Jai shree ram (sic).
The Ramayan TV show will air during the Ram Mandir inauguration. Adopting the slogan ‘Ab Har ghar hoga Ayodhya, har ghar mein prakat honge Ram,’ the channel strives to resonate with the nationwide sentiments associated with Lord Ram.

The trio became massively popular and were consciously aware of their public appearances as they were and still is regarded as Gods and Goddess in real life.
Arun Govil back then gave up smoking in public, Dipika, who played Goddess Sita, would wear sarees in public.
The actors Bal Dhuri and Jayshree Gadkar, who played the roles of Dashrath and Kaushalya were married in real life.
Another interesting trivia about Arvind Trivedi playing the role of Raavan.He went to audition for a role of a boatman and had rejected the role of Raavan when offered to him by Ramanand Sagar.
However, it was Bollywood actor Paresh Rawal, who convinced him to play the role of Raavan.
