Ramayan’s Sita AKA Dipika Chikhlia revealed, there was a ‘big fat snake on the tree’ where they were shooting for a scene

Actress Dipika Chikhlia played the role of ‘Sita’ in Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan. She keeps sharing interesting anecdotes related to the show on her Instagram account. This Friday was no different. She took her Instagram to share a throwback post that turned out to be quite an interesting throwback incident from the sets of the show many years ago. Dipika shared two photos of herself dressed as Sita, along with Arun Govil as Ram and Sunil Lahri as Lakshman, from the sets of Ramayan, with memory associated with the scene.

She mentioned that when the trio was busy shooting under a tree, the cinematographer asked them to vacate the place and don’t stand underneath the tree because there was a big fat snake on that tree.


Her throwback post read, “There is a story behind this scene ….so I shared …we were busy with the shoot, learning lines and so on…the day was as normal as could be, after the scene got over our cameraman Ajit naik (cinematography) came to tell us please vacate the place and don’t stand underneath the tree and we were wondering all the three actors as to what was the hurry and why so abrupt …he asked all the technicians also to clear the field ..Sagar Saab was also wondering what happened …and then he pointed out to a huge fat snake on the tree and what followed after that was we all RAN for our life🤣 sooo many memories 😊….#memories#ramayan#sagarworld


Dipika Chikhlia’s Instagram is like a trip down her memory lane. Here are the photos of some BTS of Ramayan sets.

As the lockdown was imposed in March Ramayan was brought back on TV with Doordarshan airing it twice a day, reminding eighties.
