Set in the 1960s, Sita Ramam narrates a love story through letters between Princess Noor Jahan alias Sita Mahalakshmi and Lieutenant Ram. Afreen, a young rebellious student in London, enters the story on a quest to find Sita and deliver Ram’s last letter, leading to the unfolding of many truths of Afreen’s life.
Director Hanu Raghavapudi said, “Sita Ramam was created on a large canvas with the vision of breaking language barriers. Its relatable storyline features a romance that can be understood and enjoyed by everyone. I am excited for the film to be released on Disney+ Hotstar in Hindi because this will be a step towards a larger audience experiencing the world of Ram and Sita Mahalakshmi.”
Dulquer Salmaan shared, “I feel extremely lucky to be a part of a poetic romance film like Sita Ramam. The film is universal, and it is visually spectacular, which is why it has struck a chord with the audience. I am sure that with more people getting to watch in Hindi on Disney+ Hotstar, they will get struck by its beautiful cinematography and unique story.”
Mrunal Thakur said, “Being part of an enigmatic story was the biggest lucrative reason for me to be part of Sita Ramam. Despite whatever small hurdles that I did have to adapt to and learn from, I was so elated to be part of this film. Learning a new language seemed a small hike in exchange of this beautifully written character by Hanu sir. To be with such an incredible team and working alongside Dulquer was rewarding, to see what an impeccable performer he is. I knew we were making something special, and that elevated with the warm and tremendous welcome u got for my Telugu debut. I am excited that now a whole new base of audiences will view the film in Hindi on Disney+ Hotstar and fall in love with Sita and Ram’s story."
