Coronavirus has cost a lot of lives since its outbreak and also affected many nations economically. It would take years to recover the loss caused by this pandemic. Even in the Entertainment industry, shoots and other production processes have been put on hold which is costing a major loss to the makers. Reportedly, Akshay Kumar‘s upcoming period-drama ‘Prithviraj’s sets will be destroyed before the monsoon, even though scenes are yet to be shot.

According to a report in Mid-Day, a source was quoted saying as, “The head honchos of Yash Raj Films had kept the set standing over the past two months, hoping that the situation would improve soon. However, with the rains only weeks away, it doesn’t seem feasible to retain the set any longer. The makers are currently procuring necessary permission to have it pulled down. Akshay had filmed a major portion of the Chandraprakash Dwivedi directed drama at the Dahisar set before the lockdown was announced, but some crucial sequences have yet to be shot.”

The news was confirmed a Yash Raj Films’ spokesperson, saying, “This information is accurate. The set will now be put up indoors once shooting resumes.” The report also states that sixty per cent of the film’s shoot is complete so far.

‘Prithviraj’ is based on the life of Rajput ruler Prithviraj Chauhan. The film will mark the Bollywood debut of Miss World Manushi Chhillar.
