Nitesh Tiwari's latest film Chhichhore has yet again hit the right chord. After the super successful Dangal that released around three years ago, the director has delivered yet again with the Sushant Singh Rajput-Shraddha Kapoor starrer campus drama. Now, we hear he is working on his much ambitious project Ramayana. 

Says a source, "Allu Aravind, Namit Malhotra and Madhu Mantena have collaborated for the first time to make India’s most ambitious project and are producing Ramayana with Nitesh helming it." Recently while talking to Pinkvilla, he had exclaimed, "After Chhichhore, I'm going to do Ramayana which got announced sometime back. We are conceptualising right now. It's a trilogy that we are planning and we are trying to see the best possible way to make it."

Ask him if Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone have been locked in as Ram and Sita, he brushes the rumour aside. "We are still at the concept level. We haven't even thought of the casting." But another well placed source in the production revealed that it's indeed going to be the first time that Duggu and Dippy will share screen space. Not just that, they also have a popular superstar essaying the role of Ravana. 

The source revealed, "The makers have given the film a budget of Rs 600 crore which is also the highest ever that has been sanctioned for an Indian film. It will be released across India in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. So they have already bounced the idea off to Prabhas. The team wants the Baahubali star to come on board as Ravana because they feel he will add more personality to the character. He also has the build of Ravana and with Hrithik and Deepika playing Ram and Sita, it will be perfect casting, too. But the deal has not been locked. They have just initiated talks and Prabhas and his team will decide whether they want to do the film or not." But if this turns out to be true, it's going to be huge!

Hrithik is perfect for Ram and Deepika is perfect for Sita. Both pair will look too good together. I think Ranveer Singh could do the role of Ravan amazingly well.

Raavana is a very misunderstood and wrongly known character like many in Hindu mythology. He was a true devotee of Shiva and Durga. He infact wanted emancipation of his dynasty in hands of Ram, or lord Vishnu in different avatar. He looked upto Sita as mother and never touched her.It is his character that should shine brighter. If the director is able to show this side of Raavana in the movie, then I think Prabhas should take the role.

Prabhas should play ram and hrithik should laxman and rana should play ravan and tamanna should play sita as she was not tall

I think #rana dagubatti is the best for Ravana and prabhas is suit for Ram..

Take prabhas as rama.he is more suitable for rama.

Prabhas is more suitable for rama character. Because is having so much of love to the people. Prabhas will respect each other. His personality and height is more suitable for rama character. Then we have a huge success..

Prabhas should play Ram. Else, Hanuman. Definitely, not Ravan.

Villan character is not suitable for prabhas

Hrithik is very best and with parbha it's too good

Rajnikanth OR Prakash Raj Should Play Ravana Instead Of Prabhas whereas Prabhas Should Play Lord Hanuman

We love Prabhas more then Hrithik..Prabhas would be best suited for Ram

They can try jr Ntr or Rana or Yash for ravana. Spare prabhas please

Prabhas will be apt to play Ram....he has an endearing personality... & with his versatile acting skills he will excel as Ram.

Prabhas should be ram then it will be huge success to Indian film industry because prabhas has lovely soal like ram. Prabhas has huge fan following and respect in all industry

Prabhas should play Ram. More Indian and powerful personality.

Prabhas can do awesome acting of ravana but I don't wanna see him as ravana or as villain in RAMAYANA because I love RAMAYANA and MAHABHARTA so much

People will change their mindset towards ravana as a villain if that happens hehe

Hrithik is more handsome. Prabhas is more versatile and hot
