Zee TV’s RAMAYAN: Gagan Malik, Neha Sargam to play Ram & Sita

Posted Fri, August 24, 2012 4:48pm IST

While Neil Bhatt, who shot to fame as Abhi in 12/24 Karol Bagh, will play the role of Lakshman

Actors Gagan Malik and Neha Sargam will be seen as Lord Rama and Sita in the latest, small-screen version of mythological epic Ramayan. The show is aired on Zee TV, and currently shows child versions of the characters. However, it will take a leap of time and will show the two actors in their roles starting Sunday, said a statement.

Gagan was earlier seen in shows like Pratha and Navya, while Neha is known for Punar Vivaah and Chand Chupa Badal Mein. Both of them are excited about their association with this big-ticket show, produced by Sagar Arts.

Gagan has done his homework to essay the role, and said, “Playing Ram, unlike any other character I have played so far, requires a great deal of preparation, be it in terms of reading up on the finer nuances of the Ramcharitmanas or studying and imbibing everything that Ram stood for.”

“As an actor, it will be my endeavour to get the body language, the demeanour, the tonal quality of my voice and the diction right,” he added.

The show’s leading lady, Neha is upbeat as she has childhood memories of her grandmother narrating the tales from the Ramayan. “She would tell us sisters about how each of us should strive to emulate Sita when we grow up. While I don’t know if I have been successful in emulating Sita’s virtues in my personal life, landing this role is the closest I will ever get to living out my granny’s dream for all of us,” said Neha.

Actor Neil Bhatt, who shot to fame as Abhi in 12/24 Karol Bagh, will play the role of Lakshman.

    OMG first time i looked at it today and they did a beautiful representation. they are both very talented.
    She plays the Sita role so perfect. And Raam’s acting had me amazed…. he had poise & so much love in his eyes….
    really good acting.
    and a really nice pair.
