TV actor Arun Govil, popularly known for playing Lord Rama in Ramanand Sagar’s show Ramayana, 1987, has joined BJP at its Delhi office. This comes just days before the start of polls in four states and Union Territory Puducherry.

It is not clear if he would contest the elections as a BJP candidate, but it is expected that his presence will increase the party’s appeal to right-wing voters in the states where elections are due.   

Apart from Ramayan, Mr Govil, 63, has played the lead character in several Hindi, Bhojpuri, Odia and Telugu films and also played supporting characters in several films. He is, however, mostly known for his roles in mythological movies.

"Jai Shree Ram" is one of the slogans of the BJP in Bengal, where the party hopes to form its government for the first time. Thus, Govil’s face can turn positive for the BJP in attracting the voters. 

Written, produced and directed by Ramanand Sagar, the show Ramayana also starred Deepika Chikhalia and Sunil Lahri as Sita and Lakshman, first aired on Doordarshan in 1987 and quickly acquired a cult status among the audiences.  It was telecast in March 2020, after the nationwide lockdown was announced due to coronavirus.
