The graceful actress Kriti Sanon, who is currently busy shooting ‘Hum Do Humare Do‘ in Chandigarh will soon join the cast of Om Raut‘s magnum opus Adipurush. This historical action drama also stars Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan in lead roles.
There’s no official confirmation about Kriti joining Adipurush yet, but if we believe the sources then the decision to cast her in the film has been made. The actress may start shooting for Adipurush after completing her schedules for Akshay Kumar starrer Bachchan Pandey and a horror thriller titled Bhediya.
Kriti Sanon was last seen as a lead in the Ashutosh Gowariker’s Panipat(2019) where she played Parvati Bai. Later she made special appearances in ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh‘ and ‘Angrezi Medium‘. Her next release will be the Laxman Utekar directorial ‘Mimi‘ which is a remake of the 2011 Marathi film ‘Mala Aai Vhhaychy!‘.
Adipurush is currently in the pre-production stage and is expected to be India’s biggest film ever. The film will see Prabhas playing Lord Ram and Saif Ali Khan as Lankesh (another name of Ravana). As we know that, the role of Sita is also very important in here, so to portray her on the big screen many top actress like Anushka Shetty and Keerthy Suresh were considered earlier.
But the makers landed on Kriti Sanon recently and they found her to be perfect for the role of Sita. Kriti has that aura around her, which makes her look like a princess/queen everytime we see her in a glamorous traditional wear. So, it’s safe to say that she will definitely shine in the role. Adipurush is reported to begin shooting in January next year with a start to end schedule.
There will be a lot of VFX in here, so most of the shooting will be done in front of the green screens. It was reported that, the team who did the VFX for Tanhaji is working in this film. Bhushan Kumar, the producer of Adipurush has also approached some big names from the VFX world, who had worked in films like Avatar and Star Wars earlier. As of now, we can expect something extraordinary from the makers. The film is scheduled to release on 11th August, 2022.
