The much-awaited epic film Ramayana, directed by Nitesh Tiwari, has finally found its Sita. Contrary to the recent rumours that Janhvi Kapoor has replaced Sai Pallavi in the role, the makers have confirmed that the south Indian actress will be playing the divine consort of Lord Ram, portrayed by Ranbir Kapoor.
“While Ranbir Kapoor plays the part of Lord Ram, Sai Pallavi is cast to play Sita, Sunny Deol will be seen as Hauman and Yash is playing Raavan in Ramayana. The pre-production and prep work has begun as the makers are set to take the film on floors in March 2024,” a source told on condition of anonymity.
It Was Alia Or Sai Pallavi, Janhvi Was Never Approached
When asked about Janhvi Kapoor’s involvement in the film, the source reacted aggressively, “Nope, that’s absolutely false. People with vested interest are trying to create confusion around the casting in the media and industry. Janhvi Kapoor was never approached for the part of Sita in Ramayana. It was always the choice between Alia Bhatt and Sai Pallavi,” the source told further.
Core Cast Of Ramayana Is Locked
The source also added that Sai Pallavi has already signed the contract and will start shooting for the film soon. She will be joining the star-studded cast that includes Yash as Ravana, Sunny Deol as Hanuman, and Vijay Sethupathi as Vibhishan. The film is expected to be a grand spectacle with high-end visual effects and a lavish budget.
Ramayana is one of the most anticipated films of the year, as it will bring to life the timeless epic that has inspired generations of Indians. The film will be released in multiple languages and will cater to a global audience.
Ramayana: Part One releases during the Diwali 2025 weekend. The makers will wrap up shooting for the film around July 2024, followed by a year long post production process.
