Akshay Kumar's Diwali gift to fans this year is the announcement of his forthcoming film Ram Setu. Akshay unveiled the poster of the film, in which he is seen in a long hairdo and a grey T-Shirt, a blue denim shirt and black cargo pants. The poster also has a photo of Lord Ram in the background.
The actor posted the first poster with an English caption that read, "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."
