Akshay to get started 'Ram Setu' shoot in September
Akshay Kumar is leading from leading with regards to resuming film shoots. Right now he's busy with Aanand L Rai's 'Rakshabandhan' and then on the cards is the shooting schedule of 'Ram Setu'. The shoot will get started in September and the new schedules are supposed to be shot on open locations, therefore the makers of the film want to commence post-monsoon.

There were reports that the makers of the film may be likely to Sri Lanka for just one of the schedules. But Sri Lanka's 15-day mandatory quarantine procedure may prevent them from deciding on the island country. A source said, "It is certainly a challenge for any actor to remain locked up without work in isolation. Akshay is raring to go, so there is every chance the shooting might take place soon and avoid quarantine related delays, the film may be shot in cheat spots that could make up for Sri Lanka."

The last schedule of the film that was to be held in Mumbai needed to be cancelled after Akshay Kumar tested positive for Covid-19. The set needed to be dismantled following the second lockdown was announced in April. The muhurat of the film occurred in Ayodhya and had both leading females Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrratt Bharuccha present on set.

Akshay Kumar had announced 'Ram Setu' on Diwali last year, with an initial poster reveal on Twitter. He had captioned the image, "This Deepawali, why don't we endeavour to keep alive the ideals of Ram in the consciousness of most Bharatiyas because they build a bridge(setu) that may connect generations to come. Taking this mammoth task ahead, here's our humble attempt - #RamSetu Wishing you & yours an extremely Happy Deepawali!". The film has been directed by Abhishek Sharma who has previously made 'The Zoya Factor' and 'Parmanu'.
