On the professional front, Akshay recently revealed that he will co-star with Bhumi Pednekar in Aanand L Rai’s upcoming feature film “Rakshabandhan.”
He’ll next be seen in ‘Bell Bottom,’ which was supposed to be shown in theatres on May 28, 2021, but was postponed, and the new release date has yet to be revealed by the producers. The film takes place in the 1980s and is about one of India’s unsung heroes. The upcoming film, directed by Ranjit M Tewari, also stars Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi, Lara Dutta, and Adil Hussain in lead roles.
Akshay will play the character of a RAW agent in the spy thriller. It is based on the airline hijackings that spread through India in the early 1980s. In the film, Vaani will play Akshay’s wife, while Lara will represent former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, who was in office at the time.
