Earlier, speaking about Ramayan, Dipika revealed to TOI, “By the time Uttar Ramayan stared, there were a lot of cases going on Ramanand Sagar. Most of the time he wasn’t available to direct the episodes but would send the script. He made Ramayan on how it was actually written and created his own. He didn’t include the folk stories on Ramayan. Hence, there were a few cases on him. His sons Moti and Anand Sagar directed the show.”
Speaking about shooting experience, she said, “I would stay in Umergaon for 28 days and I was also doing films in Bengal and South that time. In Uttar Ramayan, the glam quotient which you had seen in Ramayan, lessens. It becomes a simple story of Valmiki ji, Luv Kush, motherly love, kids’ education and all. It is a story of single mother. I think she is the first single mother in the history of Indian culture. It is very interesting. She leaves the palace when she was pregnant.”
The show will be replaced by Ramanand Sagar’s another show Shri Krishna. The show was first aired on Doordarshan’s Metro Channel in 1993 and later it was moved to DD National in 1996. It features actor Sarvadaman D Banerjee as adult Krishna while Swwapnil Joshi plays the teenage version of Krishna. It also stars Deepak Deulkar, Pinky Parikh among others.
