Fans were in for a ride when the news about Ramayana’s revival did the rounds. Filmmakers Nitesh Tiwari of Dangal fame and Ravi Udyawar, who directed Mom are coming together to helm a 3D version of Ramayana. With an estimated budget of Rs 500 crore, this will be a live-action trilogy in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. It will be produced by Madhu Mantena, Allu Aravind and Namit Malhotra, the project has been a work in progress for the past three years. A statement read, “Ramayana’ will be made with actors from Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Gujarati and Punjabi film industries as the makers are targeting a pan-India as well as a global audience.” In fact, the buzz was off the roof when reports about Nayanthara being roped for the part of Sita.
Soon more names emerged and it mania grew stronger. If you haven’t heard already, inklings about Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone as Ram and Sita have made the headlines and honestly, we couldn’t be more thrilled. Like that was not enough, it is being said the makers are toying with the idea of casting Prabhas as Raavan! You heard that right but we can’t help but think of more names that could fit the bill! In fact, we are here to bounce the same names off you and who knows? Maybe the makers are listening. Cutting to the chase, apart from Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Suneil Shetty and Ranveer Singh are the running contenders for us! But who would you vote for? Cast it here and let us know!
Ramayana will be made with actors from Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Gujarati and Punjabi film industries as the makers are targeting a pan-India as well as a global audience and we can’t wait to see how this pans out! It is also being speculated that the makers may opt for simultaneous shooting instead of dubbing in multiple languages. However, an official confirmation is waited for. This project on Ramayana was in the pipeline since 2018 and never took off. After much wait, the project was finally announced some time ago.
