Ranbir Kapoor, Sai Pallavi and Yash to begin ‘Ramayana’ shoot in 2024; Here’s everything you need to know

Nitesh Tiwari’s Ramayana will reportedly star Ranbir Kapoor as Lord Ram, Sai Pallavi as Sita and Yash as Raavan. According to a recent Pinkvilla report, the epic will be released in the second half of 2025 and Nitesh is planning to start shooting his movie based on the Hindu epic in February/March 2024. Yash will join the Ramayana team in July, after completing a major chunk of his next upcoming film, Toxic.

A source close to the development said to the portal, “The entire world of Ramayana has been created by Nitesh Tiwari and the National Award-Winning Filmmaker is all set to take the film on floors in March next year. The world of Ramayana has been designed by Oscar Winning VFX company, DNEG, who is also producing this epic. The makers intend to introduce a new technology of filmmaking with Ramayana, and the entire test run of the shoot has been conducted multiple times. Right from 3D scans to look tests – all the aspects of pre-production have been concluded with the three leads – Ranbir Kapoor, Sai Pallavi and Yash.”

Part one features an extended appearance by KGF’s Yash, while part two follows the story of his Raavan character. Earlier in June, it was reported that the actor rejected the role of Raavan in Nitesh Tiwari’s Ramayana because he was ‘very mindful of what his fans want.’ Furthermore, Ranbir is likely to visit the DNEG office in Los Angeles early next year because of Ramayana pre-production.

The source shared “Yash has an extended appearance in Ramayana: Part One, which is more of a story building of Ram and Sita with character introduction of Hanuman. The second part will chronicle the arc of Raavan’s character and the actor is excited to enter into this auspicious world of Nitesh Tiwari. Yash was bowled over by the visuals and the purity with which Nitesh intends to retell Ramayana to the audience today… There is some tech rehearsal expected to take place in LA in January 2024 and RK will be off to the US for a couple of weeks. It’s essentially for pre-viz.”

Part One of the Ramayana trilogy will reportedly be released in the second half of 2025, and the makers have been in talks with actor Sunny Deol to portray Hanuman. However, the actor has yet to say yes to the project.
