Ramayana and Mahabharat are two of the biggest mythology in India and on television they have had the perfect adaptation during the Doordarshan era. Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan had attained cult status and one of the most iconic roles remains of Arvind Trivedi who played Ravan in the series. Unfortunately the actor passed away today at the age of 82.
The actor was not well for quite some time and this morning he suffered a heart attack that led to multiple organ failure. The actor leaves us for heavenly abode but surely leaves a huge void in Indian television. The actor’s passing away has left many saddened and have expressed their grief on social media.
Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi took to his Twitter account to express his grief and share some kind words for the actor. Mr Narendra Modi shared a lovely picture where he’s seen on stage with the late Arvind Trivedi, shaking hands with him. His tweet reads, “We have lost Shri Arvind Trivedi, who was not only an exceptional actor but also was passionate about public service. For generations of Indians, he will be remembered for his work in the Ramayan TV serial. Condolences to the families and admirers of both actors. Om Shanti.”
