Ayodhya, Oct 4, 2022- An artist playing the role of ‘Ravan’ in a Ramlila function in Uttar Pradesh’s Ayodhya district died on stage of cardiac arrest.

The 60-year-old artist, Patiram, was enacting the role of ‘Ravan’ during the episode of ‘Sita Haran’ in Aihar village of Ayodhya when he clutched his chest due to pain.

Before anybody could react, he collapsed on stage.

Doctors confirmed cardiac arrest to be the cause of his death.

Village Head, Puneet Kumar Sahu said that Patiram had been playing the role of Ravan for many years.
