In the realm of upcoming film ‘Ramayan,‘ the news of Ranbir Kapoor portraying the iconic character of Lord Ram garnered attention. However, Kangana Ranaut, the acclaimed actress, took to Instagram to express her disapproval of the casting, referring to Kapoor as a “slim white rat.” Reports had earlier surfaced, suggesting that the star couple Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor were set to portray the roles of Goddess Sita and Lord Ram in Nitesh Tiwari’s rendition of ‘Ramayana.’ Let’s delve into Kangana’s critical remarks and her views on the matter.
Kangana Ranaut, known for her unfiltered opinions, did not hold back as she voiced her thoughts on the casting choice for the film. In a scathing Instagram post, she expressed, “Recently, I have come across news about another Bollywood adaptation of Ramayana… where a certain slim white rat, who appears desperate for both a sun-kissed complexion and moral integrity (which he lacks, as he is infamous for engaging in nefarious underhanded PR tactics against nearly everyone in the industry), is now attempting to portray Lord Rama.”
The media reports also mentioned that the role of Raavan would be essayed by the southern superstar, Yash. Kangana raised her concerns about this casting as well. She further stated, “On the other hand, we have a young southern superstar, who is known for his self-made journey, his dedication to his family, and his traditional values.

In accordance with Valmiki ji’s description, this actor truly resembles Lord Rama in his complexion, demeanor, and facial features. It is surprising that he has been offered the role of Ravana. What kind of Kalyuga (era of moral decline) are we living in? No pale-looking druggie soy boy should portray Lord Rama. Jai Shri Ram.”
Kangana concluded her post by including a warning gif and emphatically stating, “If you strike me once, I will strike you until you are defeated! Do not dare to meddle with me; keep your distance!” Her fierce words left no doubt about her stance on the matter.
