Bollywood star Akshay Kumar was one of the first to begin shooting in August 2020 since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. The actor flew to the UK to complete shooting his scenes for ‘Bell Bottom’.
Changes in release date
He wrapped up shooting for the film in just 35 days and announced that it would have a theatrical release on April 2, 2021, on the occasion of Good Friday. But according to various reports, the release date of ‘Bell Bottom’ has been postponed. The makers have decided to delay the film by a time frame of two months. The main reason for the same is that Akshay Kumar’s other movie, ‘Sooryavanshi’ will be releasing in the one-month window between March 15 to April 15.
Cast and crew
This spy thriller will feature Akshay as a ‘RAW agent.’ This film is based on plane hijacks that took India by a storm in the early 1980s. With Vaani Kapoor starring as the leading lady, the movie also stars Huma Qureshi and Lara Dutta in pivotal roles. While the Vaani will be seen playing Akshay’s wife, Lara will take on the part of India’s Prime Minister from the 1980s.
Directed by Ranjit M Tewari, Bell Bottom is co-produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani, and Nikkhil Advani.
