Akshay Kumar has always been one of the busiest actors in the Hindi film industry with multiple releases each year. Even the pandemic couldn’t slow him down as the actor had three releases in 2021 with Bell Bottom, Sooryavanshi and Atrangi Re. And that’s what makes me an ardent admirer of his work as with Akshay, there is always something new to look forward to. Even in the coming years, the actor has a plethora of releases with Bachchan Pandey, Prithviraj, Raksha Bandhan, Mission Cinderella and Ram Setu, and as per a report in News 18, the actor is raring to get back to work on the latter.
While things have again come to a halt due to the Omicron variant of Covid, Akshay has reportedly decided to complete the shoot of the last schedule of Ram Setu, which also features Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrratt Bharuccha and is helmed by Abhishek Sharma.
A source shared,
“There is about a month of shooting left of Ram Setu which the makers have decided to finish in Mumbai. The production team is currently setting up the entire schedule and it will be indoor as well as outdoor shoot. The team expects to begin shooting by the end of this month.”
What makes this schedule all the more exciting is that Akshay will be shooting for some underwater sequences in this leg.
The source added,
“The cast, which includes Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrratt Bharuccha, wrapped up the Ooty schedule in November after which they were supposed to fly to Sri Lanka to shoot the major underwater scenes and ocean shots. But that wasn’t possible due to the ongoing pandemic. So after doing some research and on-location recce, the team has finalised Daman and Diu as their next-best bet to shoot these sequences. But there are some more shots which are remaining and the makers have decided to finish it in Mumbai. Akshay will be seen doing some high-octane underwater sequences for which an international crew has also been hired.”
In Bell Bottom and Sooryavanshi, I got to see Akshay perform some aerial stunts and with Atrangi Re, I got to see his daredevil side yet again. So, it will be interesting to see the actor take his fearless persona in the water as well, and all this has just made me more curious for the release of the film.
