Now, Sunil Lahri, who played the role of Lakshman in the show, has revealed some interesting anecdotes from the show. There was an incident in which director Ramanand Sagar got angry. Sunil posted a video on instagram and said that there was an episode in which Guru Vashisht was teaching Ram, Lakshman, Bharat and Shatrughan. Sunil revealed that there was a camera placed behind them and in front of Guru Vashisht. Just to have some fun, Sunil, Arun and others were making faces to make Sudhir Dalvi laugh. Sudhir was playing Guru’s character. He started laughing and the scene had to be shot multiple times. Ramanand Sagar lost his cool and asked Sudhir why he was laughing. He covered up and said that his long beard was giving him a tickling sensation. That’s how Sunil, Arun and others were saved from the wrath of Ramanand Sagar.

Deepika Chikhalia aka Sita: ‘I don’t know why people keep making Ramayan. Every year they come up with a new Ramayan’

The rerun of mythological show, Ramayan shattered many records and grabbed the top spot in the BARC list. In fact, it even beat Game Of Thrones and Friends to set a new benchmark. Talking about this success, actress Deepika Chikhalia, who played the character of Sita in the serial, told PinkVilla, “When it was aired at that time, there were a lot of weird people who would come up and laugh about it, and would say how funny it was. People would laugh that it is just going on and would come up and tell me that ‘my mother-in-law is a fan, my grandparents are a fan.’ They were ashamed to admit that they were my fan. There was this discrimination. But, today I feel the millennials are taking it so well. The generation today is sensitive and sensible. They are learning. I think full credits to them for giving it respect and understanding. I feel it is genuinely something you can learn from. It is not entertainment, take it as a learning.” Also Read – Uttar Ramayan: When Ramanand Sagar couldn’t direct the initial episodes of the TV show — find out!

When she was told that actor Sunil Lahri said the retelecast is a bigger success for them, Deepika replied, “It is genuinely a success because all this while people just called us Bhagwan, God. They just made us into a god. But, the millennials said they are not god, they are superb actors, they have performed so well, that’s why they look like real people to you. I think the difference between good performances and not just being considered God is there and I feel so good, very respectful that I performed, and people noticed it. This re-run was so required for us as actors for getting our dues.” Also Read – #UttarRamayanfinale: Fans thank late Ramanand Sagar for the moving epic ⁠— read tweets

“I don’t know why people keep making Ramayan. Every year they come up with a new Ramayan. I think people should stop that. I keep wondering why do you try? When you have something already, why try to replicate? The narration, the performances, the simplicity, everything is missing,” she added.

Talking about the royalty debate, she quoted, “We don’t have it. I have been talking about it to people that I think they should have given us royalty because it is not just about us doing Ramayan, it is about putting 30 more years of our career to keep Ramayan alive even today. I think they should have given it, I don’t know how it works here. I think Govt should intervene and give it to us. They should start with Ramayan. We have contributed a larger chunk to it, if it wasn’t us, you wouldn’t see the Ramayan it is today. So, they should share royalty with us.”
