“Ek Second Ek Second” or “Hamare team ka hai” is something no one ever thought of ever hearing while watching the highly religious re-enactment of Hindu epic Ramayan, the Ramlila.
But, actor and politician, Manoj Tiwari, who is playing the character of “Angad”, used English words like “second” and “team”, while having an onstage dialogue with Ravana.
Ramlila is the dramatic folk re-enactment of the life of Rama according to the ancient Hindu epic Ramayana, one of the holiest Hindu religious text.
This mistake by Manoj Tiwari has subjected him to face a lot of trolls as well as criticism.
