Ever since this morning, pictures of superstar Akshay Kumar with ace filmmaker R. Balki have been surfacing on the internet. Interestingly, the duo shot a special ad campaign for the Government of India in order to raise awareness about the post lockdown responsibilities for every individual.
Just when the country is hit by the global health crisis with everyone locked inside their homes, Akshay and R. Balki shot for the campaign ensuring maximum safety through minimum crew, sanitized outdoor set, disinfectant screen and masks. Impressively, special permissions for the shoot were taken from the Maharashtra State Police. Directed by R. Balki and produced by Anil Naidu, the campaign is slated to go on air soon.
Opening up about the same, R. Balki said, "Akshay and I have shot this ad campaign for the Government of India to make people aware about their responsibilities post lockdown. Things might seem difficult but through this ad, we now know what all precautions need to be taken to shoot in the post lockdown era. Our producer Anil Naidu made everything seem so effortless as we all maintained social distancing. The shoot happened smoothly following all hygiene protocols, ensuring minimum crew with maximum efficiency and safety."
Akshay Kumar and R. Balki have earlier collaborated for PadMan (2018) and the latter even wrote Mission Mangal for the actor last year.
