The re-run of Ramayan has not just freshened the memories of that era for those who watched the serial then, but also introduced the current generation to the religious text. That is evident in the manner in which the show has broken records to become the most-watched show on television at the moment. The actors who played the roles and who enjoyed humongous popularity then are once again witnessing similar fame with the success of the re-run.
The show’s Ram and Sita, Arun Govil and Dipika Chikhalia, have been receiving love from netizens as they enjoy the show. The duo has also been sharing anecdotes, throwback pictures and more from those days. One such interesting photo was posted by Dipika Chikhalia on Twitter recently.
In the ‘behind the camera’moment, director Ramanand Sagar is seen explaining the scene to his pratogonists, dressed in their get-ups, while reading from text itself.
While netizens had the usual reactions like terming the picture ‘beautiful’ and calling the duo the ‘best on-screen couple’, they also had some interesting observations. The main one was of the characters playing Lakshman, Bharat and Shatrughan standing behind them and watching the trio with intense focus.
Netizens spotted it and had a fun take over it. One quipped how they were ‘photobombing’, another wrote how they were worried about Ramanand Sagar planning another serial with his leads, a user was surprised about the ‘devars looking chupke chupke’, one were keen to know what ‘duvidha’ the brothers had.

Another observation was of how Ramanand Sagar sitting barefoot during the moment. The Twitteratti felt it displayed his down to earth nature.
