The shoot was rescheduled for many times due to the second lockdown and the following restrictions
Bollywood star Akshay Kumar is likely to return to India and complete the shoot of Ram Setu by the end of this year. The actor, who is busy with multiple projects, is currently in London, shooting for the Hindi remake of the Tamil hit Ratsasan, alongside Rakul Preet.
If the reports are to be believed, the actor will begin the schedule of Ram Setu in October. The film’s mahurat shot was canned in March 2021 in Ayodhya before the second lockdown. However, the lockdown brought the planned long schedule shoot in Mumbai to a standstill. Things took a turn for the worse when Akshay was tested positive for COVID-19, forcing the team to cancel all the schedules and demolish the set.
Though the crew had plans to shoot a portion in Sri Lanka, it was also cancelled since the country asks for a quarantine period of one week, which may not be feasible for them.
Odds were again not in their favour as the next planned location Kerala turned into a pandemic hotspot. However, the team is breathing easy with the conditions slightly improving in the country. They are to resume the shoot in Gujarat, which makes it easy for them to find locations as well.
Helmed by Abhishek Sharma, Ram Setu features Akshay and Jacqueline Fernandez, Nushratt Bharucha in lead roles. Akshay is said to be playing an archeologist in the movie. More details about the movie are yet to be revealed, and audiences are expecting the crew to unveil more details soon.
Meanwhile, Akshay has already completed the shoot of Prithviraj, Atrangi Re and Rakshabandhan, and has Bachchan Pandey and Sooryavanshi gearing up for a release.
