DD National has announced the serial that would be replacing the outgoing show ‘Ramayan’, the final episode of which has already been telecast. With the shooting of TV serials stopped due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, DD National had earlier initiated the re-telecast of a few classic serials.
TRP on the rise
Ever Since Doordarshan decided to re-telecast Ramayan and Mahabharat, the TRP of the channel has taken a steep rise. Now, with Ramayan done, it was interesting to find out the next plan of Doordarshan. The national channel has taken an obvious route in search of the serial that would replace Ramayan.
‘Luv Kush’ to replace ‘Ramayan’ on DD National
An adaption of the last book, the Uttara Kanda, of the ancient epic Ramayan, Luv Kush was broadcasted in the year 1988. This show was made by Ramanand Sagar, the creator of Ramayan.
Many of the characters in the serial Ramayan continue to portray their roles in this show too. The serial ‘Luv Kush’ was originally known as ‘Uttara Ramayan’.
