Here is the video of the same.
The video has left netizens touched by his humble nature. Most praised the actor for his amazing acting skills.
My God! He is affected and emotional. It’s like he’s repenting for Rāvanā’s sins. So touching.— ThudLifePoetess?? (@SongSungSoftly) April 12, 2020

Arvind trivedi means- akoham dvitiyo naasti, na bhooto na bhavishyati ?— Hemant rulaniya (@HRulaniya) April 12, 2020
Wow! It’s so difficult to recognize him… 33 years have passed. Can’t imagine anyone else as Ravana. He had played the role of ‘Trishanku’ as well.— Sadhavi Khosla?? (@sadhavi) April 12, 2020
Some put their soul into acting. He is old and vulnerable and he might be thinking that he was hurting Sita ji that’s why he seeks for forgiveness may be.— Vintage at heart!? (@countrygal_mum) April 12, 2020
He used to work in Cable Corporation Of India, Borivali(E) where my father used to work. He was a gentlemen. Great personality ??????— Vinayak Mulgund (@vinayakmulsoft) April 13, 2020
He acted so well that even he couldn’t face himself as Ravan.. Ravan me jaan bhar di thi sirji ne. His Gujarati roles too were equally good.— Turmeric (@The_Turmeric_) April 12, 2020
This is really very humbling ! His acting was notch above than the rest , the dialogue delivery expression and body language , was brilliant ! Only a veteran and highly skilled theater artists can perform such way! He made Ravana ‘ Enigmatic and Unforgettable! God bless Arvindji— Bhalchandra (@BHALCHANDRA11) April 13, 2020
