Sunny Deol is reportedly in talks to join the cast of Nitesh Tiwari's Ramayana which also stars Ranbir Kapoor as Lord Ram, Sai Pallavi as Lady Sita and Yash as Ravana. As per a report in Pinkvilla, Deol may play the role of Hanuman in the film.

A source close to the development told the portal, “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 report also states that Tiwari may also collaborate with Deol on a spin-off film based on Lord Hanuman. “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,” added the source.

This adaptation of the Ramayana is being produced by Tiwari, Madhu Mantena, Namit Malhotra, and Allu Aravind. The film is likely to go on floors in early 2024.
