Mumbai: Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar’s film ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ is entertaining the audience in theaters these days, meanwhile the discussion about his next film ‘Ram Setu’ has started. In the recent reports, it was claimed that Akshay Kumar’s film ‘Ram Setu’ will not be released in theaters but on OTT platform. The makers have taken this decision in view of the box office results of ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ and ‘Bachchan Pandey’. However, now the producer of ‘Ram Setu’ Vikram Malhotra has dismissed all these reports.
‘Ram Setu’ also stars Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrat Bharucha. Directed by Abhishek Sharma, the film stars Akshay as an archaeologist investigating the mystery behind Ram Setu, the bridge between India and Sri Lanka mentioned in the Ramayana. The film is scheduled to release around Diwali on October 24. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Friday that the film’s producer Vikram Malhotra has clarified that the film will release only in theatres.
Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to confirm that Akshay Kumar’s Ram Setu will release in cinemas and not on any digital platform. His tweet read, “‘RAM SETU’: IN CINEMAS, *NOT* OTT… #RamSetu – starring #AkshayKumar – will release in *cinemas*, NOT on any digital platform, as speculated on social media… “#RamSetu will celebrate #Diwali 2022 in theatres, as committed,” producer #VikramMalhotra sets the record straight.”
