Well Sagar arts was with a new show on Zee TV...
Here is an article abt it
a move that hopes to bring back the good old days when the entire
family used to lounge together in the living room, hooked on to
television, India's most widely viewed mythological series, Ramayan is all set to come back and enthrall the audiences in its yet new avatar.
Sukesh Motwani, head of fiction programming said, "Ramayan
is a way of life that our future generations must carry on as their
biggest legacy and as a story, it is timeless and will never lose its
relevance. It is rich in the core values, ideals and principles that
form the crux of Indian culture and upbringing. So, in bringing Ramayan
we have a twin objective. First is to foster the concept of the whole
family, right from grandma and grandpa to the baby in the house,
engaging in a joint TV viewing experience. And our other equally
important agenda is to reach out to an entire generation of youngsters
who have unfortunately not had the privilege of growing up watching Ramayan
like the rest of us have." Ramayan
will be an absolute recreation of the original classic. Based on
Valmiki's ancient religious epic of the same name, it will thrive on
authenticity of representation. Confident of recreating the aura and the
nostalgia of the original classic, Motwani said, "We have roped in the
only team in India truly equipped for the task and if anyone can make
the magic of Ramayan
come alive, it is the Sagars. Ramanand ji (Sagar) did it brilliantly once and Moti Ji & Minakshi, who have inherited Ramayan
as a part of their core DNA, are all set to recreate the classic."
While the casting has not been frozen, prominent actors are being considered for the roles of Ram
. While actors Aditya Redij, Avinash Sachdev and Amir Dalvi
have been approached to play Ram, Sanjeeda Sheikh
, Suhasi Dhami and Rubina Dilaik
have been auditioned for the role of Sita. It remains to be seen which
of them will make history on Indian television as Ram and Sita!
