The much-anticipated film, Ramayana, directed by Nitesh Tiwari, is making rapid progress as preparations for the film are in full swing. It has been reported that Ranbir Kapoor, who will be playing the lead role of Lord Ram, is set to undergo rigorous vocal training to bring a unique sound to his portrayal of the character. Besides Ranbir, Sai Pallavi and Yash have also been cast in pivotal roles, portraying Sita and Ravan, respectively.
Reports suggest that the director is leaving no stone unturned in preparing for the film. A dedicated team has been established to refine diction and dialogue, closely working with the actors. Ranbir has been assigned to a diction expert who will supervise his dialogue delivery to match the director’s vision. Additionally, there is a particular focus on the costumes for the film.
A source was quoted saying, “Ranbir has a certain baritone and a way of speaking his lines. It is symbolic and if you have even closed your eyes, you can recognise a dialogue purely based on Ranbir’s voice. In Ramayana, Nitesh wants to make sure he sounds different from the characters he’s played in the past. Being a versatile actor, he is enjoying this process of trying something new.”
The upcoming film marks the third recent adaptation of the ‘Ramayan’ saga, following Om Raut’s ‘Adipurush’ and Prasanth Varma’s modern take with ‘HanuMan’. While the film’s team has yet to issue an official announcement, speculation surrounding the project has been prevalent for some time.
Ranbir is anticipated to commence shooting for the film soon. Additionally, reports suggest that the makers have approached Sunny Deol for the role of Hanuman and Bobby Deol for Kumbakaran. If these rumors are true, the film is slated for release in 2025.
