Recently, it has been known that Rakul Preet is in talks with the makers for the role of Shurpanakha. The actress has been in talks with the filmmaker quite some time. However,  now it is clear that she is almost finalized for the role.

Shurpanakha is a vital character in Ramayana, as she is the one who becomes the reason for the rivalry between Ram and Ravana. If Rakul is finalized for the role, she will begin shooting for the same after her wedding with Jackky Bhagnani.

Ramayana is helmed by Nitesh Tiwari and will go on floors in March 2024.
