She also spoke about her fond memories with the show and said, “Ramayan set was a male-dominated. I was the only actress on the sets, primarily, so mostly I would sit with the Sagar family and their daughter-in-laws. At most, I spoke to Dara Singh ji on and off. Also, Shyam ji, was most of the times in his mask- in fact- he didn’t even say his dialogues. He was just asked to be on the screen because of his sheer magical personality and was told, ‘Aapki lines baad mein dub kar lenge, aap kuch bhi bol lo abhi.'”
