Another interesting anecdote during the shooting of ‘Ramayana’- Ramanand Sagar was very upset at the time of ‘Ramayana’. He had to shoot a scene but could not understand how to shoot this scene. Actually, the scene was such that Lord Shri Ram, the incarnation of Vishnu, was sitting in the palace of Dasaratha in the form of a child, crying and eating bread and calling out to his mother. When Kagbhusundi ji (in the form of a crow) standing near Dasaratha’s palace sees the child, she thinks how this small child can be God? He goes to that boy to know the truth and snatches the bread to test him.
Prem Sagar told in the interview that at that time the shooting of ‘Ramayana’ was being done in the studio of Vrindavan. Although many crows used to come there in the evening as soon as the sun set, but Ramanand Sagar could not understand how to get these crows to act. Eventually, he hired the entire unit. Told everyone to catch crows. Somehow, by 12 o’clock in the night, 4 crows were caught. But, before the shooting in the morning, three crows ran away.
Only one crow was left. Papa got upset. He didn’t understand how to shoot? Next week this episode was to be sent to Doordarshan for telecast. In such a situation, they could not delay even for a day. Then suddenly they don’t know what they thought. He got up and got everything ready from the lights to the camera. He also made the child sit at the place and then said with all his heart, “Call Kagbhusundi ji.”
A person from the unit brought the crow. The crow was making so much noise that the whole studio was buzzing. But, when Papa ji went to the crow and greeted him spiritually, then he became calm. Papa ji said, “Hey Kagbhusundi ji, I am in trouble. You help me. Episode to go next week. Crores of people will watch.” Saying this, Papaji opened his chain and stood behind the camera. Surprised when the crows started doing all those things, Papaji started telling him.
