Veteran TV actor Arun Govil, who used to play the role of Ram in most popular show Ramayan, took to Twitter to inform his fans about an imposter who has created a fake Twitter profile with his name and used the same profile picture to confuse everyone. The actor made the 'urgent appeal' to his fans to help him stop the impersonator after PM Narendra Modi mistakenly tagged the other profile while thanking Govil for his message on coronavirus.
In the video, Arun Govil asked his fans to report that fake Twitter handle and 'stop' it from operating. He started the video by asking his fans if they are watching and enjoying the re-runs of Ramayan on TV. Then he told them about the fake profile on twitter and requested his fans to 'ask the gentleman to not do this and stop him'. He also said that he is extremely hopeful that the fans will support him completely in this matter. Watch the video here-
Soon after the video surfaced on the internet, Arun Govil's fans flooded the social media with appeals to block the fake profile and also report it. The fake profile operates with the description, "Well known actor, played a role as Shri Ram of the great TV serial Ramayan." Fans also pointed out that there are various fake profiles by Arun Govil's name on Twitter.
