Bell Bottom is the remake of popular Kannada film by the same name that was released last year to a good response at the Box Office. The film is believed to be an espionage thriller and is based on real-life events of an unsung hero. It is being directed by Ranjit Tiwari who also helmed the original. Bell Bottom is produced by Nikkhil Advani who first came up with the idea of remaking the film in Hindi. As mentioned in a few reports, the producer loved the film so much that he immediately bought the remake rights. Pooja Entertainment’s Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani and Deepshikha Deshmukh are co-producing the film.
Akshay had announced the film in November last year and revealed that it’s going to be released on January 22. However, the actor later announced a change in the release date. Now, with the COVID-19 situation, seems like the film will be delayed further. Akshay has now got six films in the pipeline including Laxmmi Bomb and Sooryavanshi that are ready for release. The other films are Bachchan Pandey, Prithviraj, and Atrangi Re. While Akshay had started shooting for Prithviraj before the pandemic, the rest two films are still waiting to go on the floors. Bell Bottom, meanwhile, was expected to go on the floors in the middle of this year.
