The upcoming Hindi film Raavan has become the much anticipated film of this year. It cats leading Bollywood stars including Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Vikram in the lead roles. However, supporting roles were performed by Govinda, Ravi Kishan, Nikhil Dwivedi, Tejaswini Kolhapure and Priyamani.

Raavan tells the story of a conflict between good and evil, between Dev and Beera, between Ram and Raavan.

Cast and Crew:

In the Tamil version, only few characters have been changed. The role of Raavan was played by Vikram. Prithviraj plays the character of Dev Prasad.


Academy Award winner, A. R. Rahman, is the main attraction of the film as the music score and soundtrack of the film has been composed by him. Gulzar has written the lyrics. The Hindi version of Raavan has featured 6 songs and an additional song that A. R. Rahman performed at the audio launch. T-Series has released the audio on April 24, 2010.

Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) restricted Raavan to release in Mysore:

Big Cinemas has got the distribution right for the Hindi version of Raavan film. As per rules, this company will distribute the film as many as possible. They demanded the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) to allow the film to be released at 48 theatres. Due to the existing policy of allowing non-Kannada films, it has been restricted by KFCC and will be released in only 24 theatres in one of the three distribution areas of Karnataka.

Mr. Vasant Kumar Patil is the President of KFCC. To protect the interest of local Kannada films, he has refused to accept the request from the Big Cinemas. He said,

"A decision has been taken to follow the existing policy of allowing non-Kannada films in a stipulated number of theatres,"

Old Mysore is located in the southern part of the state where the decision will be applied. Except it, the decision will not be imposed on the other distribution areas.

Big Cinemas is not happy with such kind of restriction as they thought that it will be released in more than 48 theatres as Raavan and its Tamil version have been made at a huge cost with different artists in the lead role.

However, KFCC has nothing to do except allowing the flick to be released in Mysore region only across twenty-four region theatres on June 18.

Raavan is a bilingual film as it has been made in two different languages of Hindi and Tamil. Now, these two versions are supposed to be released at the same time on June 18, 2010.

Abhishek Bachchan has got new hairstyle for Raavan:

Abhishek Bachchan’s new look was revealed in his upcoming movie Raavan. He was given new hairstyle for the character before start shooting the film at Kerala locations. There wasn’t any stylist but director, Mani Ratnam, himself who has given him this hairstyle. His hairstyle was named as ‘Beera’ as his character name in this film was Beera Munda.

This hairstyle has come as a result of a long-stand promise that Abhishek Bachchan gave Mani Ratnam during the shooting of Yuva.

Mani Ratnam wanted Abhishek Bachchan to cut his hair for a short crop for his character Lallan Singh in Yuva, but he has not agreed to cut his hair thinking about how it would look on his face and at the same time, he was worried whether his new hairstyle would affect the other project he was working on.

He kept his own hairstyle with a promise that one day he will allow Mani to cut his hair. The day came during the shooting of Raavan. Before start filming at the set of Kerala on the first day Raavan, Mani Ratnam cropped his hair.

He spends a lot of time dealing the look for his characters. He also had to decrease weight for Raavan.

Rensil D'Silva is not the writer of Raavan:

Famous script writer, Rensil D'Silva, is perhaps not happy as he has not got the writing credit for Raavan film. All the credit goes to director, Mani Ratnam, and his wife, Suhasini. His name has been deleted from the credits of Raavan.

Rensil was busy with Kurbaan, which was his first directorial film. However, it was neither hit nor flop. Kurbaan did not do well, but at the same time, it was not worse in showbiz.

Rensil D'Silva was the toast of tinsel town because of his two different roles. He was directing his debut film Kurbaan for Karan Johar. At the same time, he was busy in scripting Mani Ratnam's Raavan.

His credit in the industry has reduced because of the failure of Kurbaan in the box office. Veteran director, Mani Ratnam, and his wife, Suhasini, has been credit for the screenplay, completely eradicating Rensil's contribution to the writing.

Though he wrote the script ‘at one time’, he halfheartedly said that no one took his credit away. He had to stop writing Raavan and start shooting Kurbaan. He also admitted that final screenplay was written by Mani himself.

When it told that screenplay is credited to Mani Ratnam and his wife Suhasini, Rensil D'Silva did not disagree and said that they wrote the scrip together.

However, director and writer of this film, Mani Ratnam, remained unavailable for comment.

Rensil D'Silva was given credit for writing Rang De Basanti. According to a source familiar with both Mani and Rensil D'Silva's work said, "Rang De Basanti was taken away from writer Kamlesh Pandey and given to Rensil D'Silva. So, what happened with Raavan is poetic justice."

It is not clear whether Rensil is involved in the writing of Raavan. Will Rensil take legal action for getting his writing credit?

Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai in a hasty relationship in Raavan:

The upcoming Hindi film, Raavan, has brought together the most successful star couple, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai. They have been cast in the lead roles for the Hindi version Raavan.

Their off-screen love has never questioned. Even their on-screen love relationship is always praiseworthy. Now, fans are eagerly waiting to see their chemistry in Raavan, even if they aren’t couple in the movie.

No doubt, Raavan is an important project for Abhishek as it will turn out to be a “career defining” film for him. It could be another milestone like his previous film Guru.

Fans are accustomed to see them acting as a couple. But now, for the first time, in this film of Raavan, they will be shown in an impetuous love. Let’s see if it can attract the fans.

Abhishek was mind blowing. He plays the role of cruel, shrewd Raavan while Aishwarya acts as Sita whom he abducts and takes to jungle.

It will be interesting to see the real life couple to perform the different character where they were not portrait as couple.

Aishwarya Rai’s motherly instinct has come out in Raavan shooting:

Bollywood beauty, Aishwarya Rai, has shown her motherly instinct with a little incident during the shooting of her upcoming flick, Raavan.

Her motherly behavior has come out during the shooting for a scene in Mani Ratnam’s Raavan.

In the shooting spot, she saw a child artist got drenched from head to toe and that small girl was constantly shivering from cold. She immediately managed a thick blanket to wrap up the child to provide much needed warmth.

Her maternal behavior surprised all the entire cast and crew of this film. The little girl appreciated the generosity with a silent smile. Aishwarya Rai can please her fans showing benevolence attitude.

Raavan was unveiled in Cannes:

Raavan was unveiled at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival. Both the Hindi and Tamil versions will open in 58 countries. Mani Ratnam’s wife Suhasini, attended at the press conference of Raavan in Cannes and represented her husband. She was credited for script writer. She said that the film will help us to understand the grey parts that all of us have in us.

She thanked A.R. Rahman for his beautiful music. She also said that the music merged beautifully with the music. In fact, the music emphasized pictures.

Indian filmmaker, Mani Ratnam, will be honored with Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker Award at the 67th Venice Film Festival. The festival will start on September 1 and it will continue till September 11, 2010.

Marco Muller, Director of Venice Film Festival, gave the most important announcement before the launch of Mani’s ambitious project ‘Raavan.’ Muller has confirmed the media about the impending honor that will be bestowed upon the filmmaker later this year.
