He has morals, sanskaars, sankriti:' Arun Govil can't stop praising Ranbir Kapoor as the actor all set to play Lord Ram in Ramayan

In an interview with Bollywood Spy, Arun Govil said, "As far as Ranbir is concerned, he is a good actor. He is an award-winning actor. Jitna janta hu mai unke baare mein, bahut mehnat se kaam karte hai vo. Bahut sanskaari bache hai vo basically. Unke andar morals, sanskar, sanskriti hai, maine dekha hai kai baar unko. [From what I know about him, he works very hard. He is a very cultured kid. He possesses morals, values, and a deep sense of tradition. I have observed this on multiple occasions.] I am very sure about it that he will try to do his level best. It should come out well."

About Ramayan

According to India Today, Ranbir Kapoor underwent a look test for his role as Lord Ram, impressing the team with his appearance. The director prefers Ranbir to maintain a lean physique rather than bulk up for the character.

As per the source, "Ranbir and Sai will start shooting for the film around the month of March 2024. The first part of the trilogy will focus more on Lord Rama and Sita, leading towards the conflict of Sita Haran."

As per a Pinkvilla report, the VFX plates for Ramayan are being prepared by the Oscar Winning Company, DNEG. A source informed the portal, "Nitesh Tiwari and team have been working actively on creating the world of Ramayan and the blueprint is finally all ready. The VFX plates are prepared by the Oscar Winning Company, DNEG and it's a world that would blow away the minds of audiences. However, the strength of Ramayan won't be the visual but the simplistic storytelling and compelling inter-character emotions." 

There is no official announcement from the filmmakers, the film is reportedly scheduled for release next year. Filming for the movie has commenced this month, aiming for completion by July, with a target release during Diwali 2025.
