Since DD National brought back the iconic Ramanand Sagar's Ramayan to national television the show has once again broken many records. It has reaffirmed the faith of many and introduced newer generations to the famous Indian mythology. Tv actor Gurmeet Choudhary has also banked on this and expressed his desire to play Lord Ram in any future film version of Ramayana.
Speaking to IANS Choudary admitted that he would love to play Lord Ram in a film. He said, "I'd definitely like to do (a mythology project) if I like it. The audience saw me as TV's Ram, but I'd really like to do a film called 'Ramayan', and I'd like this film to reach all over the world."
Speaking about Ramanand Sagar's original Ramayana that brought the Indian mythos to television for the first time the actor recalled, "When I was very young, I had watched Ramanand Sagar's 'Ramayan'. But I remembered very less about it. As I grew up, my dad would narrate stories of 'Ramayan'. So story-wise I knew it. When finally 'Ramayan' was given to me, I had a thought that before doing another 'Ramayan' if I watch the 80s 'Ramayan' then as an actor...Arunji had acted really well. Had I seen his version of Ram again then there might have been chances of me copying him. Every actor can understand that he needs to do his own style, so I tried to act in my own style."
Before lockdown began Gurmeet was shooting for an upcoming film project. The project is currently on hold and will resume work once normalcy returns to Mumbai.
