They share a common fandom as well. The movie lovers from the common fandom are quite excited to watch the duo together onscreen after Rakesh Roshan expressed his wish of seeing them together in one film. The dream soon turned out to be true after Dangal and Chhichhore fame Nitesh Tiwari announced the cinematic adaptation of the Indian epic, Ramayana.
As per rediff.com reports, Hrithik has been locked for portraying the character of Ravan while Ranbir will be seen as Lord Ram in the movie. The new version of Ramayana will be made at a whopping budget of Rs 750 crore.
Meanwhile, a recent report has emerged that the makers of Ramayana will soon go to the shooting floors soon.
As per the exclusive scoop of Bollywood Hungama, Ramayana will go on the floors in mid-2023. The makers will make an official announcement of the same this Diwali.
Moreover, the makers will also reveal the star cast and shoot schedule.
"Ramayana is among the biggest Indian films of all time and the makers have pulled off a casting coup by signing two of the biggest millennial stars - Hrithik Roshan and Ranbir Kapoor. Both the actors have agreed to be a part of this film and have tentatively blocked their calenders from the mid-next year for Ramayana," Bollywood Hungama quoted a close source as saying.
However, the source added, "The paperwork still remains and the same is expected to be done once Nitesh Tiwari gives a final narration of his Ramayana. It will be high on VFX, staying true to the roots of Ramayana."
If all goes as planned, the team will go to the floors by June 2023.
On the work front, Hrithik is currently gearing up for the release of Vikram Vedha and is also prepping up for Fighter opposite Deepika Padukone.
On the other hand, Ranbir is quite busy with Shamshera promotions and fans are anticipating Brahmastra opposite Alia Bhatt, which is up for release in September.
