Kangana Ranaut appears to have won the competition to play Sita in a Bollywood film. Kangana, who has won four National Awards, is scheduled to play the mythical character in her forthcoming film The Incarnation – SITA, directed by Alaukik Desai. KV Vijayendra Prasad, a seasoned screenwriter, wrote the film’s story.
Filmmaker Alaukik Desai, in a press statement said, “Universe does help those who surrender to it with belief. What was a mirage, is now clarity. A dream of a pious character never explored is now a reality. I am ecstatic to bring Kangana Ranaut on board as Sita. This pious journey will change the course of how we perceive our mythology. Thank you SS Studio for your immense support and belief.”
There had been speculation that Kareena Kapoor will play Sita in the Alaukik Desai-directed film. While the actress has never officially addressed the rumours that she hiked her pay for the part, she recently addressed the trolling in an interview with The Guardian, “I make it quite clear what I want and I think that respect should be given. It’s not about being demanding, it’s about being respectful towards women. And I think things are kind of changing.”
Saloni Sharma of SS Studio, will be bankrolling the magnum opus.
Apart from Sita, Kangana has wrapped up Dhaakad and has Tejas in her kitty.
