Happy Ram Navami! Today, Indians across the globe are celebrating the birth of Lord Rama, one of the most popularly revered deities in Hinduism, also known as the seventh avatar of Lord Vishnu. On this occasion, Sony LIV has a surprise for the streamer’s fans and viewers. Today, one of the most popular Hindi television series, Shrimad Ramayan, will be aired for one hour instead of just half an hour. The series, as the name suggests, is based on the Hindu mythological epic Ramayana.

As seen in the promotional video of the special episode, Lord Rama along with Lord Lakshmana, Lord Hanuman, and King Sugreva will guide and motivate their army to prepare themselves for a battle against the demon Ravana. Ravana is accused of kidnapping Lord Rama’s wife, Goddess Sita. At first, the army will begin finding out where Goddess Sita would be kept in captivity. After the search operation, the army will inform Lord Rama about the Goddess’ whereabouts and will then think about their next plan of action.

The show stars actor Sujay Reu as Lord Rama and actress Prachi Bansal as Goddess Sita. Actor Basant Bhatt is essaying the role of Lord Lakshmana in the series. The mythological drama premiered on January 1, 2024, on Sony LIV and Sony Entertainment Television.
