Actor Arun Govil, famously recognized for playing Lord Ram in Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan, revealed how he and his team were approached for a sensuous photoshoot, which was offered to them at a ‘hefty price’.
It was a time when Doordarshan telecasted the all-time greatest mythological series of Ramayana 33 years ago. Actor Arun Govil, best known for playing Lord Ram in Ramayan recently made a shocking revelation on The Kapil Sharma Show.
During the program, he revealed how the cast of Ramayan was offered huge amounts of money for sensuous photoshoots by magazines and that they refused them.
“While we were shooting for Ramayan, a lot of notable magazines approached me and the other cast members to do sensuous photoshoots for them. They were so desperate that they were ready to pay heavy amounts of money for it,” Arun Govil said.
Nevertheless, Mr. Govil added that the nature of the show is sentimental, the actors had a reputation to maintain and had to live up to the audience’s expectations.
“None of us accepted their offers and we believed that our audiences look up to and rest their faith in us. We could never take the chance of breaking their trust for money.”
Additionally, the 71-year-old opened up about this and working on Ramanand Sagar’s hit TV serial of the eighties during “The Kapil Sharma Show”. The actor was joined by his “Ramayan” co-stars Deepika Chikhalia, Sunil Lahri along with producer Subhash Sagar.
