Ram Setu is an entertaining adventure drama starring Akshay Kumar, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Nushratt Bharuccha.
Ram Setu, Akshay Kumar’s fourth release of the year, which was released around the Diwali festival, did not set the cash registers ringing, but it did manage to resurrect Kumar from the box office failures of his previous three films.
According to Box Office India, the film ranks sixth among the year’s top first-week earners and is Kumar’s best first-week earner this year. Ram Setu has done Rs 58.90 crore in business so far, with an initial investment of Rs 15.25 crore.
However, given that the film was a festive release (it was released the day after Diwali), the performance has fallen short of expectations.
