Sidharth Malhotra and Ajay Devgn starrer ‘Thank God’ loses 2 crores due to COVID-19
Ajay Devgn and Sidharth Malhotra starrer Thank God, directed by Indra Kumar, has been waiting to release for over two years. The film also starred Rakul Preet Singh along with the two.
Filmmakers finished the script, which is an adaptation of a Danish film, post the covid-19 outbreak last year and the mahurat shot was also done in the month of January this year.
Makers planned to restart the shoot from mid-April but due to second wave of Covid in India that couldn’t happen. Because of all the delay, makers incurred a loss of approx. Rs. 2 crores.
According to sources of Bollywood Hangama, “A gigantic set for the film was already made in Film City. A bit of it was also being readied by the side as the team worked on beginning shoot for the first schedule. But when the new restrictions were put forward by the Maharashtra Government in April, the makers already predicted it would last longer than what it was initially planned for. The choice was clear: either they had to wait it out till they could shoot and pay rent for the set per day OR dismantle it and lose around approx. Rs. 2 crores. They chose the latter because given the situation, had they not brought down the set, the loss would have been many times higher.”
