‘Ramayan’s Sita aka Dipika Chikhlia aspires to play Nirbhaya’s mother Asha Devi on silver screen
Dipika Chikhlia made her way into the audience’s heart with her portrayal of Sita in Ramanand Sagar’s ‘Ramayan’. The actress recently revealed that she wishes to portray the role of Nirbhaya’s mother Asha Devi on the silver screen as she wants to inspire all the woman out there.
Speaking to Navbharat Times, Dipika revealed her wish to portray Nirbhaya’s mother on the silver screen. “I still get shivers down my spine when I think about the Nirbhaya incident. It took seven years to get the justice she deserved and in these seven years, her mother Asha Devi stood like a rock for her daughter. Being a woman and a mother myself, I can understand what she went through in these last seven years,” Dipika told the daily.
“The truth is that Nirbhaya’s mother was living the daughter’s death every day. If ever a film will be made on Nirbhaya’s life for the benefit of society, country and women, then I would definitely like to play Nirbhaya’s mother Asha Devi. I have to work in similar films whose characters are as strong and courageous as Asha Devi in real life,” the actress added further.
