Nitish Tiwari's Ramayan has been in the news ever since reports of Ranbir Kapoor, Sai Pallavi, and Yash joining the cast were out on the internet. It was reported that Ranbir will start the shooting in August, followed by Love & War. However, now it seems that it will take another year for the film to go on the floors. The makers were reportedly going to announce the film on Ram Navami, April 17.

Ramayan to not start filming in August 2024?

According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, a source revealed that the film will not go on the floors as there are too many internal issues to be resolved. “The project is on. But not this year. There are too many internal issues to be resolved," the source said. The report also claimed that costumes are also one of the reasons for the delay. According to the costumes are not "lavish" enough.
