If you are an Indian kid with brown parents, there is no way that you have not heard the full story of Ramayana from your folks. Whether a bedtime tale or a classic movie adaptation, we know how popular this Hindu story is. Back in 2020, when the lockdown commenced, Indian television also started airing the Ramayana, which aired on the television in the 80s.

Later in the scenes, Queen Kaikeyi is going to demand Lord Ram’s father to send the Prince for a vanvaas in the forests for 14 years while her son Bharat rules the kingdom.
