Ramjanmabhoomi has a special role in my film Tejas, so I felt like seeing Ram Lalla, blessed be my Ram."
In an interaction with the media she said, "Finally the Ram Lalla temple has been built. This is a centuries-long struggle by Hindus and our generation is able to see this day. I have written a script on Ayodhya and also did research...This is a 600-year-long struggle and this day is becoming possible due to the Modi Government and CM Yogi Adityanath."
She further stated, "This will be the biggest pilgrimage site for Hindus like the Vatican is for Christians...This will be a grand symbol of the country and Sanatan culture before the world...Ram Mandir also plays a significant role in our film Tejas..."
