Akshay Kumar announces his next film Ram Setu on Diwali, unveils first look on Twitter
Ram Setu will be directed by Abhishek Sharma and co-produced by Akshay Kumar along with Vikram Malhotra.
Akshay Kumar, on Saturday, took to Twitter to announce his next film, Ram Setu. The poster sees the actor sporting a long hairdo with a saffron scarf round around his neck. He seems to be walking down a narrow strip of land that divides what appears to be the ocean. In the background of the poster is an image of Lord Ram.
Ram Setu will be directed by Abhishek Sharma, whose film Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari released on 15 November.
The announcement was made on the occasion of Diwali as Kumar's post read, “This Deepawali, let us endeavour to keep alive the ideals of Ram in the consciousness of all Bharatiyas."

Kumar is co-producing the film with Abduntia and Vikram Malhotra. Chandraprakash Dwivedi is the creative producer of the film. Plot and cast details are yet be disclosed.
Kumar is fresh off his first digital release, Laxmii. The official Hindi remake of the Tamil film Kanchana, Laxmii follows the journey of an innocent man who is possessed by a couple of vengeful ghosts to get justice for their murders.
He also wrapped up shooting one of his upcoming films, Bell Bottom in Scotland. The actor has now resumed shooting for the period drama, Prithviraj. Former Miss World Manushi Chillar stars opposite him in the role of Princess Sanyogita.
Bhumi explains, "A year ago, I launched India's first clothing environmental footprint calculator with Dolce Vee so we can all understand the environmental impact of each of our clothes."
Speaking about it, while promoting Raksha Bandhan, the actor added, "We cannot disagree with the fact that dowry is very much there in India. It's in the layers."
Trade guru Taran Adarsh says he is hopeful about both. “It's too early to comment on the box-office prospects of either Laal Singh Chaddha or Raksha Bandhan. The advance bookings have not been too strong and the two films are dependent on word of mouth."
