Actor Arvind Trivedi known for essaying the role of Raavan in Ramayan, passed away 5th October night following a heart attack. Arvind’s Ramayan co-star Sunil Lahiri shared the sad news of passing away of the legendary actor by posting his picture “Bahut dukhad Samachar hai ki Hamare Sabke Pyare Arvind bhai (Ravan of Ramayan) Ab Hamare bich Nahin Rahe Bhagwan Unki Atma ko Shanti De (This is a very sad news. Our dear Arvind Bhai is no longer with us. May God bring peace to his soul). I am speechless I lost father figure my guide well-wisher and gentleman,” he captioned the picture.
The 82 year old was reportedly unwell and was even unable to walk. “Uncle was unwell for past few years. Things only worsened over the past three years. He had to be admitted to the hospital a few times,” Arvind’s nephew Kaustubh Trivedi was quoted saying.
He added, “He had come back from the hospital only last month. On Tuesday night, he suffered a heart attack around 9:30. He died at his Kandivali residence in Mumbai”.
Earlier this year, a fake rumour about Arvind’s death had circulated. Lahiri had then confirmed that he was fine. He shared a pic and wrote in May 2021, “Nowadays, we are inundated with bad news because of the Covid-19 pandemic, and this time, it was fake news about Arvind Trivedi ji (Raavan). I request those who are spreading such false rumours to refrain from doing so… By God’s grace, Arvind ji is fine and I pray that God always keeps him healthy.”
