Recently, the makers of Bachchan Pandey amassed 200 artists to shoot for an important sequence. While Arshad Warsi and Kriti Sanon finished their parts on Wednesday, Akshay Kumar will be completing his portion on Friday.
Since the unlocking began in Majarashtra, many Covid-19 restrictions were eased. Following this, the shoot of unfinished and delayed projects resumed in full swing. And Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Bachchan Pandey’ is one of them. Currently, the project has reached its final stage in terms of filming. And now, a report states that the team recently shot a sequence with 200 artists at a multiplex in Mumbai. While makers were avoiding frenzy on sets, the shoot was wrapped following all necessary Covid norms.
In this last segment, the makers required 200 artists to shoot for an important sequence of the film. Following the precautionary measures, the shortlisted artists were tested for Covid-19. Upon testing negative, these 200 junior actors were quarantined in a bio-bubble. And following a second Covid test, the artists amassed at the sets for a three-day schedule in Andheri, Mumbai. While Arshad Warsi and Kriti Sanon finished their parts on Wednesday, Akshay will be completing his portion on Friday.
Upon completion of this special sequence, the shoot of Bachchan Pandey will be wrapped up. Earlier last month, the team shot in different parts of the Thane district. Though being delayed due to the Covid crisis, the film has recovered well shooting major portions amid the pandemic.
