Directed by Nitesh Tiwar and produced by Allu Aravind, Ramayana stars Sai Pallavi as Sita alongside Hrithik Roshan who was supposed to be a part of the film and act as Ravana, while Ranbir as Lord Ram. Now, as per the latest bollywood news, Yash, popular for his portrayal of Rocky Bhai in the KGF Franchise, will replace Hrithik as he makes an exit from the film.
“Hrithik Roshan doesn’t want to play back-to-back negative roles. While he loved the script of Ramayan, he wants to be the hero now, as fans love him as a hero over a villain. After several rounds of discussions with Nitesh Tiwari and Madhu Mantena, he decided to take a step back,” Bollywood Hungama quoted its source as saying.
“Rocking Star Yash is on the lookout for a script. His work is managed by an agency run by Madhu Mantena, who feels that Yash fits the bill for Ravana. They have already initiated talks with Yash and the Rocking Star has shown good interest in the film. If all goes well, Ramayan will happen now with Ranbir Kapoor and Yash. The casting has now gone to a Pan-Indian level,” the source added.
