Madhu Mantena, a filmmaker, is eager to collaborate with Nitesh Tiwari to bring the great Ramayana tale to life on the big screen. According to reports, the team is expected to begin shooting in the middle of 2022. Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone have been cast in the parts of Sita and Raavan, respectively. According to reports, the ‘Prince of Tollywood’ Mahesh Babu has been invited to portray Lord Ram in the Ramayana. It was also rumored that the actor had given the film his blessing, which piqued the interest of fans and cinema enthusiasts interest. However, nothing is occurring since events have taken a different path.
According to a source close to the film, Mahesh Babu has turned down the role of Lord Ram in the Ramayana. SS Rajamouli is the explanation behind this. “Mahesh was committed to working on a project with SS Rajamouli. Thus he passed on Ramayana.” The situation had progressed to the point that Rajamouli was given precedence over Mahesh. “Why not?” said the source.
