Mumbai, July 31: Akshay Kumar, the bottom star that was earlier scheduled to hit theaters on July 27, will now be released on August 19. The actor took to social media to announce the new release date. Directed by Ranjit M Tevari, Bell Bottom also played key roles in Vaani Kapoor, Lara Duta and Huma Qureshi.
Akshay assured his fans that he would be back to inspire them and wrote on Twitter: “Mission: To entertain you on the BIG SCREEN Date: August 19, 2021, announcement of the arrival of #BellBottom! # BellBottomInCinemasAugust19. The short video shared with the release date announcement also claims that the spy thriller is “inspired by true events,” and shows Akshay as a RAW agent and the entire film cast against an airplane backdrop.
Bell Bottom was originally scheduled to hit silver screens on May 28, but has been postponed due to the second wave of the coronavirus. Then, the makers zeroed in on July 27, but since many states didn’t ease the restrictions on the opening of cinema halls, they once again pushed the date to August 19.
Bell Bottom is produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh of Pooja Entertainment, with Monisha Advani of Emmay Entertainment, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani.
