News about director Om Raut‘s magnum opus, Adipurush has always made it to the headlines right from the time it was announced. The makers first announced that Prabhas is all set to essay the role of Lord Ram in this film inspired by the Ramayana. Later they announced that Saif Ali Khan has been roped in to play Lankesh, the antagonist moulded on Ravan’s character. But ever since then, everyone has been super curious about who will play the role of Sita opposite Prabhas in the film.

From Anushka Sharma, Kiara Advani and Keerthy Suresh, a lot of names were being circulated in the news. But now, according to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Kriti Sanon is whom we will be seeing on screen as Sita! Yes, the source reveals that after considering a lot of names from both the Hindi and Telugu industries, they have finally zeroed in on Kriti who will play the role with ‘grace and dignity’. The source further shares that it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Kriti and that she immediately came on board.

The report also states that the magnum opus will go on floors in January next year and is set for a start-to-finish schedule. The film will be shot indoors for most part, in front of a chroma screen as there is a lot of VFX and special effects involved in it.

Kriti is currently shooting for Hum Do Humare Do opposite Rajkummar Rao in Chandigarh. She also has Bachchan Pandey opposite Akshay Kumar that she will start work on from January and also reportedly has a horror-comedy alongside Varun Dhawan called Bhediya in the works.

Coming back to Adipurush, I totally can’t wait to see her in it!
