Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayana and B R Chopra’s Mahabharata addressed television screens in the late 1980s and mid-1990s. They were a delight to the audience and were widely enjoyed on Sundays.
Recently, the cast of Ramayana gathered at The Kapil Sharma Show to celebrate the 33rd anniversary of its broadcast. In the episode, Arun Govil (Ram), Dipika (Sita), and Sunil Lahri (Lakman) made several interesting revelations that kept the audience hooked.
