Director Om Raut’s upcoming film ‘Adipurush’ is in the news these days for its cast, as to who will be playing the lead role. As per reports, Prabhas will be seen in the male lead while speculations about the female lead are still ongoing. There were reports of national award winner actress Keerthy Suresh will play the lead role of Sita in the film.
However, according to a report in Pinkvilla, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma is one of the actresses who are being offered the role for the film. The portal quoted a source saying, “Om Raut recently met Anushka and narrated the whole idea of the film. She was blown away by his vision. Their meeting had a very positive outcome and it will most likely be her playing Sita on screen.”
The source further added, “Anushka will mostly be ready to start shooting within two months post her delivery. Om wants to begin around January and since Adipurush is based on Ramayana, they will first film the portions which won’t need Anushka in them. They will kickstart the schedule with the Prabhas-Saif conflict. But it’s still not confirmed – Anushka is Om’s first choice for the movie but she is yet to sign on the dotted line.”
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli recently announced her pregnancy news on Instagram as they are expecting their first child in January 2021.
