New Delhi:

Bajrangi Bhaijan actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui on Friday took to twitter to express his disappointed after his Ramlila performance was cancelled following opposition by a religious group on Thursday.  

The actor, however, seems to be taking the unfortunate turn of events in stride as he hopes to fulfil his ‘childhood dream’ next year. 

“My childhood dream could not come true, but will definitely be a part of Ramleela next year, ” Siddiqui tweeted. 

The actor had on Wednesday announced that he would play the character of ‘Maricha’ in the programme. However, following protests by Shiv Sena, the programme was cancelled. 

Maricha is a rakshasa (demon), who is killed by Rama. His most notable exploit is his role in the kidnapping of Sita, Rama’s wife.

The Ramlila program featuring Nawazuddin at Budhana town has been cancelled over opposition by some Hindu activists, SP (rural) Rakesh Jolly said.

The organisers had to cancel the programme after the activists approached them and expressed their displeasure over Nawazuddin’s participation, he added.
