HanuMan, starring Teja Sajja in the lead role, premiered earlier this year and became a massive hit. Following this success, rumors suggest that the makers of the film are considering casting either Chiranjeevi or Ram Charan as Lord Hanuman in the sequel, Jai Hanuman.

According to a recent report by Gulte, the film’s producer, Chaitanya Reddy, discussed the possibility of casting members of the Mega family for the iconic role.

Prior to the release of HanuMan this year, many fans had speculated that the makers were likely to bring in Chiranjeevi to play the role of lord Hanuman. However, the film did not disclose the character in the movie, leaving room for a major casting in the sequel.

With the reports flowing in, it seems that superstars like Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan are being eyed to play the role now. However, an official confirmation about the same is still left to be made.
