Dipika Chikhlia became a household name after playing Sita to Arun Govil’s Ram in Ramanand Sagar’s 1987 mythological TV show, Ramayan. It was one of the most popular shows of that time and was breaking TRP records yet again when it was re-aired last year during the lockdown following the COVID-19 pandemic. While fans enjoyed rewatching the show, it’s actors had even appeared on The Kapil Sharma Show to reminisce about their shooting days. Now, Pinkvilla has a new update on one of its lead actors, Dipika.

After Ramayan, Dipika had appeared in a few films including the Rajesh Khanna starrers Ghar Ka Chiraag (1989) and Rupaye Dus Karod (1991); however, she later took a break from films for a few years. She made a comeback in 2018 with the Gujarati film Natsamrat and will soon be seen in Manoj Giri’s Gaalib which is expected to release next month. We have learnt that she has now signed another film which rolls from February 2021. Dipika is extremely excited to start shooting for this one.

“The film will be directed and produced by Karan Razdan and revolves around two religions. Dipika will start shooting for the movie in Uttarakhand from February 15. She will be there for 10 days and will then return back to Mumbai. The dates of her second schedule are yet to be finalised. Dipika has also begun the readings and prep for this yet-untitled film,” informs a source close to the actress.

Besides Ramayan, lockdown had also given fans an opportunity to rewatch BR Chopra’s Mahabharat. Both these shows kept the television viewers entertained while they were locked up in their homes.
