Commencing June 2nd, NDTV Imagine’s Ramayan presents the start of a hugely significant chapter, as Ravan the demon king of Lanka makes his first appearance on the epic show. While Lord Ram and Sita are getting accustomed to their life in the jungles during the 14 year Vanvaas, a situation arises wherein Ravan makes his entry in the guise of a hermit asking for alms, and Sita crosses the 'Lakshman Rekha' resulting in Ravan abducting her.
The well-known actor Akhilendra Mishra will essay the role of Ravan. The actor has played a variety of characters in both television as well as bollywood, but the role that gave him name and fame was Kroor Singh crooning his favorite dialogue ‘Yakku’. He was also seen in various movies like Lagaan and Ganga Jal.
So, as the actor returns to television in one of the most famous roles and in one of the biggest epics, we sure hope the audience appreciates this new persona of his.
Don't miss the beginning of this momentous stage of the Ramayan starting June 2nd, 2008 at 9:30 p.m. only on NDTV IMAGINE.
