South Actors Nassar and Satyadev to collab with Akshay Kumar in his upcoming ‘Ram Setu’
The two south names have signed on to play key roles in Ram Setu, and will start shooting with Akshay soon.
Akshay Kumar, is an India-born naturalised Canadian actor, producer, martial artist and television personality who works in Bollywood, the commercial Hindi language film industry.
Akshay Kumar is one of the busiest actors in Bollywood and has some interesting films in the pipeline. One of them is Abhishek Sharma’s action-adventure ‘Ram Setu’.
Ram Setu is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language film directed by Abhishek Sharma and produced by Aruna Bhatia and Vikram Malhotra. The film features Akshay Kumar, Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrat Bharucha in the lead roles. It was the first Indian co-production by Amazon Prime Video.
Now if the latest buzz in the town is to be believed, the makers have cast in two South actors for this Akshay Kumar-starrer. As per a report in Pinkvilla, veteran actor Nassar and upcoming Telugu actor Satyadev are the latest addition to the cast of Ram Setu.
The two south names have signed on to play in Ram Setu and will start shooting soon. Interestingly, Nassar has worked with Akshay previously on Rowdy Rathore, whereas this will be a first-time collaboration of Akshay with Satyadev. Akshay Kumar plays a pivotal role of an archaeologist in the movie. The source further added, “It’s going to be an extensive multi-location schedule for Ram Setu, in India and Sri Lanka. After winding up the shoot, even the post-production will take time as the story demands the use of visual effects. The makers are targeting a Diwali 2022 release of the movie.”
Director Abhishek Sharma had disclosed that the concept for this Akshay Kumar-starrer developed when he came across a newspaper reporting about a court case related to a project to build a shipping canal in the shallow channel between India and Sri Lanka.
The shooting of Ram Setu had already begun earlier this year before the Maharashtra Government imposed lockdown-like restrictions in the state owing to rising COVID-19 cases.
