Several films based on Hindu mythology are now in the works in Bollywood. The Ramayan adaption by filmmaker Madhu Mantena is the most anticipated of them all. Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone, and Mahesh Babu were believed to be cast in the film. This would have been one of the most significant collaborations in Indian movie history, but it seems this is not going to happen.
According to the latest reports, Mahesh Babu has declined the role of Lord Ram in this film. He made the decision after being forced to choose between working on this project and SS Rajamauli’s next.
A source close to the development shared, “Madhu and Nitesh are looking to shoot for Ramayana from mid-2022 and the dates coincide with the biggest filmmaker of India, SS Rajamouli’s next. It was an obvious choice for Mahesh to choose Rajamouli over the rendition of Ramayana.”
Madhu’s ‘Ramayan’ has suffered a setback as a result of this. The casting of Hrithik and Deepika is also totally speculative, as no official announcement has been made. In this film, Hrithik Roshan will play Raavan and Deepika Padukone will play Sita. Now that Mahesh Babu has left the project, the producers must find a good actor to replace him.
