Despite the hurdles provided by the pandemic, superstar Akshay Kumar is on a roll, starting and finishing projects in a flash. He was the first actor to take the risk, with Bellbottom hitting theatres in August 2020. After that, he finished filming for Prithviraj and Atrangi Re.
He began the year 2021 with filming in Rajasthan for the action entertainer Bachchan Pandey. The film has a lot of buzz surrounding it, and it’s predicted to be one of 2022’s biggest hits.
A source tells Bollywood Hungama, “Director Farhad Samji will be kicking off the last schedule of the film from July 17. It is expected to get over on July 21. The shoot will take place in Mumbai and it goes without saying that the makers would adhere to all the safety norms.”
The source also adds, “The schedule will focus majorly on the film’s leading actress, Kriti Sanon. Some other actors in the film might also join her. It’s not clear whether Akshay Kumar would be a part of it. Even if he’s a part of this schedule, he would be there for a day at the most as he’s busy shooting for Aanand L Rai’s Raksha Bandhan.”
In addition to Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon, Jacqueline Fernandez, Arshad Warsi, Snehal Daabbi, Pankaj Tripathi, Prateik Babbar, Abhimanyu Singh, and Saharsh Kumar Shukla star in Bachchan Pandey.
