Akshay Kumar is currently on a roll. On the occasion of Diwali 2020, Akshay announced his new film ‘Ram Setu’ that comes with the tagline ‘Myth or Reality?’. In the first look poster, Akshay is seen sporting long hair, wearing a grey T-Shirt, a blue denim shirt and black cargo pants. He has covered his neck with an orange cloth. He also took a sling bag. We see a photo of Lord Ram in the background. The poster was released both in Hindi and English.

Akshay posted the poster with the caption, “This Deepawali,let us 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.
Taking this mammoth task ahead, here is our humble attempt – #RamSetu Wishing you & yours a very Happy Deepawali!”

The movie will be directed by Abhishek Sharma and produced by Aruna Bhatia and Vikram Malhotra.

Akshay’s ‘Laxmii’ had recently released on Disney+Hotstar and the film diddn’t get positive reviews from the critics. On this, Akshay told Mid-Day, “I know a lot of critics don’t like my films, and I understand it. But my focus is on my audience. I am told it’s the biggest opening of my career. The film achieves something pivotal. Having a transgender protagonist normalises and reinforces the rights of the LGBTQ community. Be it with ‘PadMan’ or ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ or ‘Mission Mangal’, the idea is to do more than just entertain or deliver a box-office success. I want to make a difference.”
