Ramayan has been one of the best things in this otherwise grim lockdown. The show was loved by many and the decision to air it again proved to be great. Sunil Lahri aka Laxman has spoken about an interesting anecdote while shooting with Dara Singh aka Hanuman. He took to instragram and said, “In one of the sequences, Hanuman was supposed to hug Laxman but I was wearing a back gear that would hurt Dara Singh jee whenever he tried to hug me. Later, he got a hack. When he hugged me he held the back gear which then refrained from piercing into his skin.”
Furthermore, Sunil added, “I remember shooting a difficult scene wherein Ram and Laxman were supposed to sit on Hanuman’s shoulders. We shot the sequence with Croma effect and while filming it, I wasn’t aware of what exactly to do and how it will look on screen. We simply followed Sagar sir’s instruction and I was amazed to see the end result. It looked quite convincingly real.”
In an interview to us, Sunil spoke about the Ramayan memes on social media. “I feel it takes immense creativity to make memes. And it is fine as long as they’re not humiliating for an actor or his family. Also, these memes have got the attention of the younger lot. I admire the sense of humour of these people and have no issues,”
He added that he is game for new projects. “I want to take on more work but good work. There is a certain standard you have to maintain after you live a character like Lakshman,” he says. Would he do a reality show like Bigg Boss? “I have watched that show. I don’t mind taking it up but on my conditions. Anyways, we are living in a Bigg Boss like condition now,” he says.
