Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut will soon be seen in the role of Sita in the upcoming film Incarnation: Sita. Written by KV Vijayendra Prasad, Manoj Muntashir and Alaukik Desai, the actress, who already has films like Tejas and Dhakad, will play the title role in the film. Despite rumors about Deepika Padukone and Kareena Kapoor in the role of Sita, writer Manoj Muntashir said that the makers have not really approached anyone as they have already made a decision about Kangana.
In an interview with the Free Press Journal, Muntashir Kangana said he was on their “priority list”. “We have not consulted other actresses and always wanted Kangana to play the title role,” he said. Manoj added that Sita’s character “has a variety of sketched shades, and Kangana is the best cast from that angle”.
Prior to the film’s announcement, Kareena Kapoor was badly trolled for raising her fees when she was offered the project. The actor never commented on the movie offer.
Manoj also discussed that Kangana “grew up in a certain way and was deeply spiritual” so “you don’t have to make her stay in that zone”. He further said, “Kangana Sita. When you talk to her and discuss the subject, you can see the sparkle in her eyes. Describing Sita’s role in the film, Manoj said she was “not shy, shy or hurtful”. “She is a stand-up, decision-maker. She should be the flagship of Indian feminism. Sita should be a role model,” she added.
Manoj said it would be a career-defining film for his cast and crew. “Avatar: Sita is a film that defines our career. We both take it seriously and know it is a film that will be remembered for a long time if done well. It is planned on a huge and luxurious scale and is made on a huge budget,” he concluded.
Incarnation: Sita is directed by Alaukik Desai.
