45 people tested Covid-19 positive from the set of this film 

The second wave of Covid-19 virus is spreading like a wildfire. A whole bunch of 45 cases were reported from the sets of Akshay Kumar starrer 'Ram Setu'. Actor Akshay Kumar himself has tested positive. The film went on floors recently and a crew of 100 junior artists was set to join the schedule from 5th of April. However, the producers intended to keep the set Covid-19 free so all the artists had to undergo the testing. According to ETimes, 45 of 100 people tested positive and have been quarantined.

FWICE (Federatioon of Western India Cine Employees) confirmed the news as , "Ram Setu has been taking full precautions. It is really unfortunate that 45 people from our Junior Artistes Association have tested positive. They have been quarantined."

A source close to the development also shared, "Every precautionary test is done a couple of days in advance. Those who don't clear the test are isolated and even paid by the 'Ram Setu' producers. This unit is so careful that even if a person is feeling low on a particular day, he/she is immediately isolated in the provisions that have been done in the vicinity of where the shoot is being conducted. You will find maximum number of PPE kits on the sets of 'Ram Setu'. Lakhs of rupees have been sent on tests and isolations since Day 1."
