TV star Deepika Singh, who plays IPS officer Sandhya Rathi in the popular soap opera Diya Aur Baati Hum, says it would be interesting to see a film adaptation of the show and that she would love to play the role on the silver screen too.

“I would love to see a film adaptation of our show, if it happens. Also our production team should think about the film adaptation. I would love to play Sandhya again in a film. If the audience wants this film adaptation, then why not,” Deepika, who turned 27 on Tuesday, told IANS.

And we end #iifa2016 with a bang.Thank you #iifaawards for this one.Its super special .

“If not me, I think Bhumi Pednekar should essay Sandhya’s part in the film. She’s a brilliant actress,” she said.

Diya Aur Baati Hum, which has been on air for almost five years now, has been appreciated by the audience for a long time now and the reason behind this, Deepika feels, is the “storyline and all the characters in the show”.

“Sandhya has become very popular as the ideal image. Also, we have shown how a husband supports and encourages his wife to become an IPS officer. The storyline inspires each and every housewife to do something or achieve success in their lives,” she said.

Deepika, who is married to the show’s former director Rohit Raj Goyal, says her character in Diya Aur Baati Hum has brought about changes in her personal life.

“This character has changed me completely. I have become more mature in terms of taking decisions. I was not a fitness freak but after playing Sandhya’s character, I have started taking my fitness regime seriously,” Deepika said.
