Kriti Sanon and team 'Bachchan Pandey' touchdown in Jaisalmer to commence shoot; Akshay Kumar to join later - Times of India

Actress Kriti Sanon and the entire cast and crew of the upcoming film ‘Bachchan Pandey’ have touched down in Jaisalmer to commence work on their film.

Our cameras clicked the actress, co-stars Arshad Warsi and Prateik Babbar, producer Sajid Nadiadwala and his family along with crew members at the Mumbai airport early this evening. Excited to get the show on the road, the team came together for some cheery group photos in the plane.

Sharing the photos of the happy bunch, Wardha wrote in the caption, “Get Set & here we go! Super pumped as we are off to Jaisalmer for #SajidNadiadwala’s #BachchanPandey with the entire cast and crew. This one’s going to be a fun crazy ride.”

One person clearly missing in the photos was lead actor Akshay Kumar. Wardha said in her post, “@akshaykumar AKA #BachchanPandey you were missed.”

According to reports, the actor is expected to join his team shortly.

The film that was scheduled to go on floors in 2020, was delayed owing to the pandemic-induced lockdown. The film will reportedly see Kumar playing the role of a gangster, who aspires to be an actor. Kriti, on the other hand, will play the role of a journalist, who wishes to be a director.

Farhad Samji, best known for his work on ‘Housefull 4’, will direct the movie.
