The Ramayana project is reportedly planned as a trilogy, delving into the Indian Epic. According to the latest report, after an extended pre-production phase, the makers are now prepared to start production. The initial instalment of the trilogy will primarily centre around Lord Ram and Sita, building up to the Sita-haran conflict.

Ranbir Kapoor and Sai Pallavi are scheduled to film this part of the series from February to August 2024, concluding it as Ramayana: Part One. Additionally, Yash, portraying Ravana, will commence shooting for his scenes in July 2024, as per the source. According to Pinkvilla, all three main actors have completed their respective look tests for the project. 

It was earlier reported that Bhatt had signed the film to play the central character Sita, opposite Ranbir Kapoor who is set to play Ram. However, later reports claimed that Bhatt has walked out of Nitesh Tiwari's ambitious film project.

Ramayan is said to be one of the biggest projects of Bollywood as the film will be divided into three parts retelling the tale of the Hindu epic Ramayan with visually compelling storytelling. 

As per the reports by Pinkvilla, the sources have revealed Bhatt will no longer be part of the film as the collaboration between the filmmakers and Bhatt's work commitments did not match as there have been some date issues. However, there have been no official announcements made confirming the news. 

There have been issues with the casting of the film for a long time as many actors were not willing to take up the roles in the film. Hrithik Roshan was earlier approached for Ram, Ranbir Kapoor was confirmed for the role of Ram while Yash is approached for the role of Ravan and a look test has already been successful, but Yash has yet not signed up for the film as he is also committed in a big project of the National Award-winning filmmaker Geethu Mohandas for an action-thriller which is known to be Yash's forte in the industry so far. Reports say Yash's role in Ramayan depends on what he prioritises. 

The filmmakers Nitesh Tiwari and Ravi Udyawar along with producers Namit Malhotra and Madhu Mantena are reportedly gearing up to start production on his adaptation of Ramayana in February 2024.
