Makers of the film based on the Ramayana have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Uttar Pradesh government’s cinema arm Film Bandhu. The MoU was signed at the UP Investors Summit 2018, as per a statement by the producer Madhu Mantena.

Being touted as India’s most expensive film, the project will reportedly cost Rs. 500 crore and is being backed by Allu Aravind and Namit Malhotra besides Madhu Mantena.

As per an official statement Awanish Kumar Awasthi, principle secretary of the information department and chairman of Film Bandhu, announced that they will fully support the efforts of making Ramayana in Uttar Pradesh.

Speaking at the event, Madhu Mantena said that he was inspired to make the film by the life and work of Anand Pai of Amar Chitra Katha who popularised mythological stories through his Amar Chitra Katha stories.

Mantena, who also produced Ghajini, India’s first 100 crore film, said the new project is an effort to retell Indian mythology to all generations in all its audio visual glory with the help of the latest technology and visual effects.

The film will be shot in 3D and will be released as a three part series. The film which will be shot in Uttar Pradesh will release in three languages- Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
