Bachchan Pandey was announced in 2019 with Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles. It was supposed to start rolling in April last year, but due to the pandemic, the shoot was postponed.
Last year, the makers announced that Arshad Warsi and Jacqueline Fernandez have joined the cast, and today, the shooting of the film has kickstarted.
