Actor Gurmeet Choudhary became a household name with his portrayal of Lord Ram in the TV show Ramayan that aired in 2008. However, that is not the only connection that the actor has with the name Ram. The actor's father's name is Sitaram and his wife, actor Debina Bonnerjee's mum's name is Shabri. The village he was born in is Jairampur. Gurmeet Choudhary got married to his 'Ramayan' co-star Debina Bonnerjee who played the role of Sita on the TV show.

Meanwhile, as the country gears up for the Ram Mandir inauguration on Monday in Ayodhya, the actor expressed his joy in seeing the city readying itself for the celebration. "I go for physical training at 4.30 am daily. On the way. I see so many posters of Ram ji. I think this is the kind of celebration that must have happened when he returned to Ayodhya back in the day. Aisi hi vibe rahi hogi. Jab main ghar se nikalta hoon aaj kal, log good morning ki jagah Ram Ram bolte hain," Gurmeet said in an interview with Hindustan Times. 

Choudhary visited the Ram Mandir construction site two years ago and donated too. Ask him about the amount he donated, and the actor says, "Iss baare mein naa baat karein toh achcha hai. Some things should not be talked about as a lot of belief is attached. I feel lucky that I got to do that and also play Ram in the show when I was just 24."

When Gurmeet was asked if he plans on visiting the temple anytime soon after the inauguration, he said, "Jaise hi time milta hai, we will visit within a week. The last time Debina and I visited the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, we had prayed for our two children."

On 15 February 2011, actor Gurmeet Choudhary married actress Debina Bonnerjee.They welcomed their first baby in April 2022 and their second baby in November 2022. 

Gurmeet made his Bollywood debut with the psychological thriller and horror, ‘Khamoshiyan’, and has also worked in several TV shows. He is known for his portrayal of Rama in ‘Ramayana’, and also acted in ‘Geet – Hui Sabse Parayi’, ‘Punar Vivaah – Zindagi Milegi Dobara’, and also emerged as the winner of ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5’.

Gurmeet also appeared in music videos like Jubin Nautiyal’s ‘Pehli Baarish Mein’. This love song, sung by Jubin Nautiyal and written by Gurpreet Saini and Gautam G Sharma, captures the season’s essence. The music video, directed by Video Brains and composed by Rochak Kohli, beautifully depicts the magic of love amidst rain-soaked surroundings.
