Roopal Tyagi meets Ryan Ryback

Mumbai, Oct 1 : It was an ecstatic moment for TV actress Roopal Tyagi aka Gunjan of Zee TV serial Sapne Suhane Ladakpan ke when she was invited by WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) to share the stage with wrestler Ryan Ryback recently.


Ryback on his visit to Mumbai was promoting anti-bullying and addressed an audience of 175 children and their parents at St. Andrews Auditorium in Mumbai.

Roopal Tyagi who has been lending her support as Gunjan to many causes like safety of women, eve teasing, allowing jeans in colleges in smaller towns in her show Sapne Suhane Ladakpan ke, took to the stage this time to speak about cyber bullying.

Said the actress, "Since the advent of social media, cyber bullying has become so rampant! I have been a victim of cyber bullying myself. I can totally understand the plight of kids who probably don't even realize that they are being bullied on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, various chat rooms etc.



"I am going through it right now. There are more than 100 fake IDs on my name on Twitter and Facebook. People are interacting with my fans and talking to them on my behalf, asking them to come and meet at so and so place."

The actress believes that the best way to avoid any kind of bullying is to talk to people whom we can trust, like our elders or parents.

Post the event she said she was over the moon to meet Ryback. "My brother and cousins are huge fans of his! They couldn't believe that I had actually met him. I had to send them pictures to make them trust me."

Said Ryback at the event, "The fans in India are very passionate and loyal. I can see it in their eyes when I come over. They don't get to see the WWE superstars in person on a regular basis.

"We were here in 2002 for some live events. The WWE is trying to arrange for another live event here. I would love to fight here (India)."
