Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is well known for his ability to start and finish several films in one year. However, in 2020, the pattern underwent a change as shoots had come to a halt. Despite that, Akshay became one of the first stars to kick off international shoots with Bell Bottom and wrapped it up successfully without any COVID issues. And now, as per a recent report, Akshay is all set to kick off his next, Bachchan Pandey with Kriti Sanon in the New Year.
As per a report in Mid-Day, Akshay and Kriti will soon be heading to Jaisalmer in Rajasthan to shoot Bachchan Pandey. The film is reportedly slated to go on floors on January 6, 2021. The report stated that a 30-day schedule has been planned for Bachchan Pandey with Akshay and Kriti and apparently over 100 people will be heading to Rajasthan to shoot the action-comedy. Reportedly, Bachchan Pandey will star Akshay as a gangster who is aspiring to be an actor.
A source said, ‘Along with Kriti Sanon, Akshay Kumar is likely to start shooting on January 6. He plays a gangster, who is also an aspiring actor. A 30-day shoot is being planned in Rajasthan. The actors will return to the bay in February.’ The film is helmed by Farhad Samji and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. An earlier report also had stated that the team of Bachchan Pandey was securing permissions to shoot in Jaisalmer amid the new normal.
