Undoubtedly, the re-telecast of Ramanand Sagar’s epic mythological show, Ramayan, has been garnering love from all over the world during the nationwide lockdown.

The actors and as well as the makers since then have been sharing interesting details about the show. Recently, Prem Sagar, son of director Ramanand Sagar, revealed the number of versions his father read before finalizing one.



Prem Sagar in his book, ‘An Epic Life: Ramanand Sagar: From Barsaat to Ramayan’, reveals that his father did extensive research before making the show, Ramayan. Well known for his ambitious film projects, Ramanand was shooting in 1967 in Switzerland and was sitting at a café discussing various aspects, when the talented filmmaker decided to make Ramayan and said, “My life’s mission is to bring to mankind the virtuous story of Maryada Purushottam Shri Ram.”

Ramanand Sagar then started in-depth research on structuring the storyline for Ramayan and spent hours reading religious texts. He successfully read 14 different versions of Ramayan before finalizing Valmiki’s Ramcharitmanas as the reference for the show.
