With the release of his over-the-top film Bawaal, director Nitish Tiwari is getting ready for his upcoming film, Ramayana. Previously, Sai Pallavi and Ranbir Kapoor were supposed to play Ram and Sita. According to the most recent sources, Janhvi Kapoor took Sai Pallavi's spot. However, it turns out that these reports are not true and Sai is very much part of the project for the role of Sita.

The principal cast of Ramayana is locked, according to reports. A source tells Bollywood Hungama that in the film, Ramayana, Ranbir Kapoor plays the role of Lord Ram. Yash plays Raavan, Sunny Deol portrays Hauman, and Sai Pallavi plays Sita. The film's makers plan to start shooting in March 2024, therefore pre-production and preparation work has already started.

Speaking about Janhvi Kapoor's involvement in the project, the source tells the portal, "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."

It was earlier reported that the original plan was for Alia Bhatt to play Sita, but if rumors are to be believed, she had to walk away from the film since she couldn't find any dates.

The recent rumors that Janhvi had taken Sai's place went viral very quickly on the internet, but in the spirit of responsible journalism, we make every effort to provide you with factual information to prevent confusion or false claims. Given that Ramayana is one of the most anticipated movies, let's watch and see if there are any new developments shortly.

Ranbir Kapoor and Sai Pallavi to start shooting soon?

The film, starring Ranbir and Sai, is scheduled to begin filming in February 2024 if we go by Pinkvilla reports. The fight between Sita and Lord Ram will be the main subject of the initial chapter of the trilogy, which sets up Sita Haran. The source tells the portal that the two will be filming Ramayana: Part One from February to August 2024, at which point they will call it a wrap. Yash, who plays Ravana in the movie, will begin filming his scenes in July 2024.
