Mohit Raina made his Bollywood debut with Uri: The Surgical Strike which also featured Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam in key roles. Months later, the actor made his digital debut with Kaafir opposite Dia Mirza.
Mohit had two big releases in the first half of the year, five months apart. But his sincere portrayal in each of the projects, both a first in the respective fields, is what makes him stand out from his counterparts. Uri saw him as a well-built man from Indian Army’s Special Forces unit. Kaafir, on the other hand, was set in a sensitive space and required an intense approach. We have rounded up five pictures of Mohit that perfectly capture his transformation from a macho Karan Kashyap to a brooding Vedant Rathod.
2. Mohit Raina as Para SF commando Karan Kashyap
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Mohit’s chiseled and beefy physique in Uri made girls go weak in the knees. The army outfit, ’em intense eyes and hard-core action…*sigh*
3. Mohit Raina in an army look from Uri
There is something about this rugged look that makes our dil goes hmmm hmmm….
Disclaimer: Read only for some cheap thrills only: “Roses are red, skies are blue; ek baat batao Raina Ji, aap itne hot ho kyun?“
4. Mohit Raina in Kaafir as Vedant Rathod
Looking at this picture all we can think of is how right Dia Mirza and Bhavani Iyer were when they said Mohit communicates through his eyes and the has kindest one. *insert Aankhon se tumne ye kya keh diya song*
5. Mohit Raina on the sets of Kaafir
Sorry Zakir Khan, iss picture mein badal important nahi hain! It’s a catch twenty-two – to focus on the landscape behind Mohit or that handsome hunk looking away?
6. Mohit Raina as the brooding young Vedant
Just a photo of Mohit as Vedant Rathod in a still from Kaafir, ruining it for us females. No big deal, not at all, so what if we cannot look at any other man ever the same, totally cool. *screaming inside*
