While the cinephiles are still rejoicing the Naga Ashwin-Deepika-Prabhas’ project launch, ‘Adipurush’ update came as a sweet shock to the ardent Prabhas fans whose 2-year-wait after ‘Baahubali’ paid off.
Hours after director Om Raut and T-Series have come forward to make a big announcement teaming up with Prabhas, social media and mainstream media is behind one big question, who is the female lead..?
It was learnt that team Om Raut is having quite a tough time searching for the female lead opposite Prabhas who is playing the role of Lord Rama. The latest buzz in the industry is that actress Keerthy Suresh has been roped in to essay Sita in the film.
Rumour mongers have it that Om Raut recently narrated the script to Keerthy Suresh over a call and she was quite impressed with her character in the film. While an official announcement regarding the same is yet to be made, another strong buzz is around ‘Bharat One Nenu’ actress Kiara Advani.
Casting and direction team were said to zero down on the actress who gained a good fandom in both South and Bollywood industry. Sources also revealed that Kiara was approached by the makers while she was learnt to demand whopping remuneration for portraying Sita’s character which has a perfect blend of innocence and intellect.
Expected to hit the sets by 2021 after Prabhas wraps up Naga Ashwin’s project, ’Adipurush’ will be releasing in several languages including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and a few foreign languages and is scheduled for a 2022 release.
