The re-telecast of epic mythological show Ramayan is garnering huge popularity amongst the audience. Within a few days, DD National has become the No. 1 Entertainment Channel in India. People aren’t just watching its daily episodes religiously every day, but the show has also become a trending topic of discussion. Social media is now filled with Ramayan inspired memes. And Laxman and Kumbhkaran are so far the favorite characters of memes.
Actor Sunil Lahri, who played the role of Laxman in Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan was asked about his reaction to the memes. He said, “I have seen many memes that a lot of people have sent. Even my brother’s children in the house send me the memes. I am liking it. I am enjoying it. It’s said that you are popular and that’s why they make these memes. I am honoured. I feel honoured to be a part of the memes.”

He was then asked that if given a chance, would he like to play Laxman again. To this, he answered, “Lakshman had a lot of shades to perform, as an actor. If you go to see any other character, it didn’t have that kind of performance. Maybe, Raavan but it’s a negative character. I am slightly uncomfortable at the moment because my face doesn’t permit me to play anything negative. I can play that character but I prefer not to. That’s why I prefer playing the same character and now I feel I can perform 10 times better because, at that time, I think I didn’t have experience. I didn’t have an idea of what reaction and action one should do. Now, with experience in the industry for such a long time, I feel, I can perform much better.”
