The hype around Om Raut’s epic action drama ‘Adipurush’ is REAL, with impressive cast like South Superstar Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan locked in!
The hunt for a leading lady, an A-lister Bollywood heroine, is on. However, despite being the 1st choice, Deepika Padukone won’t be cast in the movie!
Adipurush will feature Prabhas as Lord Rama and Saif Ali Khan as the antagonist Lankesh.
A Spotboye report clarifies – that Padukone was the ideal, first choice to play Sita opposite Prabhas’s Rama avatar. However, the Bollywood Diva is already paired with Prabhas for another major project – Nag Ashwin’s next – and hence the makers won’t be approaching her.
A source revealed to Spotboye, “She’s already doing Ashwin Nag’s film with Prabhas. They can’t be paired in two back-to-back films.”
“It’s a problem. Deepika was the perfect choice. No other A-lister seems to fit into Sita’s role,” the source further added.
Who do you think should be cast as the female lead in Adipurush then? Let us know.
