Kiara Advani was the first choice as Prabhas’s pair in the epic drama, ‘Adipurush’. The film was recently announced in the direction of Bollywood filmmaker Om Raut. Saif Ali Khan is the antagonist for Prabhas.
The makers are struggling to finalize the female lead. They want an actress who can provide bulk dates. When Kiara Advani informed the makers of her inability to adjust dates due to a hectic schedule, they thought of roping in Anushka Sharma. However, she is pregnant with her first child. Thus came the name of Kriti Sanon.
However, the makers are said to be in two minds about Kriti Sanon. This is why her name was not announced at the Dussera festival.
‘Adipurush’ is based on the Ramayana. Prabhas will be playing Lord Rama.
