Tahira Kashyap has issued a statement, refuting rumors that her mother Anita Kashyap was a part of television epic Ramayan. It was reported that Anita played the gentle demon Trijata on the show.
“There’s no truth to these reports of my mother Mrs Anita Kashyap starring in the Ramayan show. All these reports are false. She was an educationist and has no connection with this show, whatsoever,” Tahira said.
Trijata was the one who was always by Sita’s side after she was captured by Ravana and put in captivity in Lanka’s Ashok Vatika. Trijata, in her dark outfits, would offer support to Sita when she felt alone and abandoned. Her sweet but fierce character warmed audiences up to her back in the ‘80s. As Doordarshan began re-telecasting the show again amid the lockdown, younger generations are also learning about the character.
