Nitish Bhardwaj, best known forplaying Lord Krishna in B R Chopra's Mahabharata, is set to reprise the role for Atul Satya Koushik's play Chakrvyuh.

The 51-year-old actor, who quit his successful career of a veterinarian to pursue his passion in acting, said he was just 23-year-old when he was picked for the epic role.

"It is almost after 25 years that I will once again pick the flute and get on the stage. I am a bit nervous as I, at no cost, want to disappoint my fans who have for decades showered me with their love," Nitish said in a statement.

The play Chakravyuh will be staged in Delhi tomorrow.

Nitish is also awaiting the release of his Hindi film

Yaksha directed by Mukul Abhyankar in which he plays the title role.
