Akshay Kumar is one of the actors who always keep experimenting with his roles and try to not repeat the same as he did earlier. More recently, he had an OTT film release ‘Laxmmi’ in a transgender role and received a round of applause filled with appreciation. And he will now be seen in a cop role for the much-awaited ‘Sooryavanshi’, releasing on April 30.
Now, in the actor’s next film ‘Ram Setu’ he is again going to look up in a completely different avatar. Here what creative producer Chandraprakash Dwivedi has to say on the same, “Akshay sir plays an archaeologist and his look and character is inspired by several Indian and international professional archaeologists who work in the field. In terms of both look and character, Akshay sir’s fans are in for a totally new avatar.”
And Akshay Kumar is going to head to Ayodhya on March 18 for a mahurat shoot, and it was the Dwivedi who came up with the idea of shooting the mahurat shot at Ayodhya, he says, “What better way to embark upon the journey of ‘Ram Setu’ than to kick-off at the very birthplace of Lord Ram. Having visited Ayodhya several times myself, I suggested to Akshay and the team that we should launch the production schedule with blessings from the holy temple of Lord Ram. We are scheduled to hold our mahurat shot in Ayodhya and commence our filming on an auspicious note.”
Also, ‘Ram Setu’ will be shot at multiple locations while 80 percent of it will be based in Mumbai. On that producer, Vikram Malhotra says, “For ‘Ram Setu’, there will be strict protocols in place, including travel and stay bio-bubbles, frequent health checks, and a professional agency on-board to manage these protocols all through. Given the complexity of the story and ensuing locations, VFX, etc, the production will be spread across multiple schedules over the next few months.”
The film also stars Nushrratt Bharuccha and Jacqueline Fernandez as the leading ladies, talking about their roles in the film, the director Abhishek Sharma says, “They both play strong, independent women with well-etched out parts. We are keeping their looks under wraps for now!”
