Adiploush mania is starting to dominate the box office. However, the film does not have strong reviews in Hindi-speaking countries. In fact, atheists and Ram Baktu flatly reject the films of Prabhas, Kriti Sanon and Saif Ali Khan. The Hindu Sena has filed a petition against Om Raut’s magnum opus for hurting Hindu sentiments and mocking the Ramayana.

But the actors, including Sanon, who plays Janaki, have received a lot of sympathy for pulling off such a bizarre film purely through acting. The performance of this hero panty actress has been praised by fans for doing the best she could with this weak script.

But did you know that Kriti Sanon was not originally chosen to play Janaki in this film? Casting Adiploosh went through many difficulties while searching for the perfect Sita. It was first reported that Anushka Sharma, who was on vacation and spending time with her newborn Vamika, would be back from Adipurush.

After ‘Zero’, Anushka was on vacation, but Pinkvilla reports that Anushka will be back from Adipurush. It is also said that Om Laut met with her, she liked his vision and she was excited to play Sita against Prabhas. However, nothing came of it, and the rumors quickly died down.

Next up to play Sita was Anushka Shetty. If Raut had pulled the Baahubali OG cast for his film, it would have been a casting scoop. But it would have been a bad move for Om Raut, as it would have been the hardest time to pull anything fresh out of their much-hyped chemistry. Anushka Shetty’s name was also quickly dropped from rumors and she has since moved on to another actress.

Mahanati actress Kiethi Suresh was approached for the role of Janaki opposite Prabhas. She accepted the offer and she was even ready to sign the dotted line. Keithy and Prabhas could have made a better couple. However, the actress dropped this project at the last minute in order to sign Rajinikanth’s film. Adipurush could have been her Bollywood debut.

Professionally, Kiethi Suresh has a busy schedule with Maamannan, Bora Shankar, Siren, Raghu Tanta and Revolver Rita. She was supposed to make her Hindi film debut in Ajay Devgan’s Maidan, but she dropped out after repeated delays. Anushka Sharma is completing the Juran Goswami biopic Chakda Express. She is Mr. Polishetty while Anushka Shetty is filming Miss Shetty.
