Ranbir Vs Mahesh Babu:

Mahesh Babu or Ranbir Kapoor, who will play Lord Ram
Mahesh Babu or Ranbir Kapoor, who will play Lord Ram

It is going to be biggest of all battles between two top stars for landing in a crazy role in a pan-India project. Senior producer Madhu Mantena, who has good footing in not just Telugu film industry but also in Bollywood is planning to produce Ramayana movie. Dangal fame Nitesh Tiwari is directing this big budget mythological movie. Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan has given his consent to act in the role of demon king Ravana, turning the project into a crazy one right from the beginning. Now the makers of Ramayana are in hunt for the actor for lead role of Srirama. According to the sources close to the movie makers, it is said that either Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor or south Superstar Mahesh Babu may be roped in for the role.

Producer Madhu Mantena is in talks with both Mahesh Babu and Ranbir Kapoor. While both the stars are said to be quite impressed with the idea of playing lord Rama, they are said to be stuck with dates issues. Mahesh Babu is gearing up for SS Rajamouli’s new flick and is said to be working in how to fit Ramayana in his schedule. Producer Madhu Mantena is said to be determined in roping in a star who can have pan-India appeal, as Ramayana is made on a big scale and budget and therefore keen on roping on Mahesh Babu, as he can appeal to audience across languages in South India. However Mahesh Babu is yet to say ‘yes’ though he is impressed with the offer, due to prior commitments. Even Ranbir Kapoor is also said to be in the same position as Mahesh Babu.
