Akshay Kumar’s look from his upcoming film with Tinu Desai has been unveiled.

Kumar, who began shooting for the untitled film this week in the UK, will be seen playing the role of Jaswant Gill in his biopic. Kumar is seen donning a turban in a complete Sikh avatar. The film is produced by Pooja Entertainment.

“The principal shoot of the film will take place in this 100 acre plot over a period of 2 months. While the team started shooting on July 4, it is expected to continue until the end of August before calling it a wrap. Various shooting spots have been created in this multi-acre land, and the unit insists that this is the largest production unit for a Bollywood film in the UK. Over 300 people are involved in shooting of the film,” a source was cited in PinkVilla saying.

The film will be based on Gill, a chief mining engineer, who rescued 65 miners stuck inside a coal mine. The source added, “Special coal mining unit, sticking to the authenticity of the era gone by, has also been recreated in the UK. That’s not all, the team will also be shooting at a real coal mining spot in the outskirts of London.”
