Since filmmaker Om Raut announced his next magnum-opus ‘Adipurush’, there has been much buzz in the air about who he would cast as the female lead opposite Prabhas.
After earlier rumours of Keerthy Suresh and Kiara Advani being linked to the role of Sita, it now seems Anushka Sharma is expected to bag the role.
A source told PinkVilla, “Anushka Sharma is the top contender for the role. Om met and narrated the whole idea to Anushka and she was blown away by his vision. In fact, their meeting had a very positive outcome and it will most likely be her playing Sita on screen.”
Sharma is pregnant with her first baby with husband, Virat Kohli. If she snaps up this project, it will be her first on-screen project since 2018. The film would go on the floors in 2021 with a release in 2022.
Saif Ali Khan plays the antagonist in the huge budget project.
