Jackie had reached Ayodhya with a plant in his hands as usual. It’s not clear to whom he gave the plant or placed it in the temple premises. Speaking to ANI, Jackie said, “I have received the blessing…I feel great that I was called. Whenever I was given the role of an inspector, my name was Ram.”

Vivek had shared several glimpses of his Ayodhya visit on his Instagram Stories. He had reached the temple with singer Sonu Nigam. He also shared selfies with Anupam Kher, Kangana Ranaut and Kumar Vishwas whom he met at the temple.
Sharing his feelings on the Ram Mandir event, Vivek also told ANI, “Lord Ram made me emotional. His (Ram Lalla) form is beautiful. The sculpting is so good. I feel that Lord Ram came within the sculpture…I was very emotional and I sought blessings for everyone in the family.”
Vivek, who came to the city for the first time, said that the political section may have an issue but the common man is happy and enthusiastic. He said as per ANI, “I have come to Ayodhya for the first time and it feels that if you breathe here, ‘Ram Bhakti’ will get in you. There is so much energy in here. People are so happy. There is a wave of ‘bhakti’ here and there is a lot of curiosity among people that Ram Lalla is returning to Ayodhya after 500 years. I think Lord Ram has always connected people and society.”
