Mohit Raina born on 14 August 1982 is an Indian TV and Bollywood actor, most known for the lead role of Lord Shiva in the TV series, Devon Ke Dev – Mahadev aires on LifeOK.
Born and brought up in Jammu in Jammu and Kashmir state, where he did his schooling from Kendriya Vidyalaya, Jammu, he left Kashmir after graduating with a degree in commerce from Jammu University. While still getting ready to become a chartered accountant, he moved to Mumbai to pursue his acting dreams. Mohit first appeared in the modeling competition, The Grasim Mr. India, in 2006 where he was placed among the top five contestants.
His acting career began in 2004 when he acted in a science fiction TV show called Antariksh that aired on Star Plus. In 2008, he starred as JaiKishan in a comedy movie called Don Muthu Swami, starring actor Mithun Chakraborthy in the lead role, however the film too didn't do well. He again returned to television in 2009 with another Star Plus show called Chehra, a suspense drama revolving around a handicapped girl. Mohit played her husband Garv, a young business tycoon. Mohit was also a part of Bandini (NDTV Imagine). In December 2010, a show Ganga Kii Dheej aired on Sahara One in which Mohit Raina played the male lead, Agantuk, who plays a pivotal role in eradication of the evil customs of the village.
After laying low for a while after Ganga Kii Dheej, Raina came back as the main lead in Nikhil Sinha's Devon Ke Dev - Mahadev, on the entertainment channel Life OK. The series focuses on the legendary Hindu deity, Shiva and portrays his journey from a hermit to a householder through his marriage to Sati and later to Parvati. According to Mohit, the most difficult preparation was to put on weight in order to look powerful in the role, as the show depicts Shiva in human form, but with all his godly attributes. The actor has now also started learning the Indian classical dance form Kathak as Shiv is a consummate dancer and dance is an integral part of the show. Wikipedia
