If the rumours in the Telugu media are to be believed, the makers have offered Kiara Advani the role of Sita, the female lead in Om Raut-directorial flick. The talks are underway and the actress seems to be interested to work in the mega-budget movie.

The actress has a couple of interesting projects in hand that include Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Laxmmi Bomb, Shershaah and Indoo Ki Jawani. The announcement on Kiara joining Adipurush cast will be made official only after she signs the project on the dotted lines.

Meanwhile, the makers of Adipurush have roped in Saif Ali Khan to play the menacing, lethal and brutal villain, all at the same time. The Nawab is excited to be working with Om Raut again after Tanaji.

In a press release, Saif said, "I'm thrilled to be working with Omi dada again! He has a grand vision and the technical knowledge to really pull it off. He has taken me beyond the cutting edge of our cinema in the way he shot Tanhaji and this time he is taking us all further! It's a phenomenal project and I'm super thrilled to be a part of it! I look forward to clashing swords with the mighty Prabhas and to play a role that is electrifying and demonic!"
