Anand Sagar’s Ramayan holds a special place in our life. Especially this show’s rerun amid the lockdown was an unforgettable treat for everyone. Many people got a chance to experience it for the first time. That original show inspired many producers and makers to make a show of that sort, and Debina Bonnerjee and Gurmeet Choudhary’s Ramayan is one of them.
This show holds a special place in the lives of both because from that point, they started dating each other and went on to become a real-life couple. Recently, Debina interacted with a media channel and talked about her experience of working for such a remarkable show.
While recollecting memories, Debina said that it’s very difficult to summarize the show in words as ‘as every moment spent was memorable’. Debina said when she dressed like Sita Mata for the first time as a ‘vanvasi’, it was a priceless feeling for her. As they were filming outdoor and there were no vanity vans, she and Gurmeet faced many problems.
Talking about her command over Hindi, Debina said — ‘It took me a couple of months to get used to the language as we would speak in shudh Hindi and the character had a different kind of body language.’
Debina also revealed that as they filmed in real forest areas, they used to work for 16-17 hours a day to cover as much as possible. It was definitely taking a toll on them as they never worked for that long before. In the end, Debina said everything they did and the hard work they put for this show was worth and everyone is proud of this show.
