Now, with all the shoots and promotions, Akki has caught Covid one more time. As a result, he is also missing the Cannes Film Festival. Informing his decision to skip the prestigious film event due to his illness, Akshay said, “I was really looking forward to rooting for our cinema at the India Pavilion at Cannes 2022, but I have sadly tested positive for Covid-19. Hence I will rest it out. Loads of best wishes to you and your entire team, Anurag Thakur. Will really miss being there,” tagging the Union Minister for Information and Broadcast, Anurag Thakur, with whom he was to do the honours. .
