Media reports hint that Hrithik Roshan will be playing Lord Ram and Deepika Padukone could be playing Sita in Nitesh Tiwari’s mythological drama, Ramayana.
Interestingly, the report also suggests that the Super 30 actor has said yes to the film.
Helmed by Nitesh Tiwari and Ravi Udyawar, Ramayana will be shot in 3D and released in Tamil and Telugu as well.
In a media interview, Tiwari says:
“I am looking forward to work in Ramayana, something that I am really excited about.
Once done with Chhichhore, I will go back to start working for Ramayana.
It is a challenge for me as I have a sense of responsibility to bring the project in its true form of glory for the country.”
Produced by Allu Aravind, Namit Malhotra and Madhu Mantena, the makers are hoping to make this into a grand project.
Meanwhile, the additional reports also claim that producer Madhu Mantena insisted on casting Deepika Padukone as Sita opposite Hrithik Roshan.
If things work out, then it would be the biggest and happiest news for Hrithik and Deepika fans as they will be seen first-time together on-screen.
On the work front, Hrithik has a line-up of War, Krrish 4, while, Deepika will be seen in Chhapaak and ’83.
The last Ramayana (2010) was an animated movie with Sita voiced by Juhi Chawla and Ram by Manoj Bajpai.
