New Delhi/ IBNS: More than three decades of its telecast on Doordarshan, Ramanand Sagar's Ramayan managed to create the same magic, emerging as the "most watched entertainment show in the world."

A recent tweet by Doordarshan said on April 16 the mega-serial was viewed by 7.7 crore people.

"Rebroadcast of Ramayana on Doordarshan smashes viewership records worldwide, the show becomes most watched entertainment show in the world with 7.7 crore viewers on 16th of April," read the tweet.

Written, produced and directed by Ramanand Sagar, the serial had Arun Govil, Dipika Chikhlia Topiwala, Sunil Lahiri as Lord Ram, Sita and Lakshman, respectively. Other leads were Lalita Pawar as Manthra, Dara Singh as Hanuman, and Arvind Trivedi as Ravana.

The government decided to air the famous show in March after it clamped nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of novel coronavirus which confined the people across the country in their homes.

Reminiscing her time with the cast and crew of the legendary show, Dipika Chikhlia Topiwala shared a picture on social media which went viral in minutes.

Ramayana hit the TV screens in 1987, telecasted every week on Sunday.
