Abhishek Banerjee recalls portraying Hathoda Tyagi 

Web show, 'Paatal Lok' became a sensation when it was released an year ago. Along with the tight narrative and Jaideep Ahlawat's amazing performance, what made the show great was Abhishek Banerjee's captivating performance as Hathoda Tyagi. He was praised for conveying the complexity of the character without many dialogues.

The actor recently talked about how thw show changed his path as an actor. He said, "It completely put me in a different light. Earlier I was considered only a comic actor, at least that is what I would like to believe. That's the kind of offer I was getting. I would always think deep inside that why aren’t they offering something different. I was a little fearsome of the fact that I might just get typecasted but thankfully Paatal Lok changed everything. I got a call from a lot of filmmakers and well-wishers in the industry."

Recalling the state of mind of his character, Abhishek said, "I think somewhere they saw the human side of Tyagi too, which I wanted. I was trying to extract the human side of the dark villain, and thankfully I was successful. It was very difficult because you want to get into the headspace of a guy who is oppressed, whose family is oppressed, and to make terms that we are living in a society that is still filled with hate and people actually discriminate even today in the name of caste and religion. So to accept this abut my society was very difficult."
