While Om Raut's version of Ramayana namely Adipurush is receiving a lot of flak over its poor VFX and objectionable dialogues, let's focus our attention to Nitesh Tiwari's Ramayana which is rumoured  to be the biggest casting coup ever. A lot has been spoken and written about Tiwari's upcoming mythological drama and its casting, but is there any reality to these goss. Case in point, we recently bumped into a few tweets which claim that Yash rejected role of Ravana in Nitesh's epic because speculated leads Alia Bhatt-Ranbir Kapoor allegedly eat 'beef'. Yash in Nitesh Tiwari's Ramayana? KGF Star in Talks to Play Raavan, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt to Play Main Leads - Reports.

Having said that, as per multiple reports, KGF star has not turned down Ramayana and might be a part of the magnum opus. So, the claim that the Kannada star rejected the role because of his two co-leads, who themselves aren't confirmed yet, have dietary likings that don't bode well with certain religious sections, is unvalidated. Recently, an internal independent industry source was quoted saying, "the reports of Yash not doing Ramayana are absolutely baseless. Please wait for one of the biggest casting coups to be announced when the Ramayana team officially does it." Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt Cast As Ram-Sita in Nitesh Tiwari’s Ramayana- Reports.

Yash Rejected Ramayana Because of 'Beef'?

Yash Has Not Rejected Ramayana:

Also, as per Pinkvilla, Nitesh Tiwari's Ramayana will go on floors in December this year, with Ranbir as Ram, Alia as Sita and Yash as Lankesh. The film is said to be produced by Allu Aravind, Madhu Mantena and Namit Malhotra. Fingers crossed!
