Director Indra Kumar’s ‘Thank god’ have been in pre-production for a couple of years now. The film starring Ajay Devgn and Sidharth Malhotra is an adaptation of a Danish Movie. The makers have decided to shoot the film after Sidharth Malhotra completes his previous shoot in Lucknow for the film ‘Mission Majnu.’ In January 2021 the ‘mahurat’ shot of the film was shot, the further schedule for the shoot was lined up in April 2021 but was terminated due to the second wave of the pandemic.

Amidst pandemic, the makers have suffered through a loss of 2 crores which could have been more according to the reports of Bollywood Hungama. Source of Bollywood Hungama said “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 the 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.”

The film will be produced by T-Series Films & Maruti International production, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Ashok Thakeria, Sunir Kheterpal, Deepak Mukut, Anand Pandit and Markand Adhikari and co-produced by Yash Shah.
