Following the announcement by Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar that DD National will start airing Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan from tomorrow (28 March), demands have intensified for the network to also air Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s Chanakya and B R Chopra’s Mahabharat.

Following Javadekar’s announcement, Prasar Bharti CEO Shashi Shekhar announced that DD National will be airing more iconic content in the next few days.

While thanking the initiative to air Ramayan, many social media users also requested that other epics like Mahabharat and Chanakya also be aired on the network.

It is also expected that DD National may eventually also air B R Chopra’s Mahabharat as Shekhar had confirmed that the public broadcaster is in talks with the rights holders to re air the acclaimed TV series.
