“The story is about the battle royale between the greatest hero and villain of Indian mythology, Ram and Raavan. Several movies have been made on the
earlier, but I feel safe narrating a familiar story through an unfamiliar format,” says Vaid.
Offering reasons for his choice of star voices he explains, “We want to show Ram as a handsome man with an attitude. Kunal’s voice and persona is just right. As for Reddy, she looks and sounds like princess, while Grover is the only name that came to mind when he thought of Raavan."

The film budgeted at
20-22 crore, is almost 60 per cent complete and likely to hit the theatres in December. With

Vaid’s next will be a live action film on the lines of the Hollywood movie
