A video of 84-year-old actor Arvind Trivedi, who played Ravan in ‘Ramayan‘, getting emotional after watching Sita’s apaharan scene has gone viral on social media. Owing to the lockdown, Doordarshan is showcasing some of the massively popular shows like ‘Ramayan’ and ‘Mahabharat’ on public demand.


The TRP ratings of Doordarshan hit the roof, thanks to the re-run of one of its most popular mythological show ‘Ramayan’. People are still watching the show’s re-runs with equal enthusiasm. In a viral video, we can see Arvind Trivedi, who portrayed the role of Ravan, watching the re-run and getting emotional during ‘Sita apaharan’ scene.

We also see the veteran actor joining his hands as if seeking an apology for playing the role of the cruel Ravan. A Twitter user had shared the video alongside the caption, “So touching. 84-year-old veteran #ArvindTrivedi ji watching his #Ravana role after 30 years & seeks forgiveness from others in the room!  #Ramayana #Angad #RamayanOnDDNational #Ravan”

You can check out the viral video below:

‘Ramayan’ was not just any other mythological show. This Ramanand Sagar’s production was the kind which brought the entire family together. Back in the 80s, when it aired on Doordarshan people would wind up their work in advance so that they didn’t miss out on even a single scene. It was really one of its kind. And going by the current TRP of the Doordarshan looks like people are still loving ‘Ramayan’ equally.
