Last week when Doordarshan announced the re-run of Dayanand Sagar's Ramayan, the news turned into a delight for many Indians who are pushed indoors. After the netizens took the internet by storm, the channel also decided to re-run Mahabharat. Adding another popular serial to the re-run schedule, Byomkesh Bakshi and Circus will also mark its comeback on the TV screens.
As the shooting schedules for films, web-series, and serials are currently on hold, most of the channels started repeat telecast of their on-going shows. But interestingly, Doordarshan took the audience down to the memory lane as they announced the re-run of Ramayan and Mahabharat. Not only the two epic period-dramas, but it also announced to re-telecast Circus and Byomkesh Bakshi on DD National at 8 pm and 11 am respectively.
