Ajay Bhalwankar, Head- Content, Hindi GECs, ZEE said, "Some shows, by sheer virtue of their content, deserve to be made available to every single Indian. Ramayan is a way of life that our future generations must carry on as their biggest legacy. So, with a view to ensuring that we maximize its reach, we have made the show available on Doordarshan at the same time slot of 11 am every Sunday. By showcasing Ramayan on a Sunday morning, we wish to engage the entire family, right from grandparents to the child in the house, in a joint TV viewing experience."

A timeless classic based on Tulsidas' Ramcharitmanas, Ramayan will be a grand recreation of the original epic and will thrive on authenticity of representation. Commenting on the production quality of the show, Ajay Bhalwankar said, "We have roped in the only team in India truly equipped for the task … If anyone can make the magic of Ramayan come alive, it is the Sagars. Moti ji, Amrit and Meenakshi Sagar are all set to recreate the classic."

Neil Bhatt, who played the lead in Zee TV's 12/24 Karol Bagh, will be seen as the devoted brother Lakshman while Shikha Swaroop, the former beauty queen-turned-actress will reveal shades of grey as Kaikeyi. Actor Rishabh Shukla will step into the shoes of King Dashrath, Lord Rama's father.

Ramayan premieres on Zee TV and will simulcast on Doordarshan at 11 am every Sunday, starting from 12 August.






Not long ago NDTV Imagine had managed to impress the television audience with Ramayan.It was based on Valmiki’s Ramayan and Tulsidas’s Ramcharitmanas, as well as Chakbasta’s Urdu Ramayan, and was produced by Sagar Arts. This mythological show in particular has always tasted success and produced stars overnight. The first version had Arun Govil, Deepika and Dara Singh and the second starred Gurmeet Choudhary and Debina Bonnerjee. So what does Zee TV has in store for the Television Audience? Who will be the cast of this new show?

Well we have some information about that. Gagan Malik and actress Neha Sargam (seen in Punar Vivah) will play the main role of Ram and Sita. Rishabh, who is most known for his role of King Shantanu in ‘Mahabharat‘ and was last seen in ‘Baat Hamari Pakki Hai‘ will play the role of Raja Dashrath while Sunita Rajwar, last seen in ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai‘ will be seen as Manthra in ‘Ramayan’. Shikha Swaroop, who was last seen in ‘Chandrakanta’, is returning to the small screen after 12 years to play Kaikayee in the latest version of mythological show ‘Ramayan’. Neelima Parandekar will play the role of Kaushalya, Lord Ram’s mother.



Some believe that the New Ramayan could be a best approach to give moral values to coming generation and make them acknowledge of Epic Ramayan. So when Zee TV is planning to launch the show? Well, the show will be a weekly and most probably will be aired on Sunday mornings at 11:00 from Sunday 12th August. So are you ready to go back in time and sit with your entire family and watch Ramayan?Do let us know about your views about this third attempt to bring Ramayan back.
Happy Viewing!

Ramayan's Promo's

Sunday mornings will never be the same again! In an exciting revival of the once-popular phenomenon of Sunday morning TV viewing for the whole family, ZEE TV, India's leading Hindi General Entertainment Channel (GEC), will premiere the country's most revered mythological series, Ramayan, at 11 AM.











A timeless classic based on Tulsidas' Ramcharitmanas, Ramayan shows viewers a way of life … it is rich in the core values, ideals and principles that form the crux of Indian culture and upbringing. Centuries after the original epic was first written, its relevance in contemporary times remains unquestioned. The jet-setting, smartphone-toting denizens of the Twitter age can benefit immensely from applying its learnings to their lives!

Ajay Bhalwankar, Head- Content, Hindi GECs at ZEE said, "Ramayan is a way of life that our future generations must carry on as their biggest legacy … The characters Rama, Sita, Lakshman, Bharat, Hanuman and Ravan are all fundamental to the cultural consciousness of India. They are the embodiments of concepts such as the ideal father, wife, king, servant and brother. The show, like the religious epic it is based on, explores the subtleties of the delicate relationships within one's family. By showcasing Ramayan on a Sunday morning, we wish to engage the entire family, right from grandparents to the baby in the house, in a joint TV viewing experience."

ZEE TV's Ramayan will be a grand recreation of the original epic and will thrive on authenticity of representation. Speaking of the production quality of the show, Ajay Bhalwankar said, "We have roped in the only team in India truly equipped for the task … if anyone can make the magic of Ramayan come alive, it is the Sagars. Moti ji, Amrit and Meenakshi Sagar are all set to recreate the classic."


Neil Bhatt, who played the lead in ZEE TV's 12/24 Karol Bagh, will be seen as the devoted brother Lakshman while Shikha Swaroop, the former beauty queen-turned-actress will reveal shades of grey as Kaikeyee. Actor Rishabh Shukla will step into the shoes of King Dashrath, Lord Rama's father.

Shikha Swaroop said, "I am excited about my role of Kaikeyi. I think essaying a warrior queen with shades of grey calls for an air of regality, poise that comes only with power, strength of character and a stern, steely body language. As a former beauty pageant winner and a model, I have, over the years, imbibed the art of composing my body language to suit any role I play. I will enjoy playing such an iconic mythological character and hope to add my own charm and individuality to it."

Neil Bhatt added, "I am told I was cast because I had the lean, athletic physicality required for the role. What I also hear is that Ramayan on ZEE TV will not have archaic Hindi in the dialogue. The language will be kept simple and lucid. This will aid us as actors in connecting better with our audiences as you can emote with better conviction when you feel the lines!"

In a most unique innovation in the digital space, ZEE TV is all set to create a virtual temple on its official website that will let devotees perform an online aarti at the click and drag of a mouse. Ramayan will also have interactive apps on social networking websites to ensure a good connect with the younger demographics.
