Television actress Shraddha Musale does not need any introduction. Fans, who have been watching Indian television’s longest running show, CID, know her very well. The actress is seen in the role of a forensic officer in the show.

After playing the aforementioned characters for many years, the talented actress has been roped in to play a pivotal role in Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s upcoming historical show Porus. Shraddha will essay the role of queen Mahanandini in the show.

Speaking of her role, she says,” Mahanandini is the queen of the Dasyu world, she is a fighter and an empress par excellence. The kingdom resorted to being a matriarchal society given the way this queen led her family and her people to first surviving and then thriving. Dasyu is a clan of pirates, and no catch can go unnoticed from Mahanandani’s razor-sharp vision. She is a consummate sword fighter, navigator and adept at martial arts.”

She further adds,”Nandini is the one who gives shelter to Porus when he was very young and faced with grave dangers. She takes him under her tutelage and ensures he becomes the fighter and the leader. Porus grows up in her kingdom, under her watch.”

Talking about her shooting experience so far, she adds,”The shooting was quite exciting. Some shoot sequences happened in Khao Sok, then at the pirates ship in Pattya, and finally in Ancient City near Bangkok! The show has given me the inspiration to explore and be better in every sense, expect the best from myself. I had to train in martial arts, sword fighting, rowing, and horse-riding. Subsequently, I joined MMA (mixed martial arts) to keep that enthusiasm going. I am in the top frame of mind right now.”

Porus goes on air on 27th November on Sony Entertainment Television.
