Lara on if she will play Kaikeyi in Ramayana

Lara said, “I am hearing it a lot as well. I am leaving the rumours out there. I also like reading and hearing about them, so please continue. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of Ramayana? There were so many characters I would have loved to play if it was offered to me – Surpanakha, Mandodari, I am playing them all (laughs).”

Arun Govil's photos were also leaked from the sets

Along with Lara and Sheeba, pictures of Arun Govil were also leaked from the sets. Arun, known for playing the role of Ram in Ramanand Sagar’s iconic Doordarshan show Ramayan, will be seen as King Dashrath in Nitesh's Ramayana. Arun was seen interacting with some young boys on sets, seemingly young Ram and his brothers. He sported a long beard and wore mukut (crown) on his head.
