The shooting schedule, slated to commence around February 2024, will see Ranbir and Sai Pallavi capturing the essence of Lord Ram and Sita in the initial phase. The first installment, focused on the divine couple's narrative leading to the pivotal Sita Haran conflict, will be filmed until August 2024, marking the completion of Ramayana: Part One.
Yash, with a substantial role in the first part, will play a central role in the second installment, set in Sri Lanka, dedicating 15 days to Ramayana: Part One. According to a source quoted by Pinkvilla, Ranbir Kapoor's commitment to the role extends beyond the screen, as he plans to abstain from alcohol and meat during the film's production. This decision aligns with his dedication to embody the purity and essence of Sri Rama.
