Veteran actor Dalip Tahil will be seen playing the iconic character Dashrath in Star Plus’ upcoming show Siya Ke Ram. This show is all about the epic Ramayan narrated through Sita’s perspective.
The actor feels that the state of women in India today has a lot to do with the wrong portrayal of Sita’s image through mythological narrations.
Dalip Tahil feels, “Over the years, the culture has become such that people take advantage of them, suppress women, dominate them… This show will highlight that ugly perceptions (about women) have been made up over the years. (This show will stress that) the matriarchal presence itself which is of great significance.”
“Sita was a thinking woman, she was a strong woman. It has been long overdue that Sita is viewed from a (certain) point of view. When ‘Ramayana’ was written, the texts show that the women were liberated in their thinking. I don’t mean that they didn’t have the femininity… they were very secure of their femininity. But over the time, that information and that fact have become adulterated. As of today, women are treated at a lower level in every way,” he added further.
We certainly hope for this new show to bring a positive change.
