Akshay Kumar’s upcoming mega thriller ‘The End’ for Amazon Prime Video, has been deferred by seven months due to the current coronavirus pandemic.
The lavish project, which was announced in March 2019, is expected to go on the floors in the second half of 2021.
Vikram Malhotra of Abundantia Entertainment said, “The show was to roll in December tentatively, with Akshay joining us in January 2021. But, it has been four months [into the lockdown], and it will be a few more months before normalcy is restored. Akshay, too, has other commitments. So, we are hoping to get into production by the second half of 2021.
The producer currently is promoting his latest release ‘Shakuntala Devi’, out today on the digital platform. Talking about skipping theatrical releases for digital, he said, “The director, actors, writers and other producers unanimously decided that it was best not to hold off the release, given the uncertain times. Vidya [Balan] and I wanted the story to be told to the audience because our material was ready by March.”
