Earlier, Akshay had met UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in Mumbai to reportedly discuss his film titled Ram Setu which is based in Ayodhya. As reported by Mumbai Mirror, Akshay was granted permission to shoot his film in Ayodhya, in the Ram Mandir premises where the construction is currently underway. The daily had quoted a source close to the film as saying, “Set in today’s India, it’s the journey of the protagonist to discover if the Ram Setu is a myth or reality. Since Akshay and his director, Abhishek Sharma, want to present an accurate depiction, they want to shoot in real locations in the state, including Ayodhya, the birthplace of Lord Ram. They want to kick off the film by mid-2021 in UP.”
