Ashish Vidyarthi got role in '24' by chance

New Delhi, July 25 (ANI): One of silver screen's renowned villains, Ashish Vidyarthi, who will be seen playing a dreaded drug Mafia in the second season of Anil Kapoor-starrer '24,' has revealed that he got the part just by chance.

"I had gone to meet Rensil (D'Silva, 24's writer) and they offered me the role by chance. It's a great joy for me to work on television after a long time," said the 54-year-old baddie, reports The Deccan Chronicle.

Usually know for his antagonist characters, Ashish expressed his excitement to work with the B'town hunk Anil and said it's been more than a decade since the two have worked together.

"The biggest attraction for me to do 24 was the opportunity to work with Mr Kapoor. I am sharing screen space with him after a very long time. He is a very easy-going person who invites excellence all around him. He is so senior, yet his only concern is getting other actors to give their best. He is a selfless actor and I love that about him. It's been an extraordinary experience working with him again after decades," noted Ashish.(ANI)
