Exclusive: Hrithik Roshan To Play Rama In Madhu Mantena’s Ramayan?

Here  is  the  most sensational  casting coup of  the year.  Hrithik Roshan who  is currently wrapping up his role  as  the world-renowned mathematician Anand  Kumar  in a bio-pic  that  releases in July,  could well be  playing his first  mythological role very shortly .

In what  is possibly the most eyeball-grabbing  casting   in recent times Hrithik  is all set to be cast as  Lord Rama  in  the  250-crore  budgeted web series that producer  Madhu Mantena  is  currently processing.

Sources say  Hrithik is keen to play Lord Rama.

“He has always wanted  to play Marayadha Purushottam  Rama. In fact  some years ago Hrithik’s  father-in-law Sanjay  Khan was all set to make Ramayan with Hrithik as Rama.

 Mr Khan is  still keen  to  make Ramayan with Hrithik although Hrithik is  no  longer his son-in-law. There are talks  of Sanjay Khan reviving his Ramayan dream.

 It remains  to be seen which  of  the  two projects  Hrithik finally chooses.

Interestingly  Mantena wants  only Deepika Padukone as  Sita to Hrithik’s Rama. Not only is  the  jodi untried and  virgin-fresh it is also felt  by  all  the  creative people connected with  the  Ramayan project  that  no other actress but Deepika  is  suitable  for Sita’s role.

But first,  Hrithik  as Rama. This  could be the  role that Hrithik has been searching for to  escape his Krishh image.
