Gurmeet Choudhary, who rose to fame with his earnest portrayal of Lord Ram in the popular television serial, Ramayan, seems to be in no mood to enact any other mythological character on the small screen.

Interestingly, the talented actor who has been recently approached by the makers of two upcoming mega mythological shows to play two different roles has turned down the offer.

A source says, "Gurmeet was recently offered to play the mythological character of Vali from Ramayan for a separate series that is being made for his character. He was also offered to play Arjuna from Mahabharata but he rejected it."

"Lord Ram's character made Gurmeet a household name and the actor admits that people still remembers him for that. Usually, actors get typecast after playing such characters and Gurmeet doesn't regret rejecting both the characters."

He says, "It was a great opportunity and an honour to play Lord Ram on screen which people still remembers and call me Ram wherever I go. I'm glad that image of mine is still popular. Since I've played the biggest mythological character on screen, it will be very difficult for people to accept me as any other mythological character."
