Rohit shares, “The character of Alexander has been very close to my heart and I love playing the role. We are shooting the Persian war of Issus in the upcoming track and its mind boggling. I am wearing two layers of armors for the same and we are shooting outdoors in 40 degrees heat. I have got rashes on the front and back of my upper body because of the heavy costumes and the heat. It is irritating to put the costumes on that again but we only have limited time period to shoot for the same. The production has doctors on the set all the time for precautions.. But all this is worth it and I believe nothing can stop me from giving my best. The show must go on !”
