This will be Akshay's fourth film to be shot in the middle of the corona-virus pandemic.
The film was earlier scheduled to release in January 2021. However, due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the shooting of the film couldn't kickstart and hence its release was postponed. The new date of release has not been announced yet.
