Facts About Ramayan created by Ramanand Sagar

Telecast in 55 countries, Ramayan garnered a staggering viewership of around 650 million, solidifying its global appeal.

The show's popularity led to three extensions, totaling 78 episodes instead of the initially planned 52. Adding a personal touch to the narrative, Bal Dhuri and Jayshree Gadkar, who portrayed Dashratha and Kaushalya, were married in real life.

The emotional resonance of Ramayan was so profound that even after its conclusion with Ram's coronation, a special Luv-Kush episode was filmed.

Upon its re-airing, Ramayan created history by recording the highest ratings for a Hindi general entertainment channel show since 2015.

The making of Ramayan was no small feat, with the shoot spanning over 550 days. Sanjay Jog, who portrayed Bharat, was initially approached for Laxman's role but eventually played Bharat due to the extensive shooting schedule.

The series continues to be a timeless masterpiece, bridging generations and leaving an everlasting imprint on the cultural tapestry of the nation.

As the return of Ramayan is announced, fans are much more excited to witness the epic mythological drama on TV screens.
