Mani Ratnam is making this film in Hindi and Tamil simultaneously. In Hindi version, Abhishek Bachchan will play Rama, while Vikram will be Ravana. On the other hand, in Tamil Vikram is Rama and Prithviraj is Ravana. Aishwarya Rai will play Sita in both versions. The Ranjitha-Nithyananda issue has its effects in all spheres of the film industry. One director who will be affected with the Ranjitha-Nithyananda blue film leakage is Mani Ratnam. The actress plays an important role in the Mani Ratnam directed Ravan. Ever since the video made its way to the television channels and news papers, the actress has been absconding. The Ravan unit, which is gearing up to release the film during april, may be affected now. Apparently, a few scenes involving the actress need to be shot, and this issue has the team in jitters, as Ranjitha remains untraceable. So the director is planning to replace the actress with some other.
