People are criticizing Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar for stepping out for shooting amid the coronavirus lockdown. For the unaware, Akshay Kumar along with filmmaker R. Balki who directed Pad Man, stepped out of their home to shoot an ad campaign for the Indian government. Speaking of the same, Balki said, “Akshay and I have shot this ad-campaign for the Government of India to make people aware of 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 effortless and we all maintained social distancing. The shoot happened smoothly following hygiene protocols, ensuring minimum crew with maximum efficiency and safety.” Even though the shooting is for an ad campaign for the government to spread awareness and the crew has required permission, people are mad at Akshay Kumar. A user wrote, “Cozy up to the prime minister and tout some donations and then you get special privileges. You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours… A tale as old as time.” Another comment read, “Bjp .. i wonder whether the same sort of permission would have been given to Anurag Kashyap !!” “25 cr diye h … enko kon rok sakta hai,” read another comment.
