Kriti Sanon has bagged a role in upcoming film Adipurush alongside Prabhas. Ever since the announcement of 3D action-drama Adipurush, fans have been awaiting the name of the actress who will be seen romancing the Bahubali actor. Now, Sanon’s name has been confirmed to play the role of Sita in the magnum opus.
A report in Mumbai Mirror said after considering several top names, from both the Hindi and Telugu industries, the film makers decided on Kriti. She will play the character with grace and dignity. Playing Sita is an opportunity of a lifetime for her, and she immediately came on board. She will be juggling multiple films in the first quarter of 2021. Reports suggest the shooting for the film will reportedly begin from January 2021.
A source related to the film said it will mostly be shot in the studio against a chroma screen. Om and Bhushan have been talking to VFX technicians of international repute, who have worked on films like Avatar and Star Wars, to make the shooting process smooth and mount the film on a certain scale.
Helmed by Om Raut, Adipurush is a period drama set 7,000 years ago. In the film, Prabhas will be playing the role of Lord Ram while Saif will be playing antagonist Ravan which also marks his second collaboration with director Om Raut after Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. Talking about the film, Saif Ali Khan said he is thrilled to be working with Om Raut again. He has a grand vision and the technical knowledge to pull it off. He’s thrilled to be a part of this project and looks forward to clashing swords with the mighty Prabhas and to play a role that is electrifying and demonic, he added.
Meanwhile Kriti Sanon’s lined up projects include Mimi and Akshay Kumar-starrer Bachchan Pandey. She was last seen in Ashutosh Gowariker directorial Panipat.
