Mumbai/Bhubaneswar: Actor Arvind Trivedi, who played the popular character of Ravan in Ramanand Sagar’s mythological TV show Ramayan, passed away, last night. He was 82.
Trivedi died of heart attack and organ failure, family sources said. The last rites will take place at Dahanukarwadi crematorium, Kandivali West, Mumbai.
Trivedi became popular by immortalising the Ravan character of Ramayan serial, which also starred Arun Govil, Dipika Chikhlia and Sunil Lahiri as Ram, Sita and Lakshman, respectively.
The show ran from January 1987 to July 1988. The show regained popularity after it was aired on Doordarshan during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.
Last year, a video of him watching the Ramayan scene where Ravan kidnaps Sita, went viral on social media.
