It is also reported by some cinema theatre owners that fans had garlanded the cutout of Ranjan being displayed at these film halls.
This is a common phenomenon in Indian cinema halls, while it is a first in Sri Lanka.
However, there is also talk that these garlands are being placed on his effigies by his own supporters. But, when Sri Lanka Mirror inquired from him, Ranjan said he had no time to engage in such practices, adding that he would endure such insults and criticism as even Lord Buddha had to endure it.
Together with Ranjan, Ruwangi Ratnayake, Srimal Wedisinghe, Rex Koddippili, Sriyani Amarasena, Sarath Chandrasiri and many other film stars join the cast of ‘Doctor Nawariyan’.
