Pravin
Kumar
Sobti,
who
played
the
iconic
role
of
Bheem
in

Mahabharat
,
passed
away
on
February
7,
at
his
Delhi
residence.
The
actor
had
done
several
films
and
was
an
athelete.
Puneet
Issar,
who
played
the
role
of
Duryodhan
in

Mahabharat

remembered
the
late
actor
and
said
that
though
they
were
enemies
in
reel
life,
they
were
like
brothers
in
real
life.
The
actor
also
added
that
Pravinji
had
great
sense
of
humour.

Puneet
told
Times
Of
India
that
the
producer
of

Mahabharat

BR
Chopra
wanted
him
to
play
the
role
of
Bheem,
but
he
had
made
up
his
mind
that
he
would
play
Duryodhan.
He
said
that
although
BR
Chopra
felt
that
his
physique
and
wrestler
body
suited
the
role
of
Bheem,
he
was
adamant
to
play
Duryodhan,
which
is
when
it
became
a
task
to
find
someone
even
stronger
than
Duryodhan
to
be
cast
in
the
show.
Puneet
then
revealed
that
he
suggested
Pravin
Kumar’s
name
because
he
was
an
international
athlete,
6
feet
8
inches
tall,
much
taller
than
him,
and
the
latter
agreed.
He
added
that
the
rest
is
history.

Puneet Issar & Pravin Kumar Sobti

Puneet
and
Pravin
shared
great
rapport.
He
revealed
how
his
daughter
got
terrified
of
his
and
Pravin’s
fight,
and
the
latter
had
to
talk
to
his
daughter
and
made
her
comfortable.

The
actor
said,
“I
always
called
or
met
him
when
I
visited
Delhi.
He
had
a
great
sense
of
humour.
He
and
I
had
fight
scenes
in
Mahabharat
and
looking
at
the
promos,
I
remember
how
my
daughter
had
got
terrified
of
Pravinji
bashing
me
up.
He
then
came
home
and
spoke
to
my
daughter
and
made
her
feel
comfortable.
He
was
constantly
cracking
jokes
and
though
we
were
enemies
in
reel
life,
we
were
like
brothers
in
real
life.
In
the
past
few
years,
he
stayed
at
home
and
enjoyed
his
life
peacefully.”

how

Mahabharat
‘s
last

remembered
scene.
Talking
about
the
challenging
scene,

actor
concluded
by
saying,
“I
had
to
keep

my
body
is

even
stronger
Bheem,
come
on
hit
me.
And

had
to
fight
with
me.
