South’s superstar Mahesh Babu has turned down the offer of Hrithik Roshan’s mega-budget upcoming film ‘Ramayana’. Actually, filmmaker Madhu Mantena also announced the film ‘Ramayana 3D’ with Nitish Tiwari. Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone will be seen together in ‘Ramayana’. At the same time, the makers also offered ‘Ramayana’ to South’s superstar Mahesh Babu. But, now reports are coming that Mahesh Babu has refused to do Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Ramayana’.
A source close to this said, “Madhu Mantena and Nitish Tiwari are planning to start shooting for ‘Ramayana’ from the middle of 2022 next year. But Mahesh Babu’s dates during this period are already due to filmmaker SS Rajamouli. So it is clear that Mahesh Babu has preferred to do Rajamouli’s film over Ramayan.” Hrithik will play the role of Ravana in Madhu Mantena’s Ramayana. Whereas Deepika will be seen in the role of Sita Maa. Now after Mahesh Babu’s refusal, the makers are looking for another actor to play Lord Ram.
