Now the statement has come from this television.
What did Prasar Bharati CEO Shashi Shekhar say?
Live Mint contacted Prasar Bharati CEO Shashi Shekhar for clarification on all these confusions. Asked him on which Binah was asked to make a world record, Shashi replied and wrote – we know that a lot of people have seen this show even outside the sports with TV ratings. Mobile TV services, which come with DD channels such as Jio TV and MX Player, through them.
“If we add all these figures and talk about the viewership of Ramayana, then it has been seen by 200 million or more than 200 million people during the lockdown. I will not fall for the record, but during lockdown, a lot of families came together to watch this epic again. Broadcasting service did its work in an effective manner in keeping people safe at home.
What is the dispute?
Actually, Doordarshan’s claim is false as per Live Mint’s claim. According to the report, the last episode of the American series MASH was watched by more than 106 million people. According to this, Ramayana is not the most watched show in the world. This episode of Mash was aired on 28 February 1983.
