Written by veteran screenwriter KV Vijayendra Prasad, The Incarnation- SITA is an upcoming period drama starring Kangana Ranaut. The four times National Award winning actor will be playing the leading lady in the role of Sita.
The film will be directed by Alaukik Desai who said in a statement, “Universe does help those who surrender to it with belief. What was a mirage, is now clarity. A dream of a pious character never explored is now a reality. I am ecstatic to bring Kangana Ranaut on board as Sita. This pious journey will change the course of how we perceive our mythology. Thank you SS Studio for your immense support and belief.”
Initially there were rumours that Kareena Kapoor Khan will be playing the role of Sita and while the actress was mum on the news of her hiked fee, she did say, “I make it quite clear what I want and I think that respect should be given. It’s not about being demanding, it’s about being respectful towards women. And I think things are kind of changing.”
Saloni Sharma of SS Studio, which will be producing the film, shared, “As a woman, I couldn’t be happier in welcoming Ms Kangana Ranaut on board our VFX magnum opus, ‘The Incarnation Sita’. Kangana symbolises the spirit and essence of the Indian woman – fearless, daunting and daring…. It’s time we stepped in to celebrate equality in every respect.”
On the work front, Kangana Ranaut was last seen in Thailavi chronicling the story of actor turned politician Jayalalitha. Among other projects, she is working on Dhaakad, Tejas and now The Incarnation- Sita.
