After filming in Ayodhya, team had shot in Ooty
The Abhishek Sharma directorial also features Nushrratt Bharuccha, Telugu actor Satyadev, and veteran south Indian star Nassar in prominent roles. To recall, Kumar had announced the completion of Ooty-leg of the shooting schedule in October. Before Ooty, shooting had taken place in Ayodhya after Kumar personally approached Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath about the production taking place in the city.
This is what the film is all about
A dream project for the Airlift star, Ram Setu will see Kumar playing the role of an archaeologist for the first time. His character will embark on a journey trying to unearth if the Ram Setu is a myth or reality. Production could've been wrapped up a lot sooner. In April, Kumar and numerous other members had contracted COVID-19, thereby significantly delaying the schedule.
Before 'Ram Setu,' Kumar's 'Bachchan Pandey' will release this March
Before Ram Setu greets us this Diwali, the famed Khiladi will grace screens in his Bachchan Pandey avatar during Holi (March 18). He plays a gangster in this Sajid Nadiadwala production. Kumar's historical drama, Prithviraj should have hit the theaters this month but was postponed due to the pandemic. Further, he has Raksha Bandhan, OMG 2, and Gorkha in the line-up.
