Ranveer Singh and Prashanth Varma part ways from Rakshas citing creative differences; release official statement: “Not the ideal time for this project”

Mythri Movie Makers acknowledged that "everyone's intentions were right," but sometimes things "aren't meant to be at that time."

Ranveer Singh's much-anticipated collaboration with Mythri Movie Makers for the mythological drama Rakshas has been shelved. The project, directed by Prasanth Varma of Hanuman fame, was touted as a grand spectacle. However, in a surprising turn of events, Singh decided to exit the film. Previously, Bollywood Hungama reported that Singh's discomfort stemmed from a brief promo shoot in Hyderabad. A source claimed, "He wasn't able to picture himself in the filmmaking format of South Cinema." Singh reportedly returned to Mumbai early, citing personal reasons, before informing the makers of his decision. However, the official confirmation has come from the studio citing creative differences as the real reason.

This came as a shock to the production house, which had invested heavily in pre-production and a promotional shoot. Sources close to the producers indicated attempts to salvage the project, but Singh remained firm in his decision. However, official statements from Singh, Varma, and Mythri Movie Makers paint a different picture. They acknowledge "creative differences" but emphasize an amicable parting.

Ranveer Singh stated, "Prasanth is a very special talent... Hopefully, we will collaborate on something exciting in the future." Varma echoed the sentiment, praising Singh's talent and expressing hope for a future collaboration.

Mythri Movie Makers acknowledged that "everyone's intentions were right," but sometimes things "aren't meant to be at that time." Both parties have pledged to work together on future projects.

A source previously told Bollywood Hungama, "Ranveer has shot for a promo in Hyderabad for the announcement of the film and it's through the shoot of the promo that he realized that the energies are not aligning. He was not able to picture himself in the filmmaking format of South Cinema. He came back to Mumbai ahead of schedule citing personal issues and it's on returning to the city from the sets halfway that he informed the makers about his decision of stepping back from the film."

The decision took the makers by shock as they were all gearing up to launch the film in a mega way. "While all the energies were aligned, the report has dropped like a bomb to the makers. They are shell shocked and wondering if there is a way to reconcile with Ranveer Singh on the film, as a lot of money has already been invested in promo shoot and pre-production," a source close to the producers shared with us.

Meanwhile, Ranveer Singh has Rohit Shetty's Singham Again, Aditya Dhar's Dhurandhar and Farhan Akhtar's Don 3.
