Earlier, speaking to ETimes about her journey as Sita, she said, “My life has been a wonderful dream. I was fulfilling my creative and artistic side of me. Luckily, I got a family like the Sagars. I was with them for most of my time and it was like a beautiful family where lots of love was given to me. I was given some fantastic roles whether it was Vikram Betaal, Daada Daadi and of course nothing can beat the role of Sita. It all happened to me beautifully and it was not something that I thought would happen to me. But I always thought when I leave the industry, I should be respected.” Also Read - Ramayan's Sita Aka Dipika Chikhlia on Show's Rerun Creating World Record: I am Overjoyed it Has Overtaken Game of Thrones
“I think we all who have been part of Ramayan were blessed. My life has changed in the sense I was a simple, regular girl who would go to shoot and come back and then who landed up in the Parliament. That’s the big change that happened to me. Because I loved doing makeup and acting and it was my passion, it still is and one fine day I realised I was standing at the steps of the Parliament. So, all that happened in my life happened because of Ramayan”, she added.
