National award-winning Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar starring film Ram Setu, which is out on Diwali, did not go down the usual route of showing the film to critics for his review. Usually a preview is held for the media so they can watch the film beforehand. However, the press show is now taking place on the same day of the release and the shows will already start airing by then.
The big question is why? It’s natural to wonder what could be the real reason the directors decided to skip a preview for one of the most anticipated films of the year?
OTTplay has learned the real reason why manufacturers have taken such a step. There is an interesting story to this.
According to a source close to the production house, the film has an interesting climax which comes in the last 20 minutes. The makers claim that it will amazingly amaze everyone with pleasure.
We also learned that the creators took more time during post-production to make its visual effects better than ever. The film was shot in Ooty, Daman and Diu and Mumbai. Although previously the makers planned to shoot parts of the film in Sri Lanka, due to the pandemic they had to postpone the plan with another location in Kerela and Gujarat.
Directed by Abhishek Sharma, the story of the film revolves around uncovering a truth from history. In the film, Akshay plays the protagonist named Dr. Aryan Kulshrestha, who is an archaeologist, searching for the truth of history, which has also become a major part of mythology.
Earlier this week, the creators revealed that the superstar had several sessions with stunt choreographers Anl Arasu and Parvez Shaikh to design the scenes and ensure they are a visual treat for the audience. In fact, there were times when Akshay would try out some of the stunts himself before the scene, just to check how safe they were, so that he and the entire action crew could be safe while filming.
Produced by Cape of Good Films and Abundantia Entertainment, Ram Setu also stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Nushrratt Bharuccha and Satyadev Kancharana in key roles. It hits theaters on October 25.
