PeepingMoon.com had exclusively informed its readers on February 10, 2021, that Jacqueline Fernandez will be featuring opposite Akshay Kumar in his upcoming film, titled Ram Setu. The Sri Lankan beauty who was shooting with the Bollywood superstar for Sajid Nadiadwala's Bachchan Pandey in Jaisalmer, will be reuniting with him for the 6th time.
Now, a leading daily has informed that along with Jacqueline, Nushrratt Bharuccha will also feature in the film. This is the first time Nushrratt will be sharing the screen space with both Jacqueline and Akshay.
Not much is known about Ram Setu. Akshay announced the film last Diwali by releasing a poster in which he urged cine-goers “to endeavor to keep alive the ideals of Ram in the consciousness of all Bharatiyas by building a bridge (setu) that will connect generations to come”. The poster showed Akshay in a disheveled look with a saffron scarf around his neck. The background has Lord Ram with a bow and arrow. It also asks, “Myth or Reality?”
Ram Setu will be directed by Abhishek Sharma who helmed films like The Zoya Factor, Parmanu, Tere Bin Laden among others. Chandraprakash Dwivedi, who is directing Akshay’s Prithviraj, is the creative producer.
