The cast of the movie, including Kumar, Kriti Sanon and Arshad Warsi, started shooting for the movie in Jaisalmer on January 6. Sharing the update from the sets, Sanon wrote, "1st day of 1st film shoot in 2021! With the production that gave me my very 1st film! #BachchanPandey, here we go (sic)." Sanon had worked with Nadiadwala in her Bollywood debut movie Heropanti.
Apart from shooting for the movie, the cast of Bachchan Pandey was spotted having fun on the sets. Earlier this week, Sanon was seen riding a motorcycle in Jaisalmer, along with a crew member. Warsi was also recently snapped by Kumar while he was capturing something from his camera. In a post, he thanked the latter for the perfect click.
Directed by Farhad Samji, the action comedy movie revolves around Kumar's character, a gangster who aspires to become an actor. Sanon will play the role of a journalist in the movie. Apart from them, the movie also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Prateik Babbar. The makers have reportedly planned to wrap up shooting of the film by March 2021.
Kumar will remain busy throughout 2021 with several exciting projects coming up. He will be seen in Atrangi Re, alongside actors Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush. Other upcoming movies starring Kumar are Raksha Bandhan, Prithviraj, among others.
