Ramayan is being re-run on Doordarshan and people are enjoying the mythological show like never before. A few days ago, netizens made hilarious memes on Laxman. They were quite impressed with his angry young man look and compared him to Amitabh Bachchan. Sunil Lahri, who played the character of Laxman on the show, has now reacted to his memes. He said that he is liking and enjoying his memes.
Apparently, Sunil was supposed to play another character (Shatrughna) in Ramayan, but since the actor (Shashi Puri), who was supposed to play the role of Laxman, backed out, Sunil got to play the role.
It has to be recalled that Ramayan received record-breaking TRPs and Doordarshan became the most watched channel. Regarding the TRPs, Sunil told the portal, "It was expected. I was sure about it because I have been getting the response on social media. There was a demand for that the programme should be re-telecast. Also, I think people who have seen the show earlier, they have spoken so much about it to their family members and the younger generation. There was a lot of curiosity among the youngsters and the audience who have not seen it earlier. So they wanted to see what was the craze and was so great about this programme. Ultimately, it's the content, the sentiments of the show and the feeling is so strong, that has worked. It's a really good sign that good content always work among the audience."
