According to sources close to the development, Namit Malhotra is in talks with Warner Brothers for a mega partnership extending to all 3-parts of Ramayana. “Ramayana is the most ambitious film of Indian Cinema and the team is committed to bringing out an uncompromised product for the viewers. All the actors have gone out of their way to make this project a reality to the spectacle as the combined vision is to represent an Indian Story at a Global Level.
