Ayushamann Khuranna's wife Tahira Kashyap has rubbished the reports of her mother being a part of Ramanand Sagar's 'Ramayan'. The filmmaker said, "There's no truth to these reports of my mother Mrs Anita Kashyap starring in the Ramayan show."
Ramayan is an Indian historical-drama epic television series, which aired during 1987-1988, created, written, and directed by Ramanand Sagar. The show was a television adaptation of the ancient Indian Hindu epic of the same name. It is being re-telecasted on Doordarshan, amid the nationwide coronavirus lockdown. Recently, a report claimed that Tahira Kashyap's mother Anita played the character of demoness Trijata in Doordarshan's 'Ramayan'. Tahira has dismissed the rumours and released a statement on her Instagram that reads: "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's father Yajan Kashyap, in an interview with a media outlet, also said that the reports of his wife, Anita playing demoness Trijata is 'totally, baseless, false and concocted.'
This comes after several reports claimed that there's a 'special connection' with 'Ramayan's Trijata and 'Subh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan' actor Ayushmann Khuranna. Pictures of Ayushmann's mother-in-law Anita and Trijata did rounds on the internet as netizens pointed out the similarities. However, the Kashyaps have dismissed the claims.
Meanwhile, the only connection between Ayushmann Khuranna and Ramanand Sagar's 'Ramayan' is actress Dipika Chikhlia. Popular for her role of Sita, she was also a part of Ayushmann's 2019 comedy-film, 'Bala'.
