There is no stopping actor Akshay Kumar when it comes to working! Last year, he was the first actor to shoot post the un-lock. He jetted off to Scotland to shoot Bell Bottom even when travelling services were at a halt. Well, this time around, he did something similar as he continues to shoot amidst the heavy rainfall. Akshay along with Kriti Sanon and Arshad Warsi have been shooting for Bachchan Pandey in Thane, on the outskirts of Mumbai. Now, the latest report suggests they have returned to the suburbs and will shoot today with 200 crew members for the climax sequence.
The cast and the crew will shoot the final scene at a multiplex theatre complex in Mumbai's Andheri. A unit member reveals to Mid-Day that the crowd sequence slated for the day requires 200 artistes. “Early last week, the 200-member team was tested after which they were kept in a bio-bubble. They underwent another COVID test on Tuesday. Following their negative reports, they joined the unit for the three-day stint.” The reports further mentioned that Kriti and Arshad Warsi have already shot their portion while Akshay will shoot for the next two days before calling it quits.
Since Akshay is the one who follows 'the early morning shooting' norm, the crew reached the venue by 5.30 am to set up for the day’s work. “The shoot commenced a few hours later with Kriti and Arshad. The unit restricted themselves to the multiplex area, refraining from using the entrance and exits of the adjoining mall,” said the source.
“While Arshad wrapped up his portions by 5.30 pm, Akshay will report to the set today. He has two days of work left after which he will turn his attention to Raksha Bandhan,” the source added.
