In November last year, Akshay Kumar announced Abhishek Sharma's Ram Setu, which turned out to be a Diwali treat for fans. The actor wrote on Twitter, “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.” While the concept and plot has been one of the most exciting parts of the film, the handsome hunk is set to kickstart the shooting of this project from April.

They want to kick off the film by mid-2021 in UP.” Recently, the Khiladi Kumar posted a picture, where he is having a script reading session along with producer Vikram Malhotra and creative producer Chandraprakash Dwivedi, director Abhishek Sharma and his leading ladies Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrratt Bharuccha.
