Ramayana was a popular TV show even before DD started with its reruns in 2020. However, after the rerun, it has become one of the most watched shows of all time. This has increased our hopes of getting a remake of it, may it be in the form of a movie or a serial. Though nothing is official as of yet, these are the actors we’d like to see in the remake.
Any actor who's going to fill the shoes of Arun Govil who portrayed Rama in the original Ramayan should have a calm demeanour and a strong personality to be able to pull it off. Hrithik Roshan, in our opinion, possesses such a personality and has successfully delivered meek yet powerful characters in the past.
Radhika Apte is an actor that is known for her choice of unconventional roles. Her portrayal of Sita with her unconventional acting skills would be an interesting combination to watch out for.
Laxman is a subservient brother and follows in the footsteps of his elder brother Rama. Rajkumar Rao with his calm and soothing tempo and raw acting skills would make a fine Laxman.
Any actor trying to play a character portrayed by Dara Singh needs to have a great physique and height, both of which Tiger Shroff has.
Rana Daggubatti has already played a similar role to that of Ravana in the Baahubali franchise so drawing parallels between the two seems only natural. Besides, Rana has the perfect personality to pull off a villain.
Though the two actors don’t look too much like each other, they have a similar face type. Both of them are fine actors and will do justice to the roles of Bharata and Shatrughna, the two younger brothers of Rama and Laxman.
The role of Dashrath, the King of Ayodhya, needs an actor who is not only a veteran but has an unmatched stature. Who better to play him than the legendary Amitabh Bachchan?
Just remember his role as Kancha Cheena in Agneepath (2012) and then imagine him as the powerful Kumbhakarna. There’s a striking resemblance between the two, no?
Vibhishana is Ravana’s brother who switched to Rama’s side for the sake of righteousness. This is a role that requires a seasoned actor like Ranveer Shorey. He’s played a hero and a villain both with ease.
The perfect temptress, isn’t she? Rekha has played similar roles in many movies and would be able to do justice to the role of Kaikeyi, one of the wives of Dashrath who made him exile Rama.
