UNFORGETTABLE_FACE_OF_RAMAYAN : Shyam Sundar Kalani as Sugriva and Vali


Until this hour I never knew that the characters of Sugriva and Vali were performed by one man and he was Shyam Sundar Kalani. Sad to say, he passed away ten days back but due to lock-down this sad demise was mourned today by Arun Govil and Sunil Lahari in their twitter account. He was suffering from cancer for long time. Kalani’s film life never took off but he shall always be known for his dual role as Sugriva and Vali.



Sugriva with his vanar sena had aided Rama in bringing back Sita from the hands of Ravana. This help was in response of getting back his wife Ruma who was taken away by his brother Vali following the conflict between the two brothers. Rama kills Vali and Sugriva is made King and also get backs his wife.
