Bollywood biggies Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone have given various blockbusters like ZNMD and Ram Leela. But throughout their careers, they never got a chance to work together as co-stars. According to the latest reports, we might get to see these megastars’ share screen for Siddharth Anand’s next titled Fighter.
Mythological drama in works?
Moreover, the buzz was going around that these two are the frontrunners for playing Ram and Sita in Madhu Mantena’s 3D Ramayan. But Filmfare contradicted this statement. They went on to reveal that this news isn’t true. According to them, the actor (popularly referred to as a Greek God) won’t be playing Ram’s role but that of Ravan!
According to various sources, Mantena’s Ramayan is budgeted at a price as high as 300 crores! Moreover, ‘Dangal’ fame Nitesh Tiwari is expected to direct the same. Since the film is of grand stature, Mantena might release it in 2 parts.
Adipurush: A similar story?
It’s interesting to note that T-Series is also producing Adipurush, where popular south actor Prabhas will be seen playing Ram and Kriti Sanon will be essaying the role of Sita. In contrast, Saif Ali Khan has been roped in to play Ravan. While both of them will most probably be subjected to comparison, they’ll also be seen together in a remake of ‘Vikram Vedha.’
So if everything goes according to plan, we might get to see this highly anticipated Jodi work together for a Bollywood film.
