Akshay has now moved on to the much awaited action comedy, Bachchan Pandey. It’s shooting commenced in Jaisalmer on a rocking note.

Later, the excitement for the film increased as Akshay Kumar’s new look for the film was unveiled and when the producers announced that they plan to release the film on Republic Day 2022.
It has now come to light that the makers of the film have decided to recreate Uttar Pradesh in the desert city of Jaisalmer. A source reveals, “Jaisalmer has a vibrant and appealing architecture. Its havelis and other structures are old but strong and look beautiful on screen. Hence, even though Bachchan Pandey is set in Uttar Pradesh, the makers have decided to shoot some crucial scenes in the Rajasthan city. And the makers have ensured it can be passed off as an Uttar Pradesh town convincingly. They are confident that shooting in Jaisalmer would give a nice touch to the film’s look and visuals.”
