Bollywood producers have started announcing the revised release dates of their films a day after Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said that theatres in the state are set to reopen on October 22. Producers, who refrained from taking the digital route amid the pandemic, are elated with the decision and now, they made fans happy with release date announcements. Akshay Kumar, one of the busiest actors in Bollywood, has multiple films on the cards.
After announcing Sooryavanshi and Bachchan Pandey's release dates, Akshay confirmed that his film titled Ram Setu will be ready for theatrical opening by Diwali 2022. The exact date hasn't been declared yet but it is sure that the film that promises "to keep alive the ideals of Ram," will be a perfect Diwali watch in 2022. Ram Setu, directed by Abhishek Sharma, also stars Nushrratt Bharuccha and Jacqueline Fernandez in important roles.
Ram Setu went on floors on March 30 this year. A mahurat puja was performed in Ayodhya on March 18 with Akshay, Nushrratt, Jacqueline and Abhishek. The Bollywood superstar plays the role of an archaeologist and his look was revealed in March itself.
The film was announced on Diwali 2020 with two posters.
