All rumours have been put to rest as the news of Kangana playing Sita in the epic period drama ‘The Incarnation- Sita’ was announced by the filmmakers on Tuesday.
The film will be directed by Alaukik Desai and backed by producer Saloni Sharma from SS Studio. ‘The Incarnation – Sita’ has been penned by screenwriter KV Vijayendra Prasad, who also wrote Ranaut’s recent outing ‘Thalaivii’.
Universe does help those who surrender to it with belief. What was a mirage, is now clarity. A dream of a pious character never explored is now a reality. I am ecstatic to bring #KanganaRanaut on board as SITA. Thank you #SSStudio for your immense support. pic.twitter.com/9PX0YwdcOn

On his twitter handle, Desai wrote, “Universe does help those who surrender to it with belief. What was a mirage, is now clarity. A dream of a pious character never explored is now a reality. I am ecstatic to bring #KanganaRanaut on board as SITA. Thank you #SSStudio for your immense support.”
According to Sharma said Ranaut is the apt choice to play the titular character. “As a woman, I couldn’t be happier in welcoming Ms Kangana Ranaut on board our Vfx magnum opus, ‘The Incarnation Sita’. Kangana symbolizes the spirit and essence of the Indian woman – fearless, daunting and daring… It’s time we stepped in to celebrate equality in every respect,” the producer said in a statement.
Earlier, there were reports that Kareena Kapoor Khan was approached for the role of Sita but things went out of hands when the actress demanded a fee of Rs 12 crore. That’s not all, Twitterati took it as an opportunity to express its reservation toward Kareena for the role. In no time, #Boycott Kareena got trending. They made it clear that they don’t want her to play the Hindu Goddess.
Meanwhile, Ranaut, who shared the poster of ‘The Incarnation – Sita’ on her Instagram, will next be seen in ‘Dhaakad’ and ‘Tejas’, in which she will play the role of an Indian Air Force pilot.
