Akshay Kumar is the first superstar to start shooting for a movie amid the pandemic. The actor is currently in Scotland shooting for his film Bell Bottom. And now, according to a report in Mid-day, after Bell Bottom, the actor will resume the shooting of Prithviraj in October.
The shooting of Prithviraj was stalled in March due to the pandemic, and before the rains, the makers had to dismantle the sets of the film. However now, soon they will start to rebuild the sets.
A source told the tabloid, “From October 1, the production design team will begin constructing two sets — the palace will be recreated in a ground in Jogeshwari, with another small set-up at Madh island. Considering it’s an event film, Adi (Aditya Chopra) has instructed his team to ensure that the grandeur of the subject is not lost. The smooth shoot of Bunty Aur Babli 2 has boosted the confidence of the production house, and Adi is sure the team will be able to shoot the big-budget movie despite the restrictions.”
