And while Kareena Kapoor Khan has lost out on this massive project, Kangana Ranaut has bagged the epic. Speaking about the period drama, director Alaukik Desai said in a statement, “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 Kangana Ranaut on board as SITA. This pious journey will change the course of how we perceive our mythology.” Interestingly, writer KV Vijayendra Prasad, had previously nominated Kangana Ranaut to essay the role of ‘Sita’.
