Mahesh Babu approached to play Ram

Madhu Mantena’s ‘Ramayana 3D’ has been making waves for quite a while now. According to rumours, the project has been allotted a budget of Rs. 300 crore and would star Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone in the lead.

Later, it was said that Hrithik wouldn’t be playing the role of Ram but the role of the infamous Raavan. The latest development suggests that Madhu may have finally found his Ram.

A report in a leading daily has claimed that the producer is looking to bring in Mahesh Babu to play the character of Lord Rama. The report claims that the team was looking for someone who could bring innocence to the character.

Initially Prabhas was approached for the role but he’s already playing the character in Om Raut’s ‘Adipurush’. According to the grapevine, Madhu was shocked when Om Raut announced ‘Adipurush’ with Prabhas. He immediately got his financiers to up the ante on ‘Ramayana 3D’. Mahesh Babu, on the other hand, has liked the script but is yet to give his nod to the project. If these rumours do hold true, then we’re in for one hell of a cinematic experience.
