Akshay Kumar who is currently in the midst of filming for his next ‘Bachchan Pandey’, has found himself in a spot of trouble for breaching COVID-19 rules.
According to koimoi.com, Kumar and his team were in Jaisalmer shooting when local resident, Aditya Sharma, has apparently reported them for violating the rules. Sharma claims there are 100 people working on the sets of the film but a crowd of 200 would be often seen there. The other complaint was that Jaisalmer has allegedly been shown as a part of Uttar Pradesh in the film, which Sharma says is misleading especially from a tourism point of view.
Sharma has also filed the complaint against co-stars Arshad Warsi, Kriti Sanon and Jacqueline Fernandez and requested the magistrate to punish them under Section 268 (creating public nuisance), 269 (Negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life), 270 (Malignant act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life) and 283 (Danger or obstruction in public way). However the Chief Judicial Magistrate has said they are not aware of any case being filed.
‘Bachchan Pandey’ is slated to release in cinemas on 26th January 2022.
