Actor Dipika Chikhlia, better known as Ramayan’s Sita, is all set to play veteran freedom fighter Sarojini Naidu. The hit TV serial’s star shared the first-look poster of the film on Thursday. Titled Sarojini, the poster shows Dipika looking away from the camera with huge crowds in the background.
Sharing the poster, Dipika wrote: “#sarojini#sarojininaudu .....1st look #poster......#starplus #ramayan #730 #everyday.” With minimal make-up, a middle-aged Dipika as Sarojini looks hopeful and reflective. The tagline reads in Hindi: “Swatantra ki ek nayika ki unkahi kahaani (the untold story of one of the leaders of freedom movement)”
