Lara Dutta sets the record straight Kaikeyi role in Ramayana revealed : “Who wouldn’t want to be a part of Ramayana ?”

en Bollywood News Lara Dutta sets the record straight Kaikeyi role in Ramayana revealed : “Who wouldn’t want to be a part of Ramayana ?”

The rumors around Lara Dutta taking the character of Kaikeyi began to circulate after a series of images from the sets of Ramayana went viral.

"Nitesh Tiwari's forthcoming film Ramayana is making all the right noises. The film stars Ranbir Kapoor as Lord Rama. Lara Dutta, who is supposed to play Kaikeyi (Lord Rama's stepmother) in the film, recently addressed the rumors. In a chat with IndianExpress.com, Lara Dutta said, “I am hearing it a lot as well. I am leaving the rumours out there. I also like reading and hearing about them so please continue. Who wouldn't want to be a part of Ramayana? There were so many characters I would have loved to play if it was offered to me – Surpanakha, Mandodari, I am playing them all (laughs).”

Along with Lara and Sheeba, images of Arun Govil were leaked off the shoot. Arun, who played Ram in Ramanand Sagar's renowned Doordarshan drama Ramayan, will portray King Dashrath in Nitesh's Ramayana. Arun was seen chatting with several young boys on site, who appeared to be little Ram and his brothers. He had a lengthy beard and wore a mukut (crown) on his head.

Nitesh Tiwari has began filming Ramayana, which stars Ranbir Kapoor as Lord Ram, Sai Pallavi as Sita, Sunny Deol as Hanuman, and Yash reportedly as Ravana. While there is no official confirmation, ANI reports that Bobby Deol has been contacted to portray Kumbhkaran. There are also reports that Vijay Sethupathi may play Raavan's younger brother, Vibhishan. The first installment of the Ramayana trilogy is slated to be released around Diwali 2025.
