OTT platform MX Player has announced its new spiritual series Ramayuga. The first look of this show uses Hanuman Chalisa in Amitabh Bachchan's voice. The series is directed by Kunal Kohli.
Kunal Kohli has shared the first look on Instagram. Legendary tabla maestro Ustad Zahir Hussain and composer Rahul Sharma have also featured in this Hanuman Chalisa. Kunal Kohli announced the film in 2018, but now it will reach the audience in the form of a web series. In this series, new faces will be seen in the form of Ram and Sita. The series is written by Kamlesh Pandey, while the music is by Sajid-Wajid.
While sharing the first look in 2018, Kunal Kohli wrote that Ramayug is my next film. Your love, blessings, and support are needed. While announcing the film, Kunal had said that Veteran litterateur Narendra Kohli has been associated with the project as a consultant, so that the facts are not forgotten and the project is not disputed. Narendra Kohli has died recently. Ram Katha, composed by Narendra Kohli, holds a special place in the literary world. This story, written in seven volumes, covers the life of Lord Rama with a very logical basis.
On the small screen, Ramayana first brought Ramanand Sagar in the eighties, which still enjoys cult status. In this Ramayana, Ram was played by Arun Govil, while Sita had Deepika Chikhaliya in the role. At the same time, Sunil Lahiri played Laxman and Arvind Trivedi played the role of Ravana. Dara Singh was in the role of Hanuman. This Ramayana is very popular among the audience even today. Last year, when it was broadcast again on Doordarshan in the Corona Virus Lockdown, it created new records of TRPs.
