kareena Kapoor Demands 12 crore for sita role
Kareena had allegedly been approached to play the legendary role of Sita in the mythological period saga film which will be helmed by Alaukik Desai. The news of her getting casted and her demand for such a huge price of 12cr rupees had been making rounds for quite a few days. A report by Bollywood hungama claimed that the actor was approached for the role for which she demanded a whopping Rs.12 crore.
The report quoted a source close to the actress, “Bebo who usually asks in the Rs. 6-8 crores range for her films has quoted a sum of Rs. 12 crores which has put the producers in a tizzy. In fact, right now, they are reconsidering their decision and also taking the film to a younger actress, as well. But talks are on and Bebo remains the first choice.”
The report also quoted that “Sita will need at least 8-10 months of prep, shoot and production. So she will be completely consumed by one film at that point but Bebo also realises that this will be her biggest magnum opus till date, as it’s a retelling of Ramayana from Sita’s point of view”.
The film is said to be jointly directed by Ravi Udhyawar and Nitesh Tiwari and will retell the story of Ramayana from Sita’s point of view. Other than Kareena Kapoor Khan, several other names of actors like Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan’s name have been doing the rounds for the role of Sita and Rama.
