After the Adipurush fiasco, speculations about director Nitesh Tiwari’s ambitious project based on the epic Ramayana have been buzzing around the internet. While official announcements are yet to be made.
Also the cast of the film not finalized yet, But there have also been unconfirmed reports about Ranbir Kapoor, Sai Pallavi and Yash being cast in the roles of Rama, Sita and Raavan respectively.
A source close to the project told to Pinkvilla, “Nitesh Tiwari and team have been working actively on creating the world of Ramayana and the blueprint is finally all ready. The VFX plates are prepared by the Oscar Winning Company, DNEG and it’s a world that would blow away the minds of audiences. However, the strength of Ramayana won’t be the visual but the simplistic storytelling and compelling inter-character emotions,”
“Ranbir and Sai will start shooting for the film around the month of February 2024. The first part of the trilogy will focus more on Lord Ram and Sita, leading towards the conflict of Sita Haran. The duo will be shooting for the film from February till August 2024, before calling it a wrap for Ramayana: Part One,” the source informed to PV.
The source also added that “Yash, who plays Ravana in the film, will shoot for his portions around July 2024. He has a rather extended appearance in Ramayana: Part One, however, his character will dominate the proceedings in the second part, which is set in Sri Lanka. He has allotted 15 days to shoot for Ramayana: Part One.”
