Akshay Kumar is at the forefront when it comes to resuming the shooting of the film. Right now she is busy with Aanand L Rai’s ‘Raksha Bandhan’ and the next schedule is the shooting schedule of ‘Ram Setu’. The shooting will begin in September and the new schedule is to be shot at open locations, so the makers of the film want to start post monsoon. There were reports that the makers of the film may go to Sri Lanka for a schedule. But Sri Lanka’s 15-day mandatory quarantine process may prevent them from opting for the island country. A source said, “It is definitely a challenge for any actor to be in isolation without work. Akshay is all set to leave, so there is every possibility that the shoot may happen soon and to avoid the quarantine related delays, the film may be shot at cheat locations that might make it to Sri Lanka. The last schedule of the film, which was to be held in Bollywood Mumbai, had to be canceled after Akshay Kumar tested positive for Covid-19. The set had to be broken after the second lockdown was announced in April. The muhurat of the film took place in Ayodhya and the two leading ladies Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrat Bharucha were present on the sets. Akshay Kumar announced ‘Ram Setu’ on Diwali last year, the first poster of which surfaced on Twitter. He had captioned the picture, “This Diwali, let us try to keep the ideals of Ram alive in the consciousness of all Indians by building a bridge (Setu) that will connect generations to come. Taking this colossal task forward, it is our humble endeavor – #RamSetu to wish you a very Happy Diwali!”. The film is directed by Abhishek Sharma who has previously made ‘The Zoya Factor’ and ‘Parmanu’. Huh.
