New Delhi: The repetition of the 80s cult show “Ramayan” made everyone very, very happy. After the last episode aired on television over the weekend, Twitter was full of posts claiming the episodes were edited or edited. Netizens pointed out that two important scenes – when Ravan met his brother Ahiravan and Diksha from Ravan to Laxman – were not broadcast, and the other reason that made people twitter was that the show ended quickly.
When Twitter asked for clarification, Shashi Shekhar, CEO of Prasar Bharati, replied in kind. He tweeted and said, “There were no cuts, they weren’t part of the original production.”
He added: “The beauty of our epics are the many stories, side stories and interpretations. Not every nuance can possibly make it into a single television script, but it may leave the door open for future productions. “

The re-broadcast of Ramanand Sagar’s “Ramayan” ended on Sunday when Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya after 14 years in exile with Sita and Lakshman. The final episode aired on Sunday for 2 hours.
“Ramayan” featured Arun Govil as Ram, Dipika Chikhlia Topiwala as Sita and Sunil Lahri as Lakshman. There was a comeback on television after Doordarshan (DD) decided, due to the coronavirus crisis, to broadcast some old, first-class programs for viewers.
The slots for “Ramayan” have now been taken over by “Uttar Ramayan”.
