National Award-winning Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, who began his career as a stuntman, is doing special stunts for his upcoming film, Ram Setu. The film will release on Diwali.

Directed by Abhishek Sharma, and the story of the film revolves around unearthing some truth of history.

A source disclosed that Akshay choreographed the stunts along with stunt choreographers Anl Arasu and Parvez Shaikh.

The source revealed, "There’s a prolonged action sequence set in Afghanistan, which has been partly choreographed by Akshay. Another scene that he improvised throughout the shoot was the motorboat chase sequence."

The source also revealed that the superstar had multiple sessions with the stunt choreographers to design the scenes, to ensure that they are a visual treat for audiences. In fact, there were times when Akshay would try some of the stunts himself before the scene, just to check how safe they are, so that he and the entire action team could be safe during the actual shoot.

Producer Vikram Malhotra, who has worked with Akshay in multiple films, says that the Afghanistan and boat action scenes are the highlights of Ram Setu.

Director Abhishek Sharma, who has earlier helmed successful films like Tere Bin Laden, Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran and Suraj Pe Mangal, said that Ram Setu is a special film for him.

Abhishek said, "For me, it was the best of both worlds, where on one hand, I had two of the best action directors (Anl Arasu and Parvez Shaikh), and on the other, I had an actor who is synonymous with action in our country."

The director also said that he and Akshay wanted to offer something unique in terms of action for audiences, and together took up the challenge of creating something mind-blowing.

Produced by Cape of Good Films and Abundantia Entertainment, Ram Setu also has Jacqueline Fernandez, Nushrratt Bharuccha and Satyadev Kancharana in pivotal roles. It releases in theatres on October 25.
