Star Bharat’s latest offering ‘Haathi Ghoda Paal Ki Jai Kanhaiya Laal Ki’ is one of the most exciting mythological dramas that is releasing on the tube in recent times.

And since the promos have hit the tube, baby Hazel Kaur who plays Bal Krishna has already won hearts. Kaur is the perfect amalgamation of innocence and mischievous, something that the character highly demanded. However, it is being said that the process of casting was quite a tedious task for the makers. A little birdie from the set reveals that the makers wanted to pick the perfect face for the character which led them to struggle for a bit.
“The makers did a dipstick amongst the audience so as to know what kind of face they’d like to see play Bal Krishna. The one name that popped up the most in all the research was of Taimur,” a source close to the production stated. Apparently, Taimur, the son of superstars Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, was the audience’s favourite to play the character of Krishna. Ostensibly, the makers were looking for a fresh like Taimur or his doppelganger to come on board for the show. After hundreds of auditions, it was eventually Hazel who was finalised to play the character. Although, Hazel is not a Taimur lookalike she has all the charm to play Bal Krishna.
