Coronavirus has put everything thing on hold, the whole world is facing an all-time low. The lockdown due to Coronavirus has made each and everything standstill.
Bollywood is no different and several sectors of it have taken a huge blow on the economic front. The industry is known for its larger-than-life sets, and now in the lockdown, many movie sets have had to be demolished because of the uncertainty surrounding the lockdown period. Earlier, it was being said that the set built for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi had to be demolished
Now, the news is coming that a palace built for Akshay Kumar and Manushi Chhillar’s Prithviraj will be demolished. And a new set will be put up indoors once the shoot resumes.
The set was designed to be a palace from the era of the 12th century, and reportedly the same arena where Akshay Kumar was to shoot his fight sequence.
Talking about the demolition of the palace, a source told Mid-Day, “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 pull it down. Akshay had filmed a major portion of the Chandraprakash Diwedi directed drama at the Dahisar set before the lockdown was announced, but some crucial sequences have yet to be shot.”
The official spokesperson of Yash Raj Films confirmed this development and said that “the set will now be put up indoors once shooting resumes.”
