Mumbai, September 5, 2021: Akshay Kumar is undoubtedly the busiest actor in India. The actor seems to be competing with himself when it comes to shooting for the films. The Padman actor is currently shooting for the yet-untitled film, co-starring Rakul Preet Singh, with Pooja Entertainment in London.
Akshay is expected to complete the shoot for his ongoing project in the next couple of weeks, and once he returns to India, he will reportedly resume shooting the ambitious film, Ram Setu in October. He is expected to complete the Ram Setu shoot by December this year.
The actor had begun with the mahurat of the film in March 2021 in Ayodhya and was to shoot a long schedule in Mumbai but the second lockdown got enforced and some members of the unit including Akshay tested positive, forcing the shoot to be canceled and the set had to be demolished.
There were reports that the Ram Setu team will shoot some portions in Sri Lanka as the movie had a direct connection with the country. However, the makers of the film have reportedly changed their plans to shoot in Sri Lanka as the country has a quarantine period that would keep Akshay idle for almost a week.
The makers have now planned to resume shoot in Gujrat for outdoor portions for this Abhishek Sharma directorial. Gujrat is considered to be one of the most suitable locations for film shootings.
Produced by Amazon Prime Video, Lyca Productions, Abundantia Entertainment, and Cape Of Good Films, Ram Setu also stars Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrat Bharucha in prominent roles. Akshay is playing an archaeologist in Ram Setu who finds the truth behind Rama's Bridge or Rama Setu.
