Adipurush and Ramayan
The announcement for the rerun comes at a time when Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan is being compared to the new film Adipurush. Touted to be based on the Hindu epic Ramayana, Adipurush has been widely criticised for wrongly portraying the lead characters Ram, Sita, Hanuman and Ravan. Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, Devdatta Nage, and Saif Ali Khan play the respective roles in the film which released earlier this month.
Ramayan back on TV
Sharing a short clip from the TV show, the channel posted on its social media pages: “World famous mythological serial Ramayan is back for all the fans and our audience. Watch it from July 3, 7.30pm, on your favourite channel Shemaroo TV).” The post also shared the channel number for various digital TV service providers.
