Mumbai, Sep 14: Actor Kangana Ranaut is set to play the role of Goddess Sita in her forthcoming epic period drama "The Incarnation - Sita", the makers announced on Tuesday. The film will be directed by Alaukik Desai and backed by producer Saloni Sharma from SS Studio.
"The Incarnation - Sita" has been penned by screenwriter KV Vijayendra Prasad, who also wrote Ranaut's recent outing "Thalaivii".
Sharma said Ranaut is the apt choice to play the titular character.
"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," the producer said in a statement.
Ranaut will next be seen in "Dhaakad" and "Tejas", in which she will play the role of an Indian Air Force pilot.
