In 2o20 too, the actor became prey of death hoax and his nephew Kaustubh Trivedi clarified the news by tweeting, “Dear all my uncle Arvind Trivedi lankesh is all good and safe. Stop spreading fake news it is request. Now please spread this. Thanks.”
Interestingly, in the last year, Sunil had shared a video, where he spoke about his apprehensions of Arvind playing Ravan and said, “I was a bit disappointed when I came to know that he has come for the role of Raavan. I wondered Raavan was such a mighty character, how would he justify the role. But I was so impressed when he came out in his costume and makeup, and was a totally contrast personality.” The show was written, produced and directed by Ramanand Sagar and was first aired on Doordarshan in 1987.
