In the 90s, Sunday morning meant seeing Ramanand Sagar’s ‘Ramayan’ on TV with family and friends. Everyone has different memories or experiences associated with this epic and the varied representations of this story – be it dance dramas, Ram-Lila or mythological shows / films that create a unique connection to this ancient literary text. The Upcoming Story of Kunal Kohli – MX Original Series ‘Ramyug’ tells the story of this prehistoric era for audiences young and old.
Mounted on a big screen and with its great graphics, the show has attracted a lot of interest from audiences across the country, even the original Ramayan cast, i.e. Arun Govil, Dipika Chikhlia Topiwala and Sunil Lahri are looking forward to the show on MX players.
Arun Govil added, “I really enjoyed seeing the Ramyug trailer from MX Player with its spectacular use of technology. It’s great to see one of my most popular characters, Ram, portrayed in this direction by Kunal Kohli in this day and age. So I’m all the more excited to see how this version offers a family experience again like the original did back then. ”
Dipika Chikhlia Topiwala commented, “I remember talking to a friend a few years ago about creating Ramayana in the new age, and Ramyug’s trailer seems to do the best it can. Living the life of Sita while we were shooting Ramanand Sagars Ramayan taught me strength and patience, but when I watch the trailer for Ramyug, I want to relive my character. I look forward to seeing the show on MX Player. ”
“Storytelling in the 80s / 90s meant spending a Sunday hour with family (friends, relatives, neighbors, and even unexpected strangers) in front of the television. That is the effect of our show – Ramayan. There is a lot of emotion associated with Ramayana, it was true then and it is still true today. Nobody could have imagined at the time that it would be possible to create the same show on such a large scale, which is made possible by such great images as in Ramyug by MX Player. I think we are having a breakthrough when it comes to modern storytelling of mythological sagas, ”added Sunil Lahri.
MX Original Series Ramyug is the first mythological web series to hit digital screens on May 6th. All episodes are streamed for free on MX Player only.
