Talking about his role, Gaurav told a leading daily, “For the past two-and-a-half years, I was focussing on the digital platform as I wanted to experiment with different roles. Then came this offer, which was hard to refuse. Ek Shakti… Ek Aghori’s concept is unheard of. The intrigue and eccentricity surrounding the show along with the different layers of the character drew me to it.” Gaurav has performances in Doli Armaano Ki, Piya Ka Ghar, and Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyann to his credit. The handsome hunk is making a comeback to the small screen with Aghori. As for Parag, he has featured in Pavitra Rishta, Jodha Akbar, Brahmarakshas amongst others shows.
