Despite ongoing legal issues, the production of Ranbir Kapoor and Sai Pallavi's highly anticipated film "Ramayana" is moving forward as planned. Directed by Nitesh Tiwari of "Dangal" fame, the film is set to feature "KGF" star Yash in the role of the villainous Ravana, adorned in real gold jewellery, clothes, and accessories.

The filmmakers aim to create a visually stunning and historically accurate depiction of Ravana, the king of the wealthy and prosperous golden city of Lanka. By incorporating real gold into Yash's costumes, the production seeks to enhance the opulence and grandeur associated with his character.

This approach isn't unprecedented in Indian cinema. Actresses like Anushka Shetty in "Rudramadevi" and Samantha in "Shaakuntalam" have previously worn real gold jewellery for their historical roles. However, "Ramayana" takes this a step further, incorporating gold not only in jewellery but also in clothing and accessories, promising a lavish visual spectacle.

As the film gears up for production, fans eagerly await the portrayal of this epic tale, brought to life with unprecedented attention to detail and extravagance.
