Ram Charan`s recent visit to Mumbai sparked several rumours, including his alleged collaboration with Rajkumar Hirani. Amid speculations, a source close to the Telugu heartthrob confirmed that the rumours don`t hold any truth.
The source shared in a statement, “There is no news of Ram Charan signing a Bollywood project. He is busy with the work currently on his plate, and he has other priorities as well.”
Ram Charan visited Mumbai last week. He was observing the annual Ayyappa Deeksha and concluded it by visiting Siddhivinayak Temple. He offered prayers at the Ganpati temple. Soon after, he met cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Ram Charan was in Mumbai before leaving for Tuscany to attend Varun Tej`s wedding with Lavanya Tripathi.
Ram Charan made his Bollywood debut with the remake of Zanjeer in 2013. It was directed by Apoorva Lakhia and also starred Priyanka Chopra, Sanjay Dutt, Prakash Raj, Atul Kulkarni, and Mahie Gill.
