Ram is on a mission to find Sita and propose his love.
The film became a big hit after winning the hearts of the Tamil and Telugu audiences. Recently, Dulquer spoke candidly about whether fans would be able to see a remake or sequel of the movie at the Sita Ramam success meet which took place in Mumbai.
Speaking about who he would like to see in Sita Ramam remake and the possibility of its sequel, Dulquer Salmaan said, “Even before I became an actor, I knew then if there is classic film, a film is really loved and it’s a huge hit, not to touch it. We all genuinely believed, we hoped that Sita Ramam would be an epic, a classic film but we were not sure. And in not being sure we put extra effort, we put our heart and soul and blood and sweat in the film because beyond the hope you put your heart into the film. I don’t think it’s a film that can be made again.”
