Arun Govil told an anecdote of that time that when he was shooting, he used to smoke cigarettes a lot. He said, I went to a corner and put a chair behind the curtain and was smoking a cigarette quietly when some people came and started shouting loudly in South Indian language. Then I called a man associated with the shooting and said that I feel that these men are abusing me, can you tell what these people are saying. Then he says that you are right that these people are abusing you that we consider you God and you do such things’. After this Arun Govil also told that after that day he never smoked cigarette.

Arun Govil told that during Ramayana he had received many offers to earn money. He was offered by many magazines that you stand on the cover of the magazine with a glass, of course there is water in it, but he did not do so. Considering the role of Ram as a responsibility, he discharged it. Arun Govil had told that he had become so famous by playing the role of Ram that the producers could not approach me for any other role. The producers felt that the public would not like to see me in a commercial film. Not only this, due to the character of Ram, it became difficult for him to roam freely.
