Months after creating quite a storm with her statements on turning spiritual, model-turned-nun Sofia Hayat was seen essaying the role of Soorpanakha during a Ramleela in Delhi.

Soorpnakha was the demon sister of Raavana in Valmiki’s epic Ramayana.

Staged in Delhi’s Lal Quila Ground, this year’s Ramleela also saw several Bollywood and TV actors on the stage. While Shakti Kapoor played Khar on Thursday in ‘Soorpnakha Khand’, Ashmit Patel played Bharat and Pankaj Dheer essayed the role of Dashrath during the Vanwaas episode on Wednesday.
