Hrithik Roshan and Ranbir Kapoor were seen together on Saturday, and the media reported that they were at producer Jackky Bhagnani’s office. The visit sparked a lot of speculation, with fans of both stars wondering if Jackky is working on a two-hero film with them. However, reports revealed that the duo paid a visit to Namit Malhotra’s office and held a closed-door meeting with Namit, Madhu Mantena, and director Nitesh Tiwari about the epic Ramayana.
For those unfamiliar, Madhu Mantena, Allu Arvind, and Namit Malhora produce Ramayana, with Nitesh Tiwari and Ravi Udyawar serving as directors. “This was among their first joint meeting with Hrithik Roshan and Ranbir Kapoor, who play Raavaan and Ram respectively. They discussed the massive vision of this project and even the tentative plans of taking it on floors sometime in the second half of next year,” a source was quoted as saying by Pinkvilla.
While Ram and Ravana have been cast, the team has yet to find an actress who will play Sita.
In an interview, producer Madhu Mantena stated that an announcement about the cast of Ramayana would be made around Diwali, however according to our source, this may be delayed. “The team wants to make a massive announcement with a creative featuring the three principal characters – Ram, Ravana and Sita. Hrithik will be off to Abu Dhabi for the shoot of Vikram Vedha within a fortnight, whereas Ranbir too will gear up to complete director Luv Ranjan’s next, followed by the final 10-day shoot of Brahmastra. Before they get going with other projects, the creative team wanted to meet to discuss some basic stuff around Ramayana.”
