“These shows are historical. I have grown up watching these shows and they have helped me gain a different kind of perspective in life, a basic ideology about life. So, when you telecast these kinds of shows, firstly people will work on their Hindi and secondly, they will understand our culture, the kind of ideology we share from our ancient times. They will also understand the thought process of Ram and Krishna. I think today’s generation can really benefit from these shows,” says the actor, who is part of television show Pyar Ki Luka Chuppi.
Rahul, who hails from Rajasthan, and then moved to Mumbai to become an actor, did shows like Ek Rishta Aisa Bhi and Teri Meri Love Stories. “I am not sure how much the younger generation will connect with these shows though. I feel if we expose our children to these kinds of shows, it will be great for their mental health. It will create a good impact on them,” he says.
Rahul, however, is happy to watch the re-telecast of the cult shows amid the nationwide lockdown due to coronavirus. “I am happy that I am getting to relive my memories. I remember how I used to spend my days watching Ramayan, Mahabharat, and Circus,” says the
Mitegi Laxman Rekha actor.
