The director is expected to zero in on the actors within the next two weeks. A source reveals, “Ranbir is playing Lord Ram while Naveen Polishetty has been approached for the role of Lakshman. Nitesh sir and the casting team want to ensure that the younger versions of Ram and Lakshman are in alignment with the actors playing the grown-up parts. At the moment, four to five young actors have been shortlisted.”

Yash and Sai Pallavi will play Ravana and Sita respectively in the ambitious trilogy.
