A couple of years ago, post the phenomenal success of Baahubali movies, a new big-budget spectacle, was announced. It was based on the ever-popular household story of the Indian public, The Ramayana, and was the producer Allu Aravind’s brainchild.
Month’s and a couple of years later, we finally hear about a new development regarding the epic. It is announced today (July 8th) that Ramayana is still happening and that now it would be a joint production venture involving Allu Aravind, Madhu Mantena and Namit Malhotra of Prime Focus.
However, the more exciting part is the announcement of the directors. The Ramayana will be made as three parts series, and the directorial responsibilities are handed to Dangal fame Nitesh Tiwari and Mom director, Ravi Udyawar.
Still, a decision has not been made regarding the lead cast and crew except that the movies will comprise of acting talents from across various Indian film industries. With the release date of the first part given as 2021, we hope there will be a moment in this direction sooner rather than later if the epic is to go to sets as proclaimed.
