Keeping in mind the lockdown, Doordarshan recently announced that it will televise the iconic TV serial Ramayana for the viewers again.
This was something received very well by people, who are in for something more.
In a tweet posted earlier today, Doordarshan said that it will also air Shah Rukh Khan starrer Circus on the channel.

Watch your favorite TV Series from 1989 #Circus tonight at 8 pm on @DDNational
We know you are already in for the #21DaysChallenge
So here is one more reason to #StayHomeIndia #SRK #SRKians pic.twitter.com/0ELrsNZAaP
The show will air from today onwards and is being pitched as another reason to #stayathome.
For those who might not know, Circus, along with Fauji, was Shah Rukh's claim to fame before he started appearing in movies. Both the serials were critically acclaimed and made SRK a household name in the early 90s.
@iamsrk Shahrukh's 1st TV appearance. The show will be aired at 8 PM from today on @DDNational's National channel. The lives of circus artists as they go about their daily routines surviving the twists and turns life throws at them. @AshGowariker @renukash @MakrandOfficial— Chirag (@ChiragSelarka) March 28, 2020

Good move by Doordarshan to recast Ramayan, Mahabharat, Circus and Byomkesh Bakshi. Thanks to DD. It would be better if Chandrakanta and Shaktimaan telecast too.— Deepak Kumar Singh (@deepak30681) March 28, 2020
