'If given a chance…': Sunil Lahri, Dipika Chikhlia reveal what alternate role they would like to play in Ramayan
New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: The Doordarshan brought back the legendary show Ramayan last month and the show broke all the viewership records across the world as it garnered a traffic of 7.7 crores. The show’s actors, who received much praises for their roles, have now again come into the limelight.
Recently, Sunil Lahri and Dipika Chikhlia, who played the character of Lakshman and Sita respectively, have revealed that what role they would like to play if another Ramayan is prepared. During an open media interaction via video chat, Sunil, who wonderfully played the role of Lakshman, said that he would love to take up the role of Raavan.
“I prefer doing Lakshman, if Lakshman is not an option for me, I will definitely like to do Raavan,” The Hindustan Times quoted Sunil Lahri as saying. Sunil further said that playing a role depends on an actor’s quality and belief.
Meanwhile, Dipika said that she would like to play the character role of Kaikeyi, Ram’s step-mother. “If today somebody would have offered me, I would have possibly done Kaikeyi, this is how much we have changed as actors (laughs). As an actor, it is exactly opposite playing a negative role. If I have to play a role, I will like to try playing a role where I have a dimension, where I can explore myself as a creative person,” she said, as quoted by The Hindustan Times.
“I see myself as a lot more than just that. It’s time where I take a leap where work is concerned. We have given 33 years, each one of us. It’s time for us to extend our boundaries,” Deepika said while claiming that everyone would like to see her playing the role of Sita.
Ramayan was reaired on Doordarshan during this coronavirus lockdown and it broke many viewership records across the world which includes setting the record for the most watched TV show ever.
