Nitesh Kumar Sahoo

Nitesh Tiwari's Ramayana is one of the much-awaited projects. The tentative ensemble casting for the planned trilogy has already elevated the excitement among all. While the makers are yet to make an official confirmation, reports are abuzz that Ranbir Kapoor and Sai Pallavi have already started training in Mumbai and will go on floors next month. While Yash and Sunny Deol will join the team soon, recent reports suggest that the makers have locked the actress to play the character of Demon King Ravana's wife Mandodari.

As per earlier reports, Ranbir Kapoor and Sai Pallavi will be essaying the role of Lord Ram and Devi Sita in the cinematic adaptation of the Indian Epic. Moreover, KFI's Rocking Star Yash will play Demon King Ravana's role and Sunny Deol will portray Lord Hanuman's character. Speculations are also rife that Rakul Preet Singh, Lara Dutta, Harman Baweja, and Arun Govil will play Surpanakha, Kaikeyi, Vibhisana and King Dasarath's characters respectively. Meanwhile, recent reports suggest that TV actor Ravi Dubey will be seen as Lakshman in the magnum opus.

Now, the recent buzz is that the makers have locked another popular TV actress to essay the role of Mandodari.

If the recent reports are anything to go by, actress Sakshi Tanwar is set to join the cast of Nitesh Tiwari's Ramayana.

According to a report by Filmi Beat, Tanwar, known for her role in Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal, has bagged the role in the much-awaited project. The reports also suggest that Tanwar has been participating in script-reading sessions with the cast. However, there is no official confirmation backing the claims of the 51-year-old actress bagging the role.

Furthermore, it is also speculated that actress Indir Krishna has been locked to play Ranbir's onscreen mother in Ramayana. Recently, Krishna shared a sneak peek of her meeting with RK, which fueled the speculation that Krishna will be portraying Queen Kaushalya's character.

Recently, RK was spotted with an archery coach and is reportedly undergoing training for his role in Ramayana. The picture was shared on X (formerly Twitter) in which the Animal actor can be posing with the archery coach, while some arrows kept on a table are visible. Meanwhile, another picture of RK also surfaced on social media in which he is seen performing a headstand at the gym.

As per earlier reports, Ranbir is extensively preparing to essay Lord Ram's character. However, the movie has been in the pre-production stage for a long time and has witnessed delays given the scale of its production and the casting. Hopefully, the makers will soon make an official announcement regarding the movie and end all speculations.
