Significantly, the Ramayana is being re-broadcasted from March 28 on special demand of the public. This is not the first time Ramayana has made a new record. When the telecast was first televised, the show also produced several records of fame and after 33 years history has been repeated once again.
The show of 78 episodes is based on the Ramayana Valmiki Ramayana and Ramcharitmanas composed by Tulsidas. From 1987 to 1988, the Ramayana was the most watched show in the world. As of 2003, the show was named in the Limca Book of World Records in The Most Watched Mythological Serial in the World.
Please tell that Ramanand Sagar’s ‘Ramayan’ (Ramayan) had established such a charisma during the time of Prasaram, which is still discussed today. During this serial, people used to sit in front of the TV and the roads and streets used to be deserted. Many people used to watch the show with folded hands due to reverence. People worshiped artists like Arun Govil (Ram), Deepika (Sita) who worked in serial. Dara Singh played Hanuman in this serial.
