Mahesh was invited to appear in the series by the same Lou Mitchell, therefore Mahesh signed a contract for six months at immediately, and earned the role of a doctor who worked at Erinsborough hospital.
Mahesh was quite convincing in his performance, therefore the producers renewed the contract with him for further episodes, and in total Mahesh featured in 33 episodes.
In 2011 Mahesh secured the role of Vjay in “Taj”, and subsequently acquired the role of Nasir Khan in the movie named “The Three Ages of Sasha” (2011).

In 2014 Mahesh joined the cast of the Netflix series “Marco Polo” (2014 – 2016), portraying the character of Ahmad. Mahesh mentioned in one of his interviews that the story of his character was quite obvious for him, as he grew up as an immigrant child, forging his way in an unfamiliar nation.
In 2016 Mahesh had a tiny role in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”, but when the filming started, he broke the bridge of his nose during an action scene — one of his fellow-actors injured him with a sword, therefore Mahesh’s role was reduced considerably because of his trauma.

Being the head of Chapter of Sorcerers, he developed intrigues with Emhyr, the Emperor of Nilfgaard, desiring unrestricted dominion over the North. Tracing Ciri, he lost her when she raced from him via the portal, which detonated after Ciri walked through, and scorched Vilgefortz’s face, so he lost his left eye.
