Amid 'Adipurush' Controversy, Ramanand Sagar's 'Ramayan' To Air Again On TV From Next Week

Amid Adipurush flak, Ramanand Sagar's Ramayan to air again on TV from next week



The 40-year-old TV series Ramayan, which is based on the Hindu epic of the same name, will be re-aired on Shemaroo TV from July 3. The show, which was first telecasted in 1987-1988 on Doordarshan, features Arun Govil as Ram, Dipika Chikhlia as Sita, Sunil Lahiri as Lakshman and Arvind Trivedi as Ravan. The show is widely regarded as a classic and has a loyal fan base across generations.

The announcement for the rerun comes at a time when another adaptation of Ramayana, titled Adipurush, has been facing severe backlash from the audience and critics for its poor VFX and dialogues. The film, which released on June 16, stars Prabhas as Ram, Kriti Sanon as Sita, Devdatta Nage as Hanuman and Saif Ali Khan as Ravan. The film is directed by Om Raut and co-written by Manoj Muntashir Shukla.

Many viewers have expressed their displeasure over the film's portrayal of the characters and the events of the epic. Some of the dialogues that have been criticised include 'marega bete', 'bua ka bagicha hain kya' and 'jalegi tere baap ki'. Some have also accused the film of distorting the original story and hurting the sentiments of the devotees.

In response to the flak, the makers of Adipurush have decided to revise some of the dialogues from the film and release them in theatres soon. They have issued a statement saying that they value the input of the public and the audience and are committed to respecting their sentiments. Manoj Muntashir Shukla, who wrote over 4000 lines for the film, also penned a note on Twitter saying that he can give countless arguments in favour of his dialogues, but that will not reduce the pain of those who are hurt. He said that he and the producer-director of the film have decided to revisit some of the dialogues that are hurting them.

Meanwhile, fans of Ramanand Sagar's Ramayan have welcomed the news of its rerun and have expressed their excitement on social media. They have praised the show for its authenticity, simplicity and devotion. They have also compared it favourably to Adipurush and said that it is perfect for curing the 'virus' of Adipurush. Some have also requested Shemaroo TV to air other shows by Ramanand Sagar such as Shri Krishna and Vishnu Puran.

Ramanand Sagar's Ramayan was one of the most popular shows on Indian television when it was first aired. It had a viewership of over 100 million people and created a record for being the most-watched mythological series in the world. It was also re-telecasted during the lockdown in 2020 due to public demand and broke several records for its high ratings.

Ramanand Sagar's son Prem Sagar has also reacted to Adipurush and questioned how Manoj Muntashir Shukla conceived such dialogues. He told ANI that he does not understand how he even thought that the younger generation would like it. He said that if they are making Ramayan then they cannot hurt the sentiments of the people and suggested them to give it any other name or make it a fantasy film.
