and now for his grey character in 'Maharani 2'.

Talking about how grateful the actor is for the response he is receiving from the audience and the critics, Sohum says, “I grew up watching Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan playing larger-than-life characters and I always wanted to play such characters. When Subhash Kapoor offered me the character of Bheema Bharti in Maharani, I got to live that dream and I can never be thankful enough to him. Subhash Ji wanted to see only Bheema Bharti in flesh and blood and I enjoyed my journey to transform Sohum Shah into Bheema Bharti. I had to put on weight, grow a beard, undergo tremendous dialect training, and let go of several projects that came my way but in the end, I am glad that it was all worth it."

He also added, “Umashankar Singh and Nandan Singh created Bheema, a character so complex and versatile, that I am delighted to bring to life. I am grateful and overwhelmed with the love and appreciation that I have received from both audience and critics for Maharani seasons 1 and 2”.

Meanwhile, on the work front, the actor is has an interesting line up of projects including 'Sanaa' with Radhika Madan and 'Dahaad' with Sonakshi Sinha.
