Nitesh Tiwari has finally responded to these speculations regarding his film’s casting. Opening up about the same, Nitesh told Koimoi, “I have not yet started thinking about the cast yet. First, we are trying to get it right on papers, with our executions, and with our thought process and everything. We are still trying to get there.. baki baatein we’ll start with later.”
Thankfully, the director has not completely ruled out the possibilities of Deepika and Hrithik coming together. It would be a dream come true moment for their fans and followers if they indeed share screen space in this mythological drama.
The film is being planned to be made for a pan-India audience. It will be released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi and Gujarati. Also, it’s being reported that the film is mounted on a whopping budget of Rs. 500 crore. The makers are hoping to create a ‘Baahubali‘ kind of magic with the live-action film ‘Ramayana’.
