New Delhi [India], Oct 3 (ANI): Actor-turned-politician Manoj Tiwari took to the acting stage again on Wednesday when he played the role of Parashurama at the Nav Shri Manav Dharm Ramlila in Model Town.
Parashurama, the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu in Hinduism is described in epics as the angry Brahmin who uses his axe to kill a large number of warriors because they abused their power.
Sporting a yellow dhoti, leopard-skin vest, Rudraksha beads bracelet and mala (necklace) the BJP MP delivered with aplomb a performance peppered with well-prepared dialogues, which kept the audience hooked.
"With time, I have learned the art to sing and dance and what could be better than using my learnings for a holy play Ramayana," he said.
Meanwhile, Bollywood actor Shahbaz Khan, who played Ravana said: "This is my favourite role. I have played Ravana's character in one of my shows. Ravana is one of the greatest villains of cinema."
Ahead of the nine days of Dusshera, a dramatic folk play Ramlila was organised to show the scene of the execution of Ravana by Lord Rama, which is hailed as a victory over evil. (ANI)
