When 'Mahabharat' returns in 2020, Nitish Bharadwaj, aka Lord Krishna, joins Instagram

Actor Nitish Bharadwaj , best known for his role as Lord Krishna in BR Chopra The Mahabharat television series has expanded its online presence, opening accounts on social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

Doordarshan is currently broadcasting the Ramayan and Mahabharat mythological series at the request of the public amid the current national blockade.

Bharadwaj, who had previously uploaded a video on Facebook about the Mahabharat broadcast, said he was overwhelmed by the response.

You all have become my online family. Two days ago I posted a video about Mahabharat that was viewed by 35 lakh people and reached over a million people. This is a miracle, it is not my power, it is the blessing of God and your love

This has encouraged me to start my YouTube channel, my Instagram account and my Twitter account, which I started from today, the actor said in a video post.

The 56-year-old actor, who gained immense popularity by playing Lord Krishna, said he still finds it amusing that people refer to him as God.

I love to share with all of you because of your encouraging participation. But I am not God. People wrote that I am Krishna, but no, I am a mere mortal man ... If I said something good, then the credit goes to the scriptures, my parents and teachers. All deficiencies are mine alone, he added.

Here is the video:

In addition to 'Ramayan' and 'Mahabharat', other shows that have returned include Shaktimaan, Byomkesh Bakshi Shahrukh Khan protagonist Circus, Shriman Shrimati and Chanakya among others.
