Speaking about the show, Neeraj Vyas, Business Head - Sony Entertainment Television, Sony SAB, PAL, and Sony MAX Movie Cluster, said, “This is not just a show; it is our attempt to bring the essence of our rich heritage into the homes of millions and create a shared experience for families across the nation. The learnings of this distinctive epic are relevant even today and resonate across generations, emphasizing the importance of family values and the significance of relationships. As we embark on this divine journey with Swastik Productions, we are committed to crafting an authentic and immersive experience for the viewers.”

Siddharth Kumar Tewary, Founder of Swastik Productions and the Creator of Shrimad Ramayan continued, “Bringing one of the biggest epics to life is not just a creative endeavour but a profound responsibility. The launch of 'Shrimad Ramayan' signifies a commitment to quality storytelling with meticulous research and seamless execution. I am delighted to partner with Sony Entertainment Television and together, we look forward to the retelling of this timeless narrative that resonates deeply with viewers, fostering a renewed connection with our cultural heritage and values. I am thankful to amazing talent which is helping me create this – the star cast and the production crew which is working tirelessly on this mega project.”

Sujay Reu too shared, “When I discovered that I had been chosen to portray the role of Lord Ram, my initial reaction was pure joy—I was overwhelmed with a sense of excitement and happiness. I remember expressing gratitude to Lord Ram, believing that perhaps it was his blessing that had played a role in my selection. This entire journey has been unlike anything I've experienced before.” Prachi Bansal continued, “Such a great role comes with great responsibility, and I hope we can capture the enduring love, unwavering loyalty, and steadfast faith that Ram and Sita are revered for all in an aesthetically pleasing manner.”

Basant Bhatt, who will be essaying the role of Lakshman, expressed, “An embodiment of selfless service and sacrifice, Lakshman, the younger brother of Lord Ram is extremely loyal and fiercely protective, he always puts the safety of Lord Ram and Sita above his own. This is the biggest role of my career, and I can’t wait to usher in the new year with this show.” Nikitin Dheer revealed, “Portraying Raavan has been an exhilarating journey for me. The complexity of the character, his stories, and motivations, allow me to explore the depths of human emotion, and I couldn't be happier to bring Ravan to life on your television screens.”

Nirbhay Wadhwa, who will be playing Lord Hanuman, stated, “I have a divine connection with Lord Hanuman, and I am honored to have an opportunity to play this larger-than-life role again. Lord Hanuman is the greatest ever devotee of Lord Ram and this devotion is his greatest power, which I hope to portray on screen.” Whereas actor Aarav Chowdhury, who will be seen as King Dashrath, went on to add, “Known for his righteousness, wisdom, and devotion to duty, King Dashrath is a pivotal figure in the great epic and this show will put the spotlight on lesser-known facts of the Ayodhya King; I am delighted about essaying this role.”

Shilpa Saklani aka Queen Kaikeyi concluded, “Queen Kaikeyi is such an interesting figure in this story, we’ve always known of her as the reason behind the exile, but her generosity and bravery are also commendable. More so, the impact of Shrimad Ramayan goes beyond just entertainment, it promises to inspire viewers to embrace the teachings of Lord Ram in their own lives. The moral lessons, the timeless wisdom, and the enduring values depicted in the show will strike a chord with the audience, leaving a lasting impression on their hearts and minds.”
