My Kids Don't Believe I’m On Screen In Ramayan: Swwapnil Joshi

The novel coronavirus has shaken the entire world, having a dastardly impact on everyone's lives. The Indian entertainment industry is no different! With mythological shows marking their comeback during the lockdown, the decision to re-run the shows that impacted everyone's childhoods, has been welcomed with open arms by viewers across the country. And, like so many others, actor Swwapnil Joshi has also taken to watching the re-runs of these shows. In fact, two of the actor's really popular shows, Uttar Ramayan and Shri Krishna are also making their way back into people's homes. Speaking on the re-runs of mythological shows, Swwapnil avers, “The lockdown takes a toll on the people and everyone needs their calm. Nothing calms you more than shows like Ramayan, Mahabharat and Shri Krishna.” Out of the three iconic shows, the actor par excellence has played pivotal lead roles in two of them; as Kush in Uttar Ramayan and Krishna of Shri Krishna. "There is nobody in the world who doesn't know about Lord Rama and Krishna.” Citing that these aren't mere shows and are a part of so many people's childhoods and culture, Swwapnil believes that, irrespective of caste or religion, Ramayana and Mahabharat are shows that every Indian has watched and enjoyed!
