‘Bell Bottom,’ set in the 1980s, caused quite a sensation last year when it became the first Bollywood film to begin and finish filming in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, with the whole cast and staff flying to Scotland to shoot the picture in a bio-bubble.
The film, directed by Ranjit M Tewari and written by Aseem Arrora and Parveez Sheikh, stars Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta, and Huma Qureshi in pivotal roles. Due to the second wave of COVID-19, the release date for ‘Bell Bottom’ was delayed twice.
‘Bell Bottom,’ a spy thriller, would cast Akshay in the character of a RAW agent. It is based on the airline hijackings that spread through India in the early 1980s. Lara will play former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, who was in office at the time. In the film, Vaani will play Akshay’s wife.
Aside from Bell Bottom, Akshay is working on a number of projects, including Atrangi Re, Raksha Bandhan, Bachchan Pandey, Sooryavanshi, Prithviraj, and Mission Lion.
