Unlike some rumours going round in the industry, Rohit Shetty had never approached Ranbir Kapoor to play the lead role in the movie. In fact Rohit Shetty and Ranbir are planning a different project together, whose detailshave not yet been divuged.
So for the role of Ram, Arjun's close friend Varun Dhawan has been approached, Karan Johar is in talks with the actor so within days the makers of this Ram Lakhan remake movie may announce officially as to who are the lead actors in the movie.
