Mohit Raina’s Sarfarosh: Saragarhi 1897 is going to premiere on 2 February 2018. The show will be premiering on the new Discovery JEET channel. Mohit has undergone quite a transformation for the role, as he is attired in a soldier’s outfit with a large turban and a big beard, almost erasing his rugged handsome features. Sarfarosh: Saragarhi 1987 is based on the lives of 21 brave soldiers of 36th Sikh regiment of the British Indian Army, that was responsible for defending an army outpost at Saragarhi in the North-West Frontier Province. The soldiers had to face a violent, bombarding assault by over 10,000 Pashtun and Orakzai tribals in September 1897.
When the show was announced, it already made headlines because of the intriguing story line and the epic scale of the show, and when, later on the teaser was released it made even the most skeptical minds excited. The merely seconds long teaser shows the grand and devastating scale of the movie, with mind blowing blast sequences in the sand, and the beautiful scenery.
Mohit Raina has become one of the most renowned faces of the Indian Television, because of his successful turn as Shiva, through which he was able to get a large fan following on his twitter account. And now, as he has taken the challenging role, he will sure be getting even more widespread acclaim and recognition when the show is released. The announcement for the show came from Mouni Roy, his co-star, and it is apparent that she is very excited for the show as well. A new trailer will also be released soon, which is surely going to show a lot more about the story and the characters in the show. There are not many epic shows on television, but this one seems that it will be worth the wait.
