MUMBAI— The canvas of “Porus” is still expanding. The first global TV series made in India (for Sony Entertainment Television) has roped in Aaron W. Reed to play a crucial part. With the show gaining immense popularity with its visuals and acting, the makers are ensuring that this historical show will be a memory worth remembering.

Aaron W. Reed will be playing a Persian warrior, who is considered to be the biggest, undefeated fighter in the world. He will be fighting a battle with King Kanishka and Porus. The former WWE wrestler and world’s tallest body-builder is currently in India and staying in Umergaon, where the set of the show is located.

Reed is having a good time shooting, interacting with fellow actors and learning some basic Hindi. The production will also ensure that his special requirements, including diet and gym facilities, are in place for him. It is said that last year, Reed visited Mumbai for an event, which saw a lot of global participation. That is when the makers noticed him and took it ahead. He fitted the character perfectly, though his dialogues will be dubbed.
