In a recent time Ramayana is the hot topic in Bollywood. Now, a buzz that Ranbir Kapoor who plays the role of Lord Ram will reportedly quit alcohol and meat for the film.
A source closed to Indiatoday, Kapoor will not be quitting alcohol and meat for the disguise but to be as pure as Rama in his role. The first part of the trilogy will center on Lord Ram and Sita, leading up to the conflict of Sita Haran.
The source mentioned, “While the film will be shot, Ranbir will abstain completely from drinking and eating meat. These are not things he would avoid just for his public image, but also, as a dedicated actor Ranbir wants to feel as pure and clean as Sri Rama. In any case, Ranbir is not into late nights and wild parties.”
Sai Pallavi has reportedly been roped in for the role of Sita. Earlier, Alia Bhatt was in talks for the role of Sita but she backed out earlier this year due to dates-related issues. Meanwhile, KGF star Yash is likely to play Ravana in Ramayana. However, there is no official announcement regarding this as of now.
On the other side, Ranbir Kapoor will be seen in Animal. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the film will also star Anil Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, Bobby Deol, and Tripti Dimri among others. The film is all set to release in theatres on December 1 in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
