Dusshera seems to have come earlier than usual this year. With Dussehra comes the joy of watching Ramlila on stage. Ramlila has always held a special place in actor Arun Mandola’s heart, but this year is extra special for him. The actor, who was last seen in Sankat Mochan Mahabali Hanuman, is part of the prestigious Luv Kush Ramlila, which is organised at Red Fort in Delhi. The Luv kush Ramleela is one of the oldest Ramlilas of India and has been taking place for the last 40 years at Red Fort.
The actor has memories associated with the Luv Kush Ramlila. “I’m born and brought up in Delhi. I remember how people used to talk about Red Fort’s Ramlila’. I am so happy to be part of it. This will be my first experience on stage but I am not nervous because I have been waiting for this to happen since so long. When your dreams come true, you can’t help giving your best,” he says, adding, “I have always been extremely excited to watch Ramlila, right from my childhood. I always wanted to be part of it, but never got the chance. I have never imagined that someday, I will get to be part of the Luv Kush Ramlila.”
The rest of the star cast is superb, says Arun. “My co-actors are part of Bollywood and have been there since my childhood. I feel lucky to have got the chance to act with them. I am getting a fabulous response and am elated to be part of it.
