Ever since Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar announced their association for the remake of the film "Ram Lakhan", speculations regarding the cast have been doing the rounds.

Earlier there were rumours that Varun Dhawan-Sidharth Malhotra or Ranveer Singh-Arjun Kapoor will be playing the lead roles.

However, latest reports suggest that Hrithik Roshan and Abhishek Bachchan have been roped in to play the central characters.

According to Filmfare, Hrithik will be reprising Anil Kapoor's role as Lakhan while Abhishek will play Ram, originally played by Jackie Shroff.

While no confirmation has been made by the actors or the makers, it appears Hrithik and Abhishek will be sharing screen space for the first time after "Main Prem Ki Deewani Hoon" (2003).

As for the female lead, Urvashi Rautela of "Love Dose" song fame was reportedly said to have been approached to play the role, originally played by Madhuri Dixit Nene.

Apparently, Karan's Dharma productions has bought the production rights of Subhash Ghai's "Ram Lakhan" (1989) for a whopping Rs 5 crore. Ghai will also co-produce the remake of the comedy drama along with Karan.

Meanwhile, Hrithik's recent video "Dheere Dheere se" along with Sonam Kapoor has turned out to be a huge success. The honey-eyed actor is also busy shooting for Ashutosh Gowariker's period drama "Mohenjo Daro".

On the other hand, Abhishek's latest release "All is Well" along with Rishi Kapoor has done fairly well at the box office.
