Reports suggest that Nitesh is planning to feature Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone for the roles of Lord Rama and Sita respectively. He is also planning to co-direct the film with Ravi Udyawar.

Fans have been excitedly waiting to see Deepika Padukone and Hrithik on screen and going by the rumours, seems like that will happen soon. There yet hasn't been any confirmation yet and even when director Nitesh Tiwari first spoke about it he didn't confirm anything. Talking about the same he said, "No, we are still working on the draft, we will not move and ask anyone till we are not happy and sure of what's there on the table and what exactly we're going to do. The casting and other aspects come in later. Sridhar Raghavan is writing the screenplay and once we know where we stand on paper only then we would be moving ahead with the rest of the things."

It is also reported that the budget of the film is Rs 500 crore and in 3D format, and is also speculated that movie will be released in Tamil and Telugu apart from Hindi as well.
