Since the coronavirus outbreak and the lockdown, all shoots including films, web series have been put on hold. However, there is hope that the work on projects will resume anytime before monsoon hits the country.

According to the information, Akshay Kumar‘s period drama Prithviraj is considering demolishing a grand outdoor set which was built in Dahisar.

The set was constructed to shoot a war scene that resembles the architectural style of the 12th century. The set was erected two months ago and the makers were hopeful that the situation would improve soon and they will resume the shoot but now, retaining the construction isn’t possible. As per the report, 60% of the historical drama is completed.

“The head honchos of Yash Raj Films had kept the set standing over the past two months, hoping that the situation would improve soon. However, with the rains only weeks away, it doesn’t seem feasible to retain the set any longer. The makers are currently procuring necessary permission to have it pulled down. Akshay had filmed a major portion of the Chandraprakash Dwivedi-directed drama at the Dahisar set before the lockdown was announced, but some crucial sequences have yet to be shot,” a daily quoted a source.

Confirming the news a spokesperson of Yash Raj Films said they will rebuilt an indoor set once the situation returns to normalcy.

“This information is accurate. The set will now be put up indoors once shooting resumes,” the spokesperson told.

Directed by Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi Prithviraj is a story of Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan who stood strong and battled against Muhammad of Ghor and his ruthless invaders of India.

The film also stars Manushi Chillar, Sonu Sood and Ashutosh Rana in the pivotal roles. Prithviraj is scheduled to release in Diwali 2020.
