Prime Minister Narendra Modi had congratulated actor Arun Govil, who essayed the character of ‘Shri Ram’ in the show. The prime minister also appreciated Arun Govil for participating in #9baje9minute on Twitter but he tagged him @RealArunGovil, which was the fake account.
Arun Govil shared a video on his official Twitter account, where he urged his fans to report the fake account as he said, “I hope that you are watching Ramayan and have been enjoying it as always. A gentleman has created a Twitter profile with the moniker ‘RealArunGovil’ which is not real. In reality, my real account is ‘arungovil12.’ I request you all to ask the gentleman to not do this and stop him. I am extremely hopeful that I’ll have your full support in this matter.”
