Actor Sumit Kaul, who featured as Salman in Shahid Kapoor-starrer 'Haider', will now be seen in a negative role in the historical show, Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat. He will play Justin (Ashoka's step uncle). The half-Greek character will be multi-layered and he will sport a stubble for the part.
Apparently, he had an edge over other contenders because of his green eyes and fair complexion. Sumit remained unavailable for comment.
