On Monday, Akshay Kumar shot for an advertisement campaign after taking permission from authorities amid lockdown.
Akshay Kumar is back at work, on Monday shot for an advertisement campaign regarding the “post lockdown responsibilities” at Kamalistan studio after taking permission from authorities along with R Balki. He is also the first actor to shoot amid Coronavirus pandemic lockdown.
Talking about the campaign and the shoot, FWICE general secretary, Ashok Dubey, told ETimes, “Yugal Kishore had written a letter to Commissioner of Police and he granted them the permission. They shared the details with us and we also agreed that they could shoot with the necessary precautions. This is a government advertisement so we also didn’t disturb them. They abided by the rules of the government and completed the shoot with minimum crew.”

Further, director R Balki told PTI, “This is an ad for the health ministry featuring Akshay Kumar about the post lockdown responsibilities of each one of us. We need to get back to work but ensure our safety and those of others. So at our shoot we did the same. Like getting back to work with social distancing, sanitised outdoor set, disinfectant screen, masks. We got used to it in a few minutes. There was minimal crew and very strict protocols.”
Many pictures and videos from the ad-shoot have been doing the rounds on the internet in which Akshay, Balki, and the team are seen wearing masks. They also had their temperature checked by medical personnel in PPE suits.
On the work front, Akshay will be seen in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ and next will also be seen in a special appearance in Aanand L Rai’s upcoming film ‘Atrangi Re.’ He will also feature in Raghava Lawrence directed horror-comedy film ‘Laxmmi Bomb’
