Bikaner: A 61-year-old man playing Hanumana in a 'Ramleela' died while climbing down a rope during the act at Lunkaransar, police said on Tuesday.

Dhanna Ram fell on the stage from a height of 10 feet and died on the spot last night, they said.

He was enacting the part from the Ramayana where Hanumana brings 'Sanjeevani Booti'.

Ram was a known local artiste and had been playing Hanumana's role for the last 40 years, police said.
