Following the success of Animal, it was recently reported that the makers of Nitesh Tiwari's Ramayana approached Bobby for a role in the film. The media report suggested that Bobby was offered the role of Kumbhkaran in Ramayana.

The netizen met Ranbir at the airport and during the immigration queue, he briefly interacted with him. During this conversation, Kapoor confirmed his upcoming movie is Nitesh Tiwari's film. However, the user didn't mention details about the star cast.
