Lyricist and screenplay writer for the upcoming film 'The Incarnation: Sita', Manoj Muntashir has clarified that Kareena Kapoor Khan and Deepika Padukone were not approached for the titular role. Yes, you read that right! As many know, it was reported that Bebo demanded twelve crore to play the role of Sita. The actress was even trolled left, right and centre for the same.
And now, in an interview with Free Press Journal, Manoj Muntashir clarified that they never approached any actresses for the role of Sita. He further stated that Kangana Ranaut was always their first choice for the film.
"Rumours were floating around about actresses like Kareena and Deepika being approached for the project, but they were not true. The Sita Devi we have sketched has various shades, and Kangana is the best cast from that point of view. Once you see the film in theatres, you won’t be able to visualise anybody in her place. We never approached other actresses and always wanted Kangana to play the title role. The search for a young actress to play the title role was on, as it is about Sita in her young days. We are not showing the whole Ramayana, but her life as a young girl before she married Ram," said Manoj. ALSO READ:Kangana Ranaut To Essay The Role Of Goddess Sita In The Incarnation-SITA
