Nitesh Tiwari’s upcoming mythological thriller, Ramayana has been creating a buzz on the internet for quite some time now. The film written by Sridhar Raghavan and produced by Madhu Mantena will be directed by  Nitesh Tiwari along with Mom director, Ravi Udaywar. Earlier the reports suggested that the film will star  Mahesh Babu as Ram, Deepika Padukone as Sita and Hrithik Roshan as Raavan. But as per the latest news, Ranbir Kapoor has now been approached to play the role of Ram.

A source close to the film’s development revealed that Mahesh Babu turned down Ram’s role as he was approached by SS Rajamouli for an ambitious project set in the African jungles. The makers then approached Ranbir Kapoor to play the role of Lord Rama. If Ranbir gets on board, then it will be really cool and interesting to see him pull a mythological character right?

As per a report on Peeping moon, a close source revealed that-

Nitesh Tiwari is looking for the best-in-class actor who can completely devote himself to the character of Ram, and he believes Ranbir Kapoor perfectly fits the bill as he has that charming presence Nitesh is specifically seeking for in an actor. Ranbir is thrilled about this offer and will take a call after the full narration. He hasn’t given his nod yet, however, it’s very likely that he would okay the project

The cast and story have already gotten me super excited. I can’t wait to know more details about this film and see who’s going to make it to the final star-cast list. Ramayana is expected to go on floors next year.
