Releasing the poster both in English and Hindi, Akshay’s Instagram post read:
इस दीपावली,भारत राष्ट्र के आदर्श और महानायक भगवान श्री राम की पुण्य स्मृतियों को युगों – युगों तक भारत की चेतना में सुरक्षित रखने के लिए एक ऐसा सेतु बनाये जो आने वाले पीढ़ियों को राम से जोड़ कर रखे।इसी प्रयास में हमारा भी एक छोटा संकल्प है – राम सेतु
आप सबको दीपावली की शुभ कामनाएं l

In the poster, the actor can be seen wearing a saffron scarf and spectacles. Sporting a dishevelled look, the poster has Hindu deity Ram in the background. The poster also has a line that says, “Myth or Reality?” hinting towards the mythical elements involved in the building of Ram Setu (bridge) by Hindu deity Ram with the help of the Vaanar Sena (Monkey Army) from India to Sri Lanka in an effort to rescue his wife Sita.
The film will be produced by Arun Bhatia and Vikram Malhotra under the banner Abundantia Entertainment. Further details regarding the cast and technical crew have not been disclosed yet.
Akshay was last seen in Laxmii alongside Kiara Advani that premiered on Disney+Hotstar on Monday. The film is the Hindi remake of the 2011 Tamil film Kanchana.
Meanwhile, Sharma’s last directorial venture was the Hindi film Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari featuring Manoj Bajpayee and Diljit Dosanjh.
