 Kareena Kapoor missed massive project by demanding 12 crores for the movie ‘SITA’, now which the role plays by Gangana Ranaut…

Kangana Ranaut announced her next venture ‘The Incarnation – SITA’ on Tuesday and looks like the actress has bagged this project from her contemporary Kareena Kapoor Khan. This epic drama is written by Baahubali franchise writer KV Vijayendra Prasad and this is reportedly the same project for which Kareena had demanded a fee of Rs 12 crore. The actress had hit headlines for her pay hike. Seems like Kareena’s loss is Kangana’s gain!

While there was a lot of speculation about Bebo’s demand, the actress opened up about the controversy. Kareena told a news portal that just a few years ago nobody would talk about a man or woman actually getting equal pay in a movie and that only now a lot of them being vocal about it. The actress further added that she always makes it quite clear as to what she wants. According to Kareena, it is not about demanding but it is about being respectful towards women and she feels that things are changing.

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’.

The leading lady of ‘The Incarnation – SITA’ will have to reportedly undergo extensive training for almost 8 to 10 months. This saga will also be VFX heavy. Sharing details about the same, producer Saloni Sharma said, “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.”

Apart from ‘Sita’, Kangana Ranaut will also be seen in ‘Tejas’. Directed by Sarvesh Mewara, this film will see Kangana play the role of an air force pilot. She also has ‘Dhaakad’ with filmmaker Razneesh Razy Ghai.
