After 33 years, Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan returned on the small screen amid nationwide lockdown. It broke all viewing records on Doordarshan and is currently reairing on Star Plus.
Recently, the cast interacted with the media via an online press conference and revealed what went into the making of the legendary show that is still loved by the audience. Dipika spoke about how Ramanand Sagar was dealing with court cases since due to the show. She said, “Because of his respect for women, he took liberty in showing a few things. He told the government that he won't make Uttar Ramayan because he could not agree that a person like Ram can throw his wife out. He had clearly told them he will only do it till Ram Rajya and won't do after Uttar Kand. He didn't even call it Uttar Kand, he called it Uttar Ramayan."
"Ramanand Sagar left the decision with Sita whether to leave Ram or stay with him, and she left. So not only did he save Ram's image but also gave more power to Sita to take her own decisions in Uttar Ramayan. But, due to all this, he had to face court cases in Allahabad for 10 years," she said told the media.
