Recently, Kriti Sanon got caught in controversy due to the promotion of the film 'Adipurush', when the film's director Om Raut 'kissed' her in the temple premises. As soon as this video came, there was an uproar on social media. The actress was also trolled a lot for arguing that she hurt religious sentiments.
When they discussed the issue with Deepika Chikhalia, who immortalized Sita's role, she has also condemned this action and given her side. Deepika said, "I think it is a big problem with today's actors that they neither enter the character nor understand its emotions. For them, Ramayana must have been just a film. Hardly she would have poured her soul into it. See, Kriti is today's generation actress. In today's era, kissing or hugging someone is considered a sweet gesture. She would never have considered herself Sita ji. It becomes a matter of emotion, I have lived the role of Sita, while today's actresses play her as just a character. It doesn't matter to them after the film or project is over."
Deepika further says, "Now talking about us, no one on our set had the fun to even call us by name. When we were on our character, many people would come from the set and touch our feet. That era was different. At that time, people did not consider us as actors, people understood us as God. We couldn't even hug anyone, let alone kiss anyone. After the release of Adipurush, all the actors will be busy with their other projects and may forget the character, but this has never happened to us. We were treated as if we were gods from above and were living in this world. That is why we also did not do anything that would hurt people's sentiments."
