According to earlier reports, while Ranbir will be seen as Lord Ram in the magnum opus, Sai Pallavi is set to play the character of Devi Sita. On the other hand, reports claim that Sunny Deol will essay the character of Lord Hanuman, and Vijay Sethupathi will be seen as Vibhishan in the first part of the planned trilogy. However, recently a report in Firstpost claimed that Janhvi Kapoor will replace Sai Pallavi in the Indian mythological saga.

Why voice and diction training?

The purpose of this training is to create proper articulation, vocal tone, pitch, pace, and resonance, which includes the practical application of breathing, relaxation, and tongue and lip placement. The method of this training focuses on how these elements pertain to voice and diction. The final goal of this course is to instill in the awareness of the patterns and styles of speech that are acceptable.
