All curiosity regarding who will play Sita in the new Ramayan as viewed through the Goddess’s eyes may now be put to rest. The actress for the character of Sita is yet to be determined, according to veteran writer KV Vijayendra Prasad, who is writing the script.
He said, “We have not yet finalised who will play Sitamaa’s character. We will shortly announce a name.”
The news that Kareena Kapoor Khan had been offered the role of Sita in a new Ramayan adaptation written by KV Vijayendra Prasad and directed by Alaukik Desai turned out to be bogus, and it prompted a furious backlash from internet users. It was even slyly claimed that Kareena might not do the part because the producers can’t afford her 12-crore price.
As established faces would not be acceptable to the audience, the project is now considering casting a new face as Sita.
“When Deepika Chikhlia played Sita in Ramanand Sagar’s serial Ramayan, the audiences were not familiar with her face. They willingly accepted her as Sita,” explains a source close to the project to SpotboyE.
