Twitterati Demands Rajamouli to make Film on RamayanMay 10, 2020 03:47 PM
Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan TV serial telecast in the late 1980s made the entire nation glued to the small screen across the nation. Especially, in those days there was no cable TV and Doordarshan used to be the only channel available for everyone to watch. This serial which used to be aired on Sundays before noon literally used to bring the nation to stand still with no traffic on the roads.
During the present Corona Virus lockdown period, the serial is making headlines once again. Doordarshan is re-telecasting the movie since March when the lockdown was announced and to the surprise of many, the TRPs are sky high for this three-decade back serial. As per the reports, it has become the world’s most viewed entertainment program on television with a viewership of 77 million.
On the other hand, Bahubali director SS Rajamouli once expressed his ambition of making Mahabharat into a movie in parts. However, there is no talk from his end off late and he is busy with RRR. But, the Twitterati started demanding him to make Ramayan instead. The #RajamouliMakeRamayanhashtag which started recently is presently trending in the top position. Requests are floating in asking Rajamouli to consider making a movie based on the epic.
Going with the TRPs, Ramayan seems to work out even as a movie if it is made with a huge star cast and on a large scale with international standards. The reaction of Rajamouli on making this film is not known yet, but any maker who wishes to make it with much grandeur using the latest technique, it can be a decent watch on the big screen for the present generation.
However, the fans are super confident that there is no one better than Rajamouli who could do perfect justice to the mythological epic. At the same time few netizens are even suggesting actors for the prominent roles in the film. Especially when it comes to playing Rama, several are opining that Jr NTR must do the role, while few others are pitching for Prabhas too. Requests are also flooding on twitter asking SSR to take up this project to sketch his name in history like RamanandSagar and ArunGovil.
