Actor Sumit Kaul, known for shows like "Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat" and "Peshwa Bajirao", is back on the small screen. This time he will be playing a father to a 20-something in the supernatural-fantasy drama show "Nazar".

"More than the role, the genre excited me... It is not the reality that most of us live in. So to make it real and believable for the audience, is a challenge for an actor. I love such challenges," Sumit said in a statement to IANS.

"I tend to get offered either negative or characters with grey shade. In '24' season two, playing Gyan Thakkar gave me an opportunity to play a positive character. Yet again here with 'Nazar', I get to play a man who has absolute clarity about his priorities and his sense of right and wrong and is uncompromising on his principles.

"He is heroic in his actions but extremely mysterious in his demeanour."

Sumit loves that dichotomy.

"It's this dichotomy because of which he could be perceived as negative," said the actor, who has featured in films like ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI and HAIDER.
