Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan might play the much revered god, Hanuman, along side actor Keanu Reeves who is set to play Lord Ram in the Hollywood version of the epic Ramayana.

The Speed star has been approached to play the character of Lord Ram in the movie based on the mythological character 'Hanuman' and talks are on to cast Aamir Khan in the title role, reported BBC.

The film to be directed by Chuck Russell of The Mask fame, will be produced by NRI producer Uru Patel who came up with the idea of making a film based on Hanuman.

The Dark Knight actor Gary Oldman has reportedly been approached to play the evil Ravana in the movie.

Actress Shilpa Shetty was approached to play the role of Sita, but reports suggest that she has already opted out. Search is still on to find an international face to act as the female lead opposite Keanu Reeves.

Shooting is reportedly expected to start towards the end of this year in Rajasthan.
