While there have been several biopics over the years on many freedom fighters, this film happens to be the first biopic on Sarojini Naidu.
While speaking with SpotboyE, Dipika Chikhlia shared some memories from back when Ramayan was being filmed. “Ramayan set was a male-dominated. I was the only actress on the sets, primarily, so mostly I would sit with the Sagar family and their daughters-in-law. At most, I spoke to Dara Singh ji on and off. Also, Shyam ji, was most of the times in his mask- in fact- he didn't even say his dialogues. He was just asked to be on the screen because of his sheer magical personality and was told, 'Aapki lines baad mein dub kar lenge, aap kuch bhi bol lo abhi,’” she said.
