Dipika Chikhlia in Gaalib: A movie on Gaalib, son of terrorist Afzal Guru, who attacked the Parliament House of India, has been released today. The name of this film is also Gaalib. The whole world is aware of Afzal Guru, but the directors have made Afzal’s son Gaalib the central point of the story, and an attempt has been made to show his positive side.
It may be surprising for the public to see the positive side of terrorist Afzal Guru’s son. Still, the most surprising thing is that Sita, i.e. Dipika Chikhlia, the mother of the famous serial ‘Ramayana’, has re-entered the big screen in this film.
Actress Dipika Chikhlia, who played the role of Mother Sita in Ramanand Sagar’s famous religious serial ‘Ramayana’, has again come into the limelight with this film. Dipika is playing the role of Afzal Guru’s wife in this film; that is, she has become the mother of Gaalib, and her name is Shabana. Although the main character of this film is Gaalib, Dipika Chikhlia is currently being discussed on Twitter.
According to this story of Gaalib, directed by Manoj Giri and written by Dheeraj Mishra-Yashomati Devi, Gaalib grew up under his mother Shabana, keeping the name of his father Afzal Guru away.
Dipika has played the role of Maa Shabana very well. Still, some people are unable to believe why Dipika, whom she saw in the positive role of Mata Sita ka positive, is playing the role of a terrorist’s wife. In such a situation, resentment has been seen among some people, which is evident on Twitter and other social media platforms.
Some people are angry with Dipika Chikhlia.
A user wrote on Twitter, “Dipika ji’s respect, she is going to lose now. They have to work in the Gaalib picture, but they do not know what they will lose. Hindus would worship him, but from now on, everything is over. Jai Shri Ram.”
DEEPIKA G KA JO IZZAT HAI WO AB KHONE WAALI HAI GAALIB PICTURE ME KAAM KARNA HAI KARE BUT KYA KHONE WAALI HAI UNKO YE Nahi PATA…
UNKE PIC LAGA KE HUM HINDU UNKI PUJA KARTE BUT SAB KHATAM BUT SAB KHATAM AB SE
JAI SHREE RAM🙏🙏🙏🚩🚩🚩

The slogans of #BoycottBollywood have also been released to show a terrorist as a hero in another Bollywood film. ‘Gaalib’ is based on the life of Gaalib Guru, son of convict Afzal Guru. #BoycottBollywood
Another Bollywood movie is all set to release where a terrorist will be highlighted as hero perhaps. 😡

Dipika Chikhlia became emotional after hearing the script of the film
In an interview given in April 2022, it was revealed that Dipika Chikhlia did not want to play the role of a terrorist’s wife because she was worried about her Sita image. But, when the team narrated the film’s script to her, she got emotional.
Afzal Guru is shown in a symbolic form in the film, and the main characters are mother and son, i.e. Gaalib and Shabana. The film is based on the strong relationship between mother and son. The film’s story is about whose main character Gaalib will choose between the gun and the pen. This decision is his.
