#ArvindTrivedi through the eyes of a producer, director & cinematographer, Mr. Prem Sagar, Author of book, #AnEpicLifeRamanandSagar Image 1. Arvind Trivedi with Hira bhai, art director of Ramayan. Image 2. With MP @dipika, Arvind Trivedi was elected as a Member of Parliament. Arvind bhai was a producer’s man. He was a one-take artist and disciplined to the core. The assistant never had to wait outside his makeup room, as he was ever ready to shoot. Never heckled for price or a rise after the television show became a hit. . Arvind bhai was a director’s delight. He bought out nuances which were in the directors mind and added from his side to the character. His acting skill were polished due to innovation and out-of-his-experience as a radio artist. I remember we used to go to Bhawan’s auditorium to see his #Gujratiplays As the evil, corrupt yogi in the television serial, #Vikramaurbetaal which I directed, the mannerism were his contribution. He knew as a star the audience will accept mannerism portrayed by the actor. For example his method of offering “Ahuti” to the “havan”, as a director I reacted since he would lift his hand and throw the items into the sacred fire, instead of offering it as an oblation with Bhakti. After telecast of #Doordarshan with highest TRP’s and greatly appreciated by the audience, I realised Arvind bhai was right. Just that one action portrayed his ego and pride as a tantric yogi. I saluted him in silence. . He was an actor more than a star though having reigned the Gujrati cinema with over 100 films, multiple theatre and radio plays. At times it seamed as if he was under the shadow of his elder brother #upendratrivedi who was the super star of Gujarati cinema, but with the portrayal of #Ravan he overshadowed him. For me he was a dear and true friend. I enjoyed working with him in my maiden directorial film #Humtereashiquehai, and my maiden television serial Vikram and Betaal. #RamayanOnDDNational #Ramayan #ramanandsagar #retelecast #bollywood #indiancinema #indiantelevision #ravanstory #ravana #lankaraja #ramayana #hinduculture #hinduism #ramsita #siyaram #sitaram #shiva #vishnu #lanka #sanatandharma #sagarworld

Arun said, "While we were shooting for Ramayan, a lot of renowned magazines approached me and the other cast members to do sensuous photoshoots for them. They were so desperate that they were ready to pay hefty amounts of money for it. But none of us accepted their offers and we believed that our audiences' look up to and rest their faith in us. We could never take the chance of breaking their trust for money."
