Akshay Kumar recently shared a picture on his social media after wrapping up his shoot schedule for the film Mission Cinderella. The film also starrs Rakul Preet Singh. The actor, who had started shooting for the film in August in London, had to unfortunately come back to India to tend to his ailing mother who later passed away last month.
The actor then jet off back to work with his family to fulfil his professional commitments. This shows how the actor is purely dedicated to his work and doesn’t allow hurdles to break him down.
A source close to the actor now reveals that the production house has cast many Indians and Pakistanis who are residing in UK. The makers had erected a set which looks like a hill station from India. A big ground in London was hired to erect the sets. They were shooting for a sequence where they had recreated a big fair. Due to Covid restrictions, the makers weren’t able to take junior artists from India and so they decided to cast local people. More than 100 Indians and Pakistanis are a part of this sequence.
The source adds that a Punjabi dance number was shot involving the two lead actors. A huge mela (fair) is the backdrop of the song. A Punjabi bhangra number was shot for around five days. The peppy dance number which features Akshay and Rakul was choreographed by Ganesh Acharya. While the shooting of the film is complete, the patch work will be done in India.
A remake of the hit Tamil psychological thriller Ratsasan (2018), Mission Cinderella is directed by Bell Bottom director Ranjit Tiwari.
Akshay has ten confirmed projects — nine films and one web series — in different stages of production. These are Sooryavanshi, Atrangi Re, Prithviraj, Bachchan Pandey, Rakshabandhan, Mission Cinderella, Ram Setu, OMG – Oh My God 2, Gorkha and the web series The End.
