Amidst Lockdown, Akshay Kumar Shoots With ‘Mission Mangal’ Director R. Balki

While shoots and releases have been put on hold across the country, in wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic, Akshay Kumar has joined hands with ‘Mission Mangal’ maker R. Balki for an advertisement to raise awareness on the ‘post-lockdown responsibilities’ of citizens.

This is an ad for the health ministry featuring Akshay Kumar about the post lockdown responsibilities of each one of us. We need to get back to work but ensure our safety and those of others. So at our shoot we did the same.

R. Balki told PTI that it was like “getting back to work with social distancing, sanitised outdoor set, disinfectant screen, masks. We got used to it in a few minutes. There was minimal crew and very strict protocols”.
