Thanks to its outstanding casting, Nitesh Tiwari's masterpiece, Ramayana, is currently the talk of the town. In the latest development, an ETimes report claims that Harman Baweja will most likely essay the role of Vibhishan in Ramayana. Earlier, there were rumours that Tamil actor-producer Vijay Sethupathi would play the part of Ravana’s younger brother; however, the report has put all speculation to rest.

It turns out that Vijay Sethupathi will no longer be a part of Nitesh Tiwari's Ramayana as Vibhishan since Harman Baweja will be taking over the role. Harman, who was on a hiatus from acting, returned with the OTT series Scoop, in which he co-starred with Hansal Mehta and Karishma Tanna. Audiences were impressed with his role, and if rumours are confirmed, it will be exciting to watch Harman transform into Vibhishan. But we're still waiting for an official confirmation. 

Ramayana Plot and Cast 

Ramayana is about the life of Lord Rama as well as his unshakable dedication to ethical behaviour. The story begins when Ravana, the demon king, kidnaps Sita, Rama's adored wife. Rama sets off on a treacherous quest with his faithful brother Lakshmana and the obedient monkey god Hanuman, determined to save her. The movie's production will begin in March of this year. 


The announcement of filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari's Ramayana, which stars Sai Pallavi, Yash, and Ranbir Kapoor in important parts, is reportedly scheduled for April 17 in honour of Ram Navami. 

The film is expected to be released in theatres on the Diwali 2025 weekend. Ranbir Kapoor, who plays Lord Ram in the movie, has reportedly been undergoing voice and diction training. Besides Ranbir, the film also stars Sai Pallavi as Sita and Yash as the demon king Ravana.
