As we all know, Ramanand Sagar’s renowned TV show Ramayan is immortal and still has a special place in our hearts. The mythological drama was re-broadcasted during the covid making the country relive the golden days of Ramanand’s masterpiece. Through the TV series, actors Arun Govil and Dipika Chikhlia who played the character of Ram and Sita in it became household names.
As the show ended back in 1988, the duo was never seen again sharing the screen.
Now, 35 years later, Arun and Dipika are all set to feature in a film together. They will be seen in Pradeep Gupta’s directorial Notice. The film is reportedly a modern-day adaptation of Ramayana.
The public image of both of the flabbergasting veteran actors will be sensitively handled and will remain pious as always perceived.
Producer Aditya Pratap Singh Raghuvanshi told,
“It is the story of a vulnerable man who fights for the truth, and his victory against the corrupt administration. Many stories evolve from the Ramayana and Mahabharat.
