'Sita' Dipika Chikhlia reviews ‘Adipurush’ teaser: ‘A film's characters must appeal to the audience’

'It is only a teaser, may be it does not do justice to the film,’ Deepika Chikhlia on ‘Adipurush’ teaser.

The teaser of ‘Adipurush’, starring Prabhas, Kriti Sanon, and Saif Ali Khan, has been brutally trolled on social media for its poor CGI, VFX, and costumes. Now, actor Dipika Chikhlia, who portrayed the role of Sita in Ramanand Sagar’s ‘Ramayan’, has reviewed the teaser of the Om Raut directorial.

In an interview with Aaj Tak, Dipika said that the ‘Adipurush’ teaser shows Raavan as a Mughal, not a Sri Lankan.

‘A film's characters must appeal to the audience. If the character is from Sri Lanka, they should not look like the Mughals. I could not understand much as we get to see him for mere 30 seconds in the teaser, but he does look different. I agree that times have changed and VFX is an essential part but only as long as the people's sentiments are not hurt. (But then) It is only a teaser, may be it does not do justice to the film,’ she said.

She added, ‘If I try to connect myself with Arvind Trivedi (Ravan in Ramanand Sagar's Ramayan), I would not feel good. But I also believe each actor has the liberty to portray a character as their interpretation.’

Recently, director Om Raut also responded to the backlash he has been facing. Speaking with news agency PTI, he said that he was ‘disheartened’ by the criticism, but not surprised. According to him, the film is made for a larger medium, but he had to share the teaser on YouTube so that it reaches a wide audience.
