In November last year, Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar announced his next film Ram Setu. Without revealing any details about the story or the star cast, the actor shared a poster that read ‘myth or reality’. Now, the latest report claims that actress Jacqueline Fernandez and Nusrat Bhartucha will be the top female in the film. According to TOI, these two actresses went down to perform in important parts. Although Jacqueline has already worked with Akshay, Nusrat will share the screen space with Khiladi Kumar for the first time.
Announcing the film and sharing posters on the occasion of Diwali last year, Akshay Kumar wrote, “This Diwali, let us try to keep the ideals of Ram alive in the consciousness of all Indians by building a bridge that will connect the coming generations.” Here is our humble effort – #Ramsetu & wish you and you a very Happy Diwali. ”
In the posters, the actor is seen wearing long hair and gray shirt, cargo pants with a saffron scarf around his neck. He had a sharp look and was carrying the shoulder bag, while he was walking over a narrow land that divides into what appears to be the sea. The image of Lord Rama was in the background of the poster.
Ram Setu is supported by Akshay Kumar’s production house and will be directed by Abhishek Sharma. Shortly after the announcement, Akshay sought permission from Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to start shooting for the film. The Chief Minister praised the actor’s efforts in making the film through social media.
On the work front, there is an interesting lineup of Akshay Kumar’s films. He will soon be seen in Rohit Sethi’s Suryavanshi, where he will play the role of ATS officer Bir Suryavanshi.
