Ram Setu Release date

As of this writing, the official release date of Ram Setu movie is not yet revealed by Akshay Kumar. Still, since he has four major releases in 2021, namely -- Sooryavanshi, Atrangi Re, Bell Bottom, and Prithviraj, there are chances that Ram Setu movie will either release on Diwali 2021 or at the beginning of 2022.

Akshay Kumar's Laxmii movie failed to impress the audience as many deemed it comical rather than a horror movie. So, there is a chance that with a film like Ram Setu, Akshay Kumar is not going to take any sort of risk.
