Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan was first aired on Doordarshan in 1987 and attained a cult status. Years later, the show made a comeback during lockdown. Union Minister Prakash Javadekar, on Friday morning, had announced that the much-loved Indian mythological series, Ramayan is making a comeback on Doordarshan. Later in the day, it was also announced that DD Bharati is bringing back BR Chopra's much-acclaimed television show, Mahabharat to entertain people once again.
It seems like fans of the Mahabharata series want to go down the memory lane and enjoy these shows on TV. In his tweet, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar revealed that just like Ramayan, Mahabharat will also air twice daily, starting from Saturday, March 28.
Please tune in to @DDNational at 9 am & 9 pm to watch 'Ramayan' and @DDBharati at 12 noon and 7 pm to watch 'Mahabharat' today and everyday.#StayHomeStaySafe #IndiaFightsCorona@narendramodi @PIB_India @DDNewslive @DDNewsHindi— Prakash Javadekar (@PrakashJavdekar) March 28, 2020
