The return of the classic show Ramayan on Doordarshan has been the talk of the town for quite some time now.

In 2008, it was recreated with Gurmeet Choudhary and Debina Bonnerjee portraying the roles of Ram and Seeta. In a recent interview with an entertainment portal, Gurmeet Choudhary and Debina Bonnerjee spoke about their wish regarding their 2008 Ramayan. They said that their Ramayan was also from the makers of the original one which is the original creator Ramanand Sagar’s son, Anand Sagar. They spoke about how they would watch the old version of the show when they were kids but were of the opinion that the present generation grew up watching the 2008 version of the show. Gurmeet Choudhary and Debina Bonnerjee also spoke about being given the CDs of the original Ramayan show when they were shooting for it. The two actors also agreed that since the show was aired on NDTV Imagine which is no longer a channel, its re-run is not in the hands of the makers.
