Last month, T-Series and Om Raut made a grand announcement of reuniting one more time after the blockbuster Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. Pinkvilla was the first to tell you EXCLUSIVELY that Prabhas and Bhushan Kumar are teaming up for a big period drama based on Indian mythology. They revealed that Om will be directing Prabhas in one of the biggest Indian films ever - Adipurush - which is modelled on the Ramayana. 

Right after Prabhas was locked to play the main lead, the makers revealed that Saif Ali Khan will be stepping in as Ravana for the big budgeted saga. But people were still wondering who would play Sita in Adipurush. Now, we can confirm that the makers have almost locked in on a name. A trade source tells us, "Anushka Sharma is the top contender for the role. Om met and narrated the whole idea to Anushka and she was blown away by his vision. In fact, their meeting had a very positive outcome and it will most likely be her playing Sita on screen."

Recently, Anushka announced that she's expecting her first baby with Virat Kohli. Her delivery date is scheduled around January 2021. Once the nod from Anushka comes, the team will then align the shoot in a way to adjust it accordingly for her. "Anushka will mostly be ready to start shoot within two months post her delivery. Om wants to begin shoot around January and since Adipurush is based on Ramayana, they will first film the portions which won't need Anushka in them. They will kickstart the schedule with the Prabhas-Saif conflict. But it's still not confirmed - Anushka is Om's first choice for the movie but she is yet to sign on the dotted line." But if Anushka joins the cast, it will be one of the most powerful ensembles to feature in an Indian film so far.

Please don't take Anushka Sharma. We don't want to see her. Keerthy Suresh would be great. Infact, why not repeat Baahubali jodi?

Isn't anushka pregnant?It will take more than a year or so to get back on track plus the industry expects the actresses to get in shape..Is this news about her playing Sita even true?

I thought it’s Kiara Advani for Sita

Anonymous 3 weeks ago

No offence to her. But this cast is way too old to play the characters they are given. Nothing fresh yin the casting. For those kind of roles you need lesser known actors so that audience are convinced.

Pooja Hedge cannot act, just a glam girl! Anushka has some essence of acting in her! Stop casting south indian glam actresses, who dont know how to act! They are just there to show their glam looks and do nothing!!!!

They need actress, not manquins. We have already seen Pooja's capabilities in Mohenjodaro and housefull4 Lmao Anushka Sharma is a far better choice

When Saif Ali Khan was roped in for Ravana I knew where this movie was headed ..wonder why this director took only Prabhas for Rama from South Indian actors. Anushka cant act at all and doesnt have the serene beauty Sita requires to have.

For 2 more years she cannot come for acting .one year to deliver her baby and 1 more year to get in shape .

You need a lot of composure to play this role, whereas Anushka mainly does loudmouth roles. Her dialogue delivery is more tapori, like Varun. Kiara would have been a good choice.

Complete misfit for this role, she is only good for loud mouthed, hamming in North Indian roles, she lacks the depth, range and beauty this role requires. But casting choices for this movie, so far, are terrible. Will pass this one.
