After receiving a warm response from the audience last year, the popular eighties series, Ramayan will premiere on television once again. The Ramanand Sagar show features Arun Govil as Ram along with Dipika Chikhlia as Sita, and Dara Singh as Hanuman. Dipika Chikhlia is too excited about the show’s return to the small screen.
