The actress came into limelight after the re-run of Ramanand Sagar's Ramayana on Doordarshan, as its viewership broke all the records in the world with a traffic of 7.7 crores. DD National took to twitter to inform about this achievement on April 16.
Recently, Dipika Chikhlia shared her work experience as playing the role of Sita. “Of course, it was very different because he came from the era of Raj Kapoor and had worked with people of that caliber. It’s that level of intelligence, dedication, understanding of the medium, it makes a lot of difference when you work with such great minds. He was phenomenal in his work and his understanding of the subject was very, very good,” she told The Hindustan Times in an interview.
Dipika also spoke about the roles that she has done and of the ones she wanted to do. After Ramayana, Dipika was recently seen in Ayushmann Khurana's Bala. She also spoke about her desire to play the role of Asha Devi, Nirbhaya's mother, in one of the series based on the Delhi Gang Rape.
“It is a very important role to play, these kinds of roles don’t come every day. I would love to do something like this once the lockdown is over. When I am no more, my body of work shouldn’t only be Ramayan, it should be much more. The movies I have done in Kannada or in Bengal, all of them have broken records. I should have a good body of work in the Hindi cinema apart from Ramayan. It is important for me to do that, for my own satisfaction that I lived the legacy of Ramayan,” she said.
