The set of Akshay Kumar’s ‘Prithviraj’, will be destroyed due to the imminent monsoon season, Yash Raj Films has confirmed.
Mid-Day reports that the production costs to maintain the set are also spiralling, which is another reason behind the set being abolished. The report adds that not a single scene of the film has been shot on the set due to the lockdown.
A source told the publication, “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.”
A spokesperson for Yash Raj Films said, “This information is accurate. The set will be now be put up indoors once shooting resumes.”
The film also stars Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar.
