Adipurush is a mythological pan India movie based on Ramayana starring Prabhas in the lead role and Saif Ali Khan will enact the role of Ravana as an antagonist. While the search for the female lead role is still active, a trade source tells us, "Anushka Sharma is the top contender for the role. Om met and narrated the whole idea to Anushka and she was blown away by his vision. In fact, their meeting had a very positive outcome and it will most likely be her playing Sita on screen." But it's still not confirmed - Anushka is Om's first choice for the movie but she is yet to sign on the dotted line.
Recently, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli announced that they are expecting their first baby. Her delivery date is scheduled for around January 2021. The team will plan shooting according to her convenience. They will first film the portions which won't need Anushka in them. Anushka will mostly be ready to start shooting within two months post her delivery. Om wants to begin shooting around January and since Adipurush is based on Ramayana. They will kickstart the schedule with the Prabhas-Saif conflict. If Anushka joins the cast, the film will pour out more expectations for the audience but the outcome can possibly be a bliss. Hopefully, Anushka will seal the deal.
