Last year, in March, superstar Akshay Kumar announced his entry into the digital world with Amazon Prime Video’s The End. At the launch show in March 2019, Akshay was seen setting himself on fire as part of a stunt for the evening. The head of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Salke, had expressed that she is super excited about the series. She said, “The scale at which The End is being conceived is enormous. The storyline and the action sequences have been brilliantly crafted.”
According to the report of MidDay producer Vikram Malhotra said that
“The show was to roll in December tentatively, with Akshay joining us in January 2021. But, it has been four months [into the lockdown], and it will be a few more months before normalcy is restored. Akshay, too, has other commitments. So, we are hoping to get into production by the second half of 2021,”
And Also said “It isn’t a project that we, as makers, can tweak and start [shooting] next month. We’ve used the time to improve the material.” While the show was to be filmed in India and key locations abroad, he admits that the venues can only be finalised “after the situation stabilises.”
The series, which is one of the streaming giant’s biggest projects in India, should have gone on floors in 2020, however, due to the epidemic, shooting of the series has been postponed for 7 months.
