As slowly and steadily, the film industry is coming back on track, Pooja entertainment is the the first production house to start shooting with a complete schedule of its big-budget spy thriller Bellbottom with Akshay Kumar in the lead.
The film’s extended shoot will begin soon with top-grade medical facilities and technologies. Apart from medical-grade masks and face shields, after consulting medical experts, the production house is making it mandatory for all cast and crew to wear a wristwatch that will constantly monitor their oxygen levels, body temperature, blood pressure, stress levels, and pulse, reported Bollywood Hungama.
Jackky Bhagnani, the producer of the film, said, “I am truly grateful to Akshay Sir without whom this film and this shoot would have been impossible. He is a rock and our guiding light. It is only after every department and every individual was assured of the measures taken that we are embarking on this journey. From a doctor on the set at all times to keep the entire set disinfected at all times, safety first is our mantra. It’s a challenge but it makes Bellbottom even more special for all of us.” The health of his unit is of utmost importance, said Jackky.
“The new normal has made us realise a different way of working that none of us could have imagined. As much as I’m happy to be back on the sets, it’s also important for us to take care of everything around us. Pooja Entertainment has laid down a safety plan for our shooting schedule abroad. We hope these measures help us accomplish a smooth and safe shoot.” said actor Akshay Kumar.
The film, Bellbottom, was announced last year with Akshay Kumar in the lead, and Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi, and Lara Dutta. Bellbottom written by Aseem Arora & Parveez Shaikh is set to release next year.
