On the occasion of Diwali, Akshay Kumar has announced a new film Ram Setu. The actor shared the first look posters from the film. The movie will be directed by Abhishek Sharma. The actor shared two posters from the film, where he is seen dressed as a common man with a photo of Lord Ram in the background.

The Ram Setu has a significance in the Hindu texts, Ramayana.The ancient Indian Sanskrit epic Ramayana (7th century BCE to 3rd century CE) written by Valmiki mentions a bridge constructed by god Rama through his Vanara (ape-men) army to reach Lanka and rescue his wife Sita from the Rakshasa king, Ravana. The location of the Lanka of the Ramayana has been widely interpreted as being current day Sri Lanka making this stretch of land Nala’s or Rama’s bridge.

Akshay posted the first poster with an English caption stating, “This Deepawali, let us endeavour to keep alive the ideals of Lord Ram in the consciousness of all Bharatiyas by building a bridge (setu) that will connect generations to come. Taking this mammoth task ahead, here is our humble attempt – RAM SETU! Wishing you & yours a very Happy Deepawali! #RamSetu #AbhishekSharma #CapeOfGoodFilms @abundantiaent @ivikramix #DrChandraprakashDwivedi.”
