The much awaited film of the year, Raavan, is knocking at the door. Fans around the world have already started counting down the time when it will be released.

There is no big difference between the versions except the casts. In Raavan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Vikram plays the lead roles while Govinda, Ravi Kishan, Nikhil Dwivedi, Tejaswini Kolhapure and Priyamani plays the key supporting roles.

In Tamil version, Vikram plays the role of Veera. Aishwarya Rai will be seen doing the same character what she does in Hindi version. However, Prithviraj Sukumaran replaces Vikram for the role of police officer Dev.
Academy Award winner, AR Rahman, composed the music and the soundtrack in both versions. Audio of the film was launched on 24 April 2010 by T-Series.
