Anand Pandit welcomes Abhishek Bachchan back on the sets of The Big Bull
Producer Anand Pandit deploys additional measures to keeps sets sanitised and secure.
Veteran Producer Anand Pandit welcomed lead actor Abhishek Bachchan back on the sets of his biographical crime saga, The Big Bull after nearly a six months break. The super pace thriller had barely a few days of shoot remaining when the country went under lockdown.
But the six months seems to have tested everyone’s faith and patience when actor Abhishek Bachchan tested positive for COVID-19 and spent nearly a month in the hospital before recovering fully. Abhishek was discharged in August and now has joined the cast and crew of The Big Bull to shoot his portions so that the film can reach the finishing line this month.
An excited Anand Pandit says, “The aim is to finish the film’s patchwork by mid-October. Abhishek is a good-natured trooper and is going out of his way to accommodate us despite having battled COVID-19. He is thankfully totally healthy now and as enthusiastic as ever. It is a blessing to have him as our lead star.”
A team player, Abhishek wants to ensure that everyone on sets is totally safe. In his own way trying to help the producers fine-tune the sanitisation and safety measures on set. Not to mention that he has not made any special requests for himself.
“We would rather err on the side of caution and so we are COVID proofing every inch of our sets. We have a team of COVID-19 watchdogs supervising everything and there is always at least one expert available to us at any given time.”, Say Pandit
Pandit says, he and his cast and crew have not let any temporary setback define the experience of making The Big Bull. He says, “This has been a rewarding journey despite the occasional delays and with Abhishek back on sets, we are all even more energised and motivated than before.”
