Asked if he is part of the remake, Ranveer said: "It's not true, not right now. I have seen Magadheera and I was absolutely blown away by it. I think Ram Charan is an outstanding talent. But no, I am not doing Magadheera right now," added the 27-year-old on Tuesday at the launch of a special edition of Mills & Boon featuring the poster of Ranveer and Sonakshi Sinha's Lootera on the cover.
The Hindi remake was reportedly to be produced by Phantom Group, a company by Anurag Kashyap, Vikas Bahl, Madhu Mantena and Vikramaditya Motwane. Directed by S.S. Rajamouli, the 2009-superhit Magadheera is a historical drama romance film and starred Kajal Agarwal opposite Ram Charan.
It was dubbed in Malayalam and released as Dheera - The Warrior, and in Tamil as Maveeran.
