Were you born in the 1990s or before? Sundays were mostly spent in the front of the TV, with reverence in the eyes while watching much-loved serials. As kids, most of them would wait for the stories from mythology unfold on the small screen. Remember the saga of Mahabharata and Ramayan?
Sharing one such memoir from the yesteryear, @KiranKS posted a behind-the-scenes video from BR Chopra and Ravi Chopra’s Mahabharata. The cast’s tearful goodbye after the final cut melted many hearts online, as the actors couldn’t stop their tears from flowing after the last episode was shot. Even though it has been many years since the show went off-air, the memories are still etched in people’s minds.
“#MahaBharat – A TV serial that changed a generation of Indians. And this is how they said goodbye to each other after the final cut,” the 2.14-minute clip was captioned. No sooner was it uploaded on Twitter, it had collected more than 4,200 retweets and around 7,000 likes, at the time of writing.

Many Twitter users got “emotional” and “nostalgic” after watching the video and shared their thoughts on the micro-blogging website. Steal a glance at some reactions here.
Very emotional!! Just shows how much these actors got identified with the great personages they represented on the screen.

No dear….. They played their roles for so much long time that they don’t want to come out of it… As it would bring separation…

The guy who played Arjuns role was a Muslim by religion and he is crying his heart out in the video…… I will say our country has always been tolerant 👍👍

An unparalleled series. So authentic it inspired awe in an entire country. I dream of the day #Bollywood or Hollywood will borrow many of the magnificent stories in the Indian Puranas to make the most amazing cinematic epics #Mahabharata #movies
