Kriti Sanon becomes the latest Bollywood celeb to join in the cast of Saif Ali Khan, Prabhas and Sunny Singh starrer ‘Adipurush’ helmed by filmmaker Om Raut. She will be essaying the role of Sita opposite South superstar Prabhas as Ram. She posted a photo of herself on Instagram to reveal this news.
In the photos, Kriti is posing with Prabhas and actor Sunny Singh. Prabhas is in an orange kurta and Sunny is seen in a golden one. Kriti can be seen in a white and pink floral suit.
Sharing the photos, Kriti wrote, "A new journey begins.. One of my most special ones.. overwhelmed to be a part of #Adipurush."
It appears that while Prabhas plays Lord Ram in the Adipurush movie, Kriti plays Sita and Sunny might play Lakshman.
The team was showered with good wishes on social media. "Congratulations and All the best darling," wrote one. "Wow.... excited," wrote another. Saif plays Lankesh, another name for Ravana, in the movie.
T-Series head Bhushan Kumar said, “When Kriti heard the script od Adipurush she instantly agreed for the part. On the other hand, Sunny fits the character perfectly. I am happy to have them on board.”
Om Raut added, “When I was casting for the female lead, I needed an actress who not only has an amazing screen presence but more importantly, is also a great performer. Kriti was our obvious choice for the film. Sunny is a great actor and we're sure he will impress viewers with his performance."
Talking about the film, Prabhas had earlier said in a statement: “Every role and every character comes with its own challenges, but portraying a character like this comes with tremendous responsibility and pride."
He also added, "I am very excited to portray this character from our epic especially the way Om has designed it. I am sure the youth of our country will shower all their love on our film.”
