One of the most ambitious stories that filmmakers have wanted to tell for decades is about to be transformed for the big screen. The Ramayana will see two renditions in the coming year. One is Om Raut’s Adipurush that stars Saif Ali Khan, Prabhas and Kriti Sanon and another one by Baahubali writer, KV Vijayendra Prasad that will be helmed by Alaukik Desai.
Titled Sita and told from her perspective, rumour has it that filmmakers have considered Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor Khan for the title role. Further, a source revealed that Ranveer Singh is being approached to play Ravana, “Sita will be mounted on a huge scale and the magnitude of the film will be as big as a Baahubali. While it’s a toss-up between Kareena and Alia for the main role, the makers (director Alaukik Desai) have approached Ranveer Singh to play Ravana. Yes, if this happens, it might be the first ever film that Ranveer and Kareena will be doing together. They were supposed to do Ram Leela but it didn’t work out. From what we know, both Bebo and Ranveer have loved their parts and are waiting for the final narration to give a go ahead to the project.”
Though not paired opposite each other, Kareena and Ranveer will be seen playing siblings, Jahanara Begum and Dara Shikoh in Karan Johar’s Takht.
