Popular TV actor from the 90s, Nitish Bharadwaj has shared in an interaction with a national daily that he does not approve of the new age mythology shows based on the Ramayan and Mahabharat. He said that the shows do not focus on the literature anymore and more on the superficial features like body appearances. The actor made a comment on the VFX overdose and show of six-pack abs which has become the center of attention for the audiences.
