Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor Khan has come under fire for demanding INR 120 million to play the role of Sita in an upcoming Hindu mythology film Sita – The Incarnation.

Twitter users accused the Kabhi Khushi and Kabhie Gham star for hurting the sentiments of the religious community.

#BoycottKareenaKhan began trending on Twitter as well. They called for the actor's replacement for the film.

They also said she was following in the footsteps of her husband Saif Ali Khan, who upset Hindus with his film titled Tandav.

Sita – The Incarnation will tell the story of Ramayana from her point of view. The multi-language film is slated to be released in 2022.

Alaukik Desai, the writer and director, had earlier refused that Kareena was approached for the role.
