Actor Sunil Lahiri, who reached the peak of popularity by playing Laxman in Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayana, shares interesting things through his social media posts. Tells things from his life experiences to working in films and TV serials. Share photos too. Sunil’s users like his style very much and comment a lot on his posts. Now Sunil has shared a fun fact, which is quite old in Hindi cinema.
Actually, in the film, when an actress was paired with an actor who was younger in age, she was given a moustache, so that the age gap could be reduced or ended. At that time cinema was not that technologically advanced, so the whole game was done with make-up. Today anything is possible through VFX. Sunil shared this fact along with a picture. He wrote – This was also a strange trend and is, if you are working with an actor older than you, then pairing with a mustache has been done. Old picture with famous actress Kajal Kiran of her time.
Let us tell you, Sunil Lahiri’s age is three years less than Kajal. Kajal Kiran made her debut in the film Hum Kisise Se Kum Nahi in 1977 and remained active till the late 80s. His last film is Aakhri Sangharsh, which released after retirement in 1997.
The Ramayana, which aired on Doordarshan for the first time in the eighties, gained tremendous popularity. In this show, Arun Govil played the role of Ram and Dipika Chikhlia played the role of Sita. Ramayan was re-telecasted last year during the first lockdown, which got record viewership. After this broadcast, all the main actors of Ramayana had once again come into the limelight and their social media following had also increased tremendously.
