Expressing his excitement upon being invited, he believes it's because of his karma and the deeds of his past life.

The actor joyfully went ahead and took a trip down memory lane to recount his childhood memories of participating in 'Ram Bhajans' back in his village, where bhajans would play all day and all night long. He expressed the surreal feeling of standing in the same place as the birthplace of Lord Ram, stating how he thought such an experience was not on the cards for him, not at least up until a few years ago. 

Reacting to questions about his sentiments toward Ayodhya as a city, he expressed that there's this profound sense of divinity and an indescribable energy that one can only feel, not see. He went on to say that the spirit and happiness was evident in the eyes of the people present there, and emphasized on the overwhelming excitement and joy that's hovering over the city. He believes that people's wishes and prayers are finally coming true after a prolonged period of almost 500 years with the consecration of the temple.
