Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar, who started filming for filmmaker Aanand L Rai's upcoming Atrangi Re on Friday, says that the joy of being on a movie set can never be matched.

The second schedule of Atrangi Re began in October with the Simmba actor and Dhanush resuming the shoot.

Taking to Twitter, Kumar shared a picture with Khan from the film's set, announcing the start of its latest schedule.

"The joy brought by those three magic words is unmatched: Lights, Camera, Action. Begun shooting for #AtrangiRe by @aanandlrai. Need all your love and best wishes," the 53-year-old actor wrote.
