Arvind Trivedi, who played the role of Raavan in Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan, became an unlikely victim of a death hoax recently. His co-star, Sunil Lahri, who played Lakshman on the show, recently took to social media to quash those death rumours. Sharing a picture with Arvind, Sunil asked everyone not to spread fake news in such stressful times.
Sharing photos of Arvind Trivedi, Sunil Lahri wrote, « Aajkal Koi Na Koi Buri Khabar sunane Ko milati Hai carona ki vajah se, Upar Se Arvind Trivedi ji (Ravan) ki khabar na failaye … I request those who are spreading fake news to stop. With God’s mercy, Arvind Ji is fine. I pray for his healthy life) (sic). » The actor even shared a picture of Arvind in his Raavan avatar.
This is not the first time that Arvind Trivedi has become a victim of a death hoax. Last year as well, similar news started to spread on social media. That time, his nephew, Kaustubh Trivedi, took to his Twitter account to say that his uncle was alive. He wrote, « Dear all my uncle Arvind Trivedi lankesh is all good and safe. Stop spreading fake news it is request. Now please spread this. Thanks (sic). »
