However, this time around, his co-star from the iconic television show, Sunil Lahri, aka Laxman, as well as Dipika Chikhlia, who essayed the role of Sita, quashed the rumours with social media posts.Ramayan is an Indian mythological television series based on the epic of the same name that aired between 1987 and 1988 on Doordarshan, catapulting the actors who essayed the various mythical characters to instant fame and reverence. Top amidst these were Arun Govil, who played Rama, Deepika Chikhalia, who essayed Sita, Sunil Lahiri as Lakshman and Dara Singh as Hanuman.
