OG Sita Dipika Chikhlia On Adipurush Row: “Ramayana Is Not For Leisure”


The Ramayana shouldn’t be for entertainment and filmmakers ought to keep away from arising with new iterations each few years, says actor Dipika Chikhlia, who grew to become well-known for her position as Goddess Sita in Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan 36 years in the past. Wading into the controversy over Adipurush, the movie directed by Om Raut and fronted by Prabhas and Kriti Sanon, she stated any type of deviance from the Hindu epic will encounter criticism. “Every time it will come again on display screen, be it for TV or movie, it will have one thing which goes to harm individuals as a result of you aren’t going to make a reproduction of the Ramayana that we made,” Chikhlia instructed PTI.

Adipurush a lavish multilingual retelling of the Ramayana, has come below assault for its dialogue, colloquial language and illustration of some characters from the much-loved mythological epic. As consideration once more targeted on numerous variations of the Ramayana – animated, small display screen and massive — Chikhlia shared a video of hers dressed as Sita in a hark again to the position that made her a family title in India of the late 80s.

“This submit is on public demand. I’m grateful for the love I’ve at all times obtained for the position I performed… Me… As sitaji… Could not have requested for extra,” she captioned the clip on her official Instagram account.

According to her, each filmmaker has their perspective they usually need to make one thing totally different.

“(But) what actually pains me is why are we continuously attempting to make Ramayana yearly or two years. Ramayana shouldn’t be (for) entertainment worth; it’s one thing that you just study from. It is a guide which is being handed all the way down to us by generations and that is what our ‘sanskars’ (values) are all about,” she stated.

Chikhlia, 58, hasn’t watched Adipurush and, given the unfavourable buzz, is unlikely to take action.

“Possibly that additionally clouded my judgment… I’m shooting round the clock, so time is an enormous constraint for me. So, once I truly watch it, (then) I’ll presumably be in a greater state of mind to speak about Adipurush,” she stated with out divulging any particulars about her future initiatives.

“At this level, I’ve nothing to share. People are coming to me about it, the scenes and every part, and lots of people from the press too, however I’ve no clue about it (the movie),” Chikhlia, who joined politics after the success of the present and have become BJP MP FROM Baroda in 1991, stated. Recalling the 1987 Doordarshan serial, she stated the goal was by no means to earn cash.

“It was telecast on Doordarshan, and what sort of cash does Doordarshan offer you, even to actors and makers? So that Ramayan was not made for cash.

“That must be defined to people who Ramayana is one thing you worship, you worship Lord Ram and Hanuman. These should not your American superhero type of a factor. These are individuals, who we glance as much as. They are a part of our historical past, they’re our ancestors and we now have to study from their life as a result of there may be numerous ‘seekh’ in that,” she added.

All the actors on Ramayan did a very good job of portraying their characters with utmost honesty, which is without doubt one of the explanation why viewers adore the present even right now,” Chikhlia stated.

The collection featured Arun Govil as Lord Ram, Sunil Lahri as Lakshman with late actors Dara Singh and Arvind Trivedi essaying the roles of Hanuman and Ravana, respectively.

Chikhlia stated it isn’t attainable to recreate the magic of their present “as the times and the times have been totally different”.

“Whatever little physique of labor I’ve accomplished, like 50 to 60 movies Hindi and regional put collectively, individuals nonetheless love me as ‘Sita’, every part else has been washed off as a result of I appeared convincing as Sita to individuals,” Chikhlia, who has featured in movies akin to Bala and Natsamrat, stated.
