No one can forget actress Deepika Chikalia’s portrayal of Sita in Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayana. Apart from Ramayana, Deepika acted in popular shows such as Sword of Tipu Sultan and Vikram Aur Betaal.  In 1991, Deepika won from Vadodara constituency (in Gujarat) as an MP.

Deepika is currently working in the Hindi film Gaalib, which is based on the life of Afzal Guru’s son Gaalib Guru. She will be playing the important part of Gaalib’s mother.

Why would Deepika never wear shorts?

She said: ” It’s been so many years since I played Maa Sita, got married, left the industry and had children but still I take great care in how I dress. My friends wear shorts and sleeveless tops, kurtas and such on parties and other occasions but I always choose jeans or sarees.

“‘Sita ji is wearing shorts’ seeing this can upset people. I make sure I don’t anybody’s sentiments.”

Deepika further added: “Sita’s character earned me the respect and this is what I wanted. Moreover, the film industry is not a bad place.”
