No Sita Maa Yet, Says Writer Vijayendra Prasad, Newcomer May Play Sita

All speculation about who will play Sita  in the  new version   of the Ramayan as  seen through the  eyes  of Sita, can be laid to rest. The veteran  writer Vijayendra  Prasad who is writing Sita told this writer that the actor for the role is  yet to be finalized.

His words: “We have  not yet finalized who will play Sitamaa’s  character.We will shortly  announce a name.”

Sources say  the  project is looking at casting a  new face as Sita , as  established  faces would  not be  acceptable  to the audience.

“When Deepika Chikhlia   played Sita in Ramanand Sagar’s serial Ramayan the audiences were not familiar with her face. They willingly accepted her as  Sita . But if today Deepika Padukone plays Sita they will be looking at  Deepika, not Sita,” explains a source close  to the  project.

The  “news” of Kareena  Kapoor Khan being offered the part of  Sita in  the new  telling  of the  Ramayan  written by K Vijayendra Prasad and directed  by  Alaukik Desai , not only turned to be false they also  elicited a vehement response  from netizens.  It was also being  slyly suggested that Kareena “may  not” do the role  as the producers can’t afford  the 12-crore fee she has demanded.

But when I asked  veteran writer  K Vijayendra Prasad he denied  the  report emphatically.  “No no no,” was  his  reply.
