When it comes to period dramas and stories inspired from epics, it’s always an exciting one to look forward to. Last year, around Diwali, Akshay Kumar announced that he is all set to star in a film titled ‘Ram Setu’ that is inspired from the Ramayana and Lord Ram’s ideals and life.
Now, latest news about the film is about who is set to star alongside him in this film. Given he is essaying the role inspired by Lord Ram, we have scoop that Jacqueline Fernandez is set to star opposite him in the role of Sita, his wife.
This is not the first time that we will be seeing Jacky and Akshay share screen space as they have previously acted in movies like Brothers, Housefull 2, and Housefull 3, and just wrapped up the shoot of Bachchan Pandey recently. A Time Of India article also adds that Nushrratt Bharuchha is set to play the other female lead in the film. This will be the first time that she will be sharing screen space with both Akshay and Jacqueline.
The poster shared by Akshay last year shows him looking dishelved, standing with a cross-body bag, wearing cargo pants and an orange scarf, donning some lock locks and glasses. The film is reportedly set to be shot in Ayodhya, where the original epic was based. Akshay and the makers even reportedly spoke to the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, to procure permission to shoot there. He will mostly start shoot for it by mid-2021.
Check out the poster:
Coming back to Jacqueline’s part in the film, I am super excited and can’t wait to know about Nushrratt’s part next!
