When Doordarshan decided to air Ramayan again during the lockdown, even they could not have imagined the immense love that the show will garner.
But the show, that brought family time back again, went on to become the world's most-watched show with a viewership of 7.7 crores.

I can't thank it enough. This serial is the main reason why I'm deeply connected to my ideology. Re-telecast of this serial is the best thing that happened in the lockdown. Thank you Cast, Thank you Ramanand Sagar and Thank You Doordarshan 🙏#ThankYouRamayan— Vikas Pandey (@MODIfiedVikas) May 2, 2020
Apart from Ramayan, Doordarshan also aired Mahabharat again.
