Hello, Swagatam, Namaskar to all!

You are here

at the Birthday celebration of a person who's better known as Shri Ram instead of his real name..
yes...off course, you got it correct!

a man with an angelic smile, a smile that captures the heart of millions, whose very personality and body language reminds us of Shri RamEmbarrassed
Before doing Ramayan, Arun Govil was a known name of Bollywood, as he did many successful movies with the most famous banner of its time, RAJSHRI PRODUCTIONS.
He gave superhit movies like Sawan Ko aane Do, Radha Aur Seeta, Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin, Jiyo To Aise Jiyo, Commander,, Shradhanjali, Ayyash and many more. Due to constant hit movies he was given a title 'GOLDEN BOY GOVIL', who turns a project reel in gold.LOL 
 Arun was already doing a movie with the Sagars named Badal, there they selected him for the role of Vikram, which was another benchmark in the history of Indian TV. Thereafter, Sagars were about to bring India's first mytho show ever- RAMAYAN, it was the most ambitious project in TV history, which was given a time slot of 45 mins, it was the only TV show to run for the longest time slot. He was first rejected for the role of Shri Ram, but later after taking the screen test of about 200-300 men, the selection team could not find a better person, to play Lord Ram, other than Arun because he had a perfect physic, features, body language for the role.
Moti Sagar says- 'I was the prime among the camera and technichal group, and I haven't seen a body, a fae so perfect as that of Arun. He was so photogenic, that we could not have found a better Ram'
His popularity was so immense, that people used to make temples of Arun Govil and they are still found and worshipped in some villages India, till now..isn't it interestingLOL

IMP Note
Arun Govil's birthday is on 12th of January,
