Kareena Kapoor Sita Controversy: Right wing group Bajrang Dal submitted a memorandum in Nagpur, in reference to the alleged news about the casting of actor Kareena Kapoor Khan in the role of Sita for an upcoming project. Handing their memorandum to Nagpur Zila Adhikari the group warned of protests if such a film was ever made, with Khan in it.
According to a report by TOI, the memorandum contains several images of Kapoor Khan- in a bikini, visiting Ajmer Sharif and even an image in which her face has been morphed to look like that of Shurpanakha. “We strongly oppose this film. If this film is made, then if will face strong resistance,” said one party member.
What’s the controversy about?
Actor Kareena Kapoor Khan is facing threats of boycott on social media after rumours began to do rounds that she was being cast in the role of Sita in an upcoming film and was asking fee of 12 crore rupees for the project. While there has been no confirmation about the said film or its supposed casting, Khan was trolled through the weekend for demanding such a high fees to play such a “revered” character.
