“Ramayan” is back on Zee TV in a new avatar
In a move that hopes to bring back the good old days, Zee TV is all set to showcase Ramayan, India’s most widely viewed mythological series. Sukesh Motwani, Head, Fiction Programming, Zee TV says, “Ramayan is a way of life that our future generations must carry on as their biggest legacy. So, in bringing Ramayan back, we have a twin objective. To foster the concept of the whole family TV viewing experience and to reach out to an entire generation of youngsters who have unfortunately not had the privilege of growing up watching Ramayan.”
Motwani added, “We have roped in the only team in India truly equipped for the task…the Sagars. Ramanand ji did it brilliantly once and Motiji (Sagar) and Minakshi, who have inherited ‘Ramayan’ as a part of their core DNA, are all set to recreate the classic.”
While the casting has not been frozen, prominent actors like Aditya Redij, Avinash Sachdev and Amir Dalvi have been approached to play Ram, and Sanjeeda Sheikh, Suhasi Dhami and Rubina Dilaik have been auditioned for the role of Sita.
