Ramanand Sagar had made a complete of 78 episodes of this serial based mostly on Valmiki’s Ramayana and Tulsidas’ Ramcharitmanas.
For the primary time within the nation, the serial was initially broadcast from January 25, 1987, to July 31, 1988. Then, each Sunday, at 9.30 a.m. the present was aired on TV.
From 1987 to 1988, ‘Ramayan’ turned the most-watched serial on the planet. Until June 2003, it remained recorded within the Limca E book of Data as “the most-watched mythological serial in the world”.
Apparently, when the serial began airing within the nation for the primary time, individuals used to stay glued to the TV units. Since there have been much less TVs at residence then, the general public used to assemble at some neighbour’s place to observe ‘Ramayan’.
In the meantime, after the completion of mythological serial “Ramayan”, Doordarshan has now introduced again “Uttar Ramayan.”
Additionally initially aired within the late eighties, the serial was a follow-up to “Ramayan”, that includes largely the identical solid.
This present focussed on Rama’s coronation, and his kids — the twins Luv and Kush.
Whereas Mayuresh Kshetramade performed Luv, Swwapnil Joshi essayed the character of Kush within the present.
“This to me is the most profound character I played to date and it is my first character interestingly. I have very few memories as I was all of 9 then when I played that role but I am all set to remember those good old days of shooting,” stated Swwapnil.
“I remember I had a great time and everyone on the set, be it Arun (Govil) sir who played Shri Rama, Deepika Ji (Chikhalia) who played Sita Maiyaa and Sunil (Lahri) sir who played Lakshman Ji took care of me and we all had a great time. We worked as a family back then. Can’t wait to relive and see that on the screen,” he added.
