Actor Kriti Sanon, who will be playing the iconic character of goddess Sita comes in the multi-lingual period saga ‘Adipurush’, says the character comes with a lot of responsibility, something the team of the film is aware of. The movie is the on-screen adaptation of the Hindu epic Ramayana and features Prabhas as Lord Ram and Saif Ali Khan in the role of Lankesh.
Several artists have been trolled lately for hurting religious sentiments. Kriti says the team of ‘Adipurush’ understands the importance of depicting the story with sensitivity.
“We have to obviously stay within a certain boundary and realise the weightage and the responsibility that come with the character that you are playing. Thankfully, I am in the hands of a brilliant director, someone who has done all the research on the subject and on all characters,” Sanon told PTI.
She said that Raut, who also directed the 2020 period blockbuster ‘Tanhaji’, is an “extremely aware” filmmaker.
“I know he has written the film and the character so beautifully. He guides everyone so well, that I don’t see anything going wrong. When you do something with all purity and honesty, it shows on screen. I hope people feel it has been done well,” she said.
The film went on floors earlier this year. Sanon said it was a delight to work with Raut, Prabhas and Khan- all her first time collaborators.
“Everyone is amazing, warm and so correct for the part. I shot with Prabhas at the beginning of my schedule. My next schedule was with Saif. Both are quite different personalities but extremely entertaining in their own way,” she said.
The 30-year-old will be next seen in ‘Mimi’, which is scheduled to be released on Jio Cinema and Netflix on July 30.
