The historic Ramanand Sagar’s ‘Ramayana’ is being re-telecasted on Doordarshan and since then it has broken all the TRP records. Currently, Doordarshan has become the most-watched channel in India.
These days, not only ‘Ramayana’, but its lost artists have also become the stars of social media. People have known a lot about the actors who played the characters of Ram, Sita, Laxman, Hanuman, Ravana, Sugriva and Shurpanakha. But the story of ‘Ramayana’ is incomplete without Luv-Kush.
In Ramanand Sagar’s ‘Uttar Ramayana’, Luv and Kush were two important characters. But among the legendary actors who played the role of Ram, Sita and Laxman, we have forgotten the actors who played the characters of Luv-Kush.
In ‘Uttar Ramayan’, Mayuresh Shetramde played the character of Luv while Swapnil Joshi played Kush. Like the rest of the Ramayana cast, these two actors have also grown up.
So let’s know where these two artists are these days?
