It was later reported that Ranveer Singh and Prasanth Varma’s first collaboration, titled 'Rakshas,' will begin filming in July 2024, A source revealed to Pinkvilla that, “Ranveer had travelled to Hyderabad in April for a photo shoot to announce the film. While all the plans were set, the official announcement has now hit a roadblock. Ranveer Singh will no longer be a part of Prashanth Varma’s Rakshas. They have amicably parted ways due to creative differences.”

“They were exploring and deciding several solutions, but they have decided to move on now with the promise of collaborating in the near future.” The source further added.
