The film is directed by Ranjit Tiwari. Akshay Kumar is playing the role of a detective in this film. Akshay spoke exclusively to PTI on taking the risk of releasing ‘Bell Bottom’ amid the coronavirus pandemic restrictions in India. Akshay said, ‘The pressure is on everyone but I am very sure that things are going to work out. It is not only a risk but it is also a challenge. But if you haven’t taken a risk in life, what have you done?
Akshay further says, ‘I have the producer of the film with me who have also taken this risk with me and that’s how we have progressed.’ On the closure of cinemas in Maharashtra, Akshay had said, ‘It is a gamble and someone had to play this gamble. We have taken this leap and I am sure it will work and we will definitely win.
The entire shooting of the film ‘Bell Bottom’ was done during the pandemic. In Scotland, the stars with their families shot for the film in a bio-bubble. ‘Bell Bottom’ was earlier supposed to hit the screens in April, but the film got postponed due to the pandemic. Apart from Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta, Vaani Kapoor and Huma Qureshi are also in the lead roles in the film.
