Apart from Hema Malini, the film also stars Jitendra, Amjad Khan, Sujit Kumar, Om Shivpuri and Keshto Mukherjee. The 1979 film became a hit. After this, Prem Sagar told a story related to Arvind Trivedi in the TV show ‘Vikram Aur Betal’. Before playing the role of Ravana in ‘Ramayana’, Arvind Trivedi had played an important role in ‘Vikram aur Betal’. Arvind Trivedi was also tested for Ravana during the same serial.
Arvind Trivedi was a master of technology
Remembering that, Prem Sagar said, ‘We worked again in’ Vikram Aur Battle ‘. I contracted him for a technical role. He (Arvind Trivedi) told me that he would present the Havan scene in a special way. I thought he was talking like that, but in reality he was technically aware. During ‘Vikram aur Betal’ we tested him for the role of Ravana.

Prem Sagar said that Arvind Trivedi was the best ‘Ravan’ ever. No one else can play the way he portrayed Ravana. He was a great devotee of Lord Shiva and used to recite the entire Shiva Tandava hymn in Sanskrit. Prem Sagar said that he had brought Arvind Trivedi out of Gujarati theater. He was there under the shadow of brother Upendra Trivedi, who was a big star at the time.
