While there has been no formal announcement of the film's cast,  speculation state Sai Pallavi's role as Goddess Sita, with talks suggest Sunny Deol may be considered for the role of Lord Hanuman. While there's no official confirmation, it has come to the fore that Bobby Deol reportedly approached to play Kumbhkaran. There are also rumours swirling around Vijay Sethupathi's potential portrayal of Raavan's youngest brother, Vibhishan. Yash is rumoured to play the role of Raavana and is also the co-producer of the film. 

Meanwhile, the shoot of the film began on April 2 in Mumbai. It’s the set-up of a Gurukul, which has been combined with a green screen for enhancement in the post-production process.  The first schedule of the magnum opus began with child artists playing the parts of Lord Ram, Laxman, and Bharat. Ranbir Kapoor was not a part of the schedule. Nitesh Tiwari shot the childhood portions of Lord Ram, where Guru Vasishtha gives life lessons to Lord Ram and his brothers. Shishir Sharma has been cast to play the role of Guru Vasishtha, whereas the names of child artists have been kept under wraps for now. It's a pure and honest take on Ramayana, and the makers are being very cautious to do justice to every part that's written in the books.
