Sunny Deol in talks to play Hanuman in Nitesh Tiwari’s ‘Ramayana’: Report

Actor Sunny Deol has reportedly been approached to play Hanuman in Nitesh Tiwari’s upcoming directorial. While nothing has been confirmed yet, reports suggest that Sunny has shown interest in doing the part.


Pinkvilla reported that Sunny showed interest in playing Hanuman especially after he came to know that the makers were planning to make a spin-off on Hanuman. The three-part Ramayana features Yash as Ravan, Ranbir as Lord Ram and Sai Pallavi as Sita.

“Hanuman stands for strength and there’s no one better than Sunny Deol in the Indian film industry to justify what Bajrangbali stands for. The actor has shown interest in being a part of Nitesh Tiwari’s rendition of Ramayana and is also excited to play the part of Lord Hanuman. However, it’s still early stages of discussion,” the publication quoted a source as saying.


“The Ramayana is just a small part of Lord Hanuman’s life, and there are many other facets to the story. Nitesh wants to explore that with a standalone film on Lord Hanuman. Everything needs to fall in place – from the date of the shoot to the commitment for the franchise spin-offs and the financial structure,” the said source added.

Bankrolled by Nitesh, Madhu Mantena, Namit Malhotra, and Allu Aravind, the Ramayana trilogy promises to be an exciting addition to the cinematic versions of the Hindu epic.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Sunny Deol was last seen in the blockbuster Gadar 2.
