According to sources, Sukumar and his team have been looking for a female lead for quite some time and seems to have zeroed in on Kriti. “The makers are looking for a fresh pairing with Vijay Deverakonda and they feel Kriti is the ideal fit to play the female lead. They have approached Kriti for the same but an official confirmation is awaited. Since Kriti has other projects lined up too, it remains to be seen if she’s going to take this up,” revealed a source in the know.
Meanwhile, Kriti Sanon will be playing the role of Sita in Om Raut’s upcoming magnum opus, Adipurush. The film, which is based on the epic Ramayana, will feature Prabhas and Lord Rama.
