“It was a great experience working on a different show like Waaris which focuses on the practices prevailing in the society such as a male child being preferred over a female child.

“Also, the last scene I shot gave me chills literally, and was a very memorable experience. My exit in the show is necessary to take the story forward and I request all viewers to watch the show as it creates awareness,” Mukesh, popularly known as the small screen’s Shaktimaan, said in a statement.
