Mumbai: “Chennai Express” fame actor Nikitin Dheer is in talks to play Raavan in the upcoming TV show “Sankatmochan Mahabali Hanuman”.

Keeping in mind Nikitin's tall and brawny physique, the makers have approached the actor to take on the crucial role of Raavan, said a source.

Nikitin, who has mostly played negative roles in films like “Jodhaa Akbar”, “Ready” and “Dabangg 2”, was last seen on the small screen in “Khatron Ke Khiladi”.

The titular character in the show, which will be aired on Sony Entertainment Television, is played by Nirbhay Wadhwa.
