The excitement for Nitesh Tiwari's Ramayana, the cinematic adaptation of the Indian epic, is skyrocketing with each passing day. Moreover, fans seem to be quite excited to see Ranbir Kapoor as Lord Ram, Sai Pallavi as Devi Sita, Sunny Deol as Lord Hanuman, and Yash as Demon King Ravana. The entire team is prepping up to go on the floors in March and recently, Ranbir underwent diction and dialogue training.
While fans are eyeing updates of the magnum opus, a recent report reveals about the looks of RK as Lord Ram.
As per a recent exclusive report by India Today, Ranbir underwent a look test for Lord Ram.
The report quoted a close source to the development as saying, that a photoshoot was held with Ranbir Kapoor to finalise his look as Lord Ram. While the makers are significantly preparing for other characters in Ramayana, including Sai Pallavi, Yash and Sunny Deol, the primary focus is on Ranbir.
Further, the source revealed that Ranbir will not be putting up any extra weight or gaining extra muscles to play his role as director Nitesh Tiwari wants him to be in his natural lean look. Briefing about the photoshoot, the source added that Ranbir's bare-bodied look with golden and gem-studded ornaments has impressed everyone, who has seen the photos.
As per the source, the makers are very keen to keep the looks of Ranbir Kapoor and Sai Pallavi simple without heavy jewellery and costumes.
Undoubtedly, Nitesh Tiwari won't leave any stone unturned for his ambitious project. Following the response of the audience for Prabhas-starrer Adipurush, Tiwari must be extra cautious as Ramayana is connected to the sentiments of every Hindu.
Earlier, reports were abuzz that makers are in talks with Vijay Sethupathi for Vibhishana, Lara Dutta for Queen Kayikeyi, Rakul Preet Singh for Suparnakha and Amitabh Bachchan for King Dasharath. However, there is no official confirmation backing the claims. Fans need to wait for an official announcement about the same from the makers.
