Telugu director Babu had approached Nayanthara to play Sita in the film Sri Ramajayam. He had earlier signed up Bala Krishna to play lord Rama in the film.
When various women’s organizations came to know of the director’s decision to cast Nayan as Sita, they decided to call for an agitation. According to several women’s organizations, Nayan should not be considered for the role as she is having an illicit relationship with a married man – Prabhu Deva.
Sensing trouble, Babu has decided to cast another popular actress and is now said to be in talks with her.
