Indian Mythological shows like Mahabharata have been made time and again but BR Chopra’s adaptation in the form of TV series that aired on Doordarshan from 1988 to 1990 till date has no competition. One character which is still remembered from the show is none other than of Duryodhana which was played by actor Puneet Issar who is celebrating his birthday today. After the series, whenever one talks or reads about the character, the only image which comes in mind is that of Puneet who played the role with utter perfection.

If we talk about Puneet Issar’s debut in the industry, it was made through 1983 film Coolie that also had Amitabh Bachchan in it. Not only this, the film also had an infamous accident attached to it which happened during the shoot of a fighting scene. Puneet hit the superstar so hard that his intestines got affected and he had to fight between life and death. Later he was seen in Mahabharat which was 94-episodes long and ran from October 2, 1988, to June 24, 1990.
