What’s the buzz about

Last week, several reports stated that Ranveer has had a tiff with the makers of Rakshas. A report claimed that the “actor abruptly opted out of the film after shooting for a mere 3 days”, with one stating that Ranveer walked out of the film without any explanation.

One report quoted a source stating that Ranveer was the one who was after Prasanth to make this film. The filmmaker wanted to start a Telugu film after Hanu-Man, but “he decided to put that on hold and pursue Rakshas after seeing Ranveer’s enthusiasm”.

According to Pinkvilla, Rakshas is touted to be a period film set in the pre-Independence era with a mythological background.

Ranveer's projects

Ranveer will be seen reprising his role of Simmba in Rohit Shetty's cop drama Singham Again. It comes with an ensemble cast including names such as Deepika Padukone, Ajay Devg n, Akshay Kumar, Tiger Shroff and Kareena Kapoor. Ranveer will also star in Farhan Akhtar's Don 3. He is yet to start shooting for the film, which is slated to release in 2025.
