Ever wondered who is the actor in Koombiyos CID police officers role? True, the actor is not familiar to most of the viewers. However, Vishwajith Gunasekara is not a stranger for stage drama and teledramas. He won The Best Actor Award at the Sumathi Tele Awards in 2013. But it was not the first time that he won thee best actor award; He was the best actor at the Raigam Tele Awards for his role in Rala Bidena Thana Teledrama.  Koombiyo is one of the all time best and popular Sinhala teledrama. Koobiyo has gathered a new audience for Sinhala teledrama. I thought it is worthy to share about this actor at this time. Vishwajith get initial exposure to acting when he was selected to Mrs. Somalatha Subasingha’s Drama Class back in 1995. Somalatha Subasingha’s Wikurthi stage drama was his first appearance in a play. He was introduced for teledrama by Ashoka Handagama.  Even though it was a main role in Handagama’s “Sudu Kalu Saha Mama” teledrama, it was never telecast. His second teledrama was Sathyajith Maitipe’s “Swarna Samapthiya” teledrama. The third teledram that he got was a nightmare for him. He had a very bad experience and it made him to be away from the filed for sometime. However, he again came back strong in Ananda Abeynayaka’s  “Jeewithayata Idadenna” drama. Vishwajith Gunasekara is also a English Lecturer at the Sri Lanka Institute of Development and Administration (SLIDA). He is a old boy of Ananda College – Colombo. He is originally from Maligathanna, Gampaha. Do you like this actor: Do you Know about Leftist Party Leader in “Koombiyo”? Our next article will be about him.

At the same time, Ranjeet was inertly trying to establish his roots as a devoted Indian Sikh dude while mingling into his new “Brit” culture among his foreign friends. Many who knew Mind Your Language sitcom, thought that the character of “Ranjeet Singh” was in fact a real Indian Sikh dude!
