Bell Bottom is said to be based on the true story of a forgotten war hero during 1980’s plane hijack. While Akshay will be essaying the role of a RAW agent Lara Dutta will be seen portraying the former Prime Minister late Indira Gandhi. The thriller was among the first projects which were shot in an international location during the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic. The cast and staff were there form August to October 2020 in the United Kingdom and Scotland. The film will also see Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi and Adil Hussain.
A teaser was released by the makers' post-film shoot wrap in October where Akshay was seen donning bell-bottom pants, a crisp suit and a moustache.
With the announcement of Bell Bottom releasing on May 28 the chances of Akshay starrer movie Sooryavanshi will likely be pushed back from its scheduled release date of April 2. According to reports Sooryavanshi has been shifted to the second half of 2021 keeping in mind with South’s big star Nagarjuna’s Wild Dog releasing on April 2. Though Akshay’s Sooryavanshi will be dubbed and released in Hindi as well as Telugu the audience in the south will prefer Nagarjuna over Akshay.
