Akshay Kumar is one of the busiest actors working in the industry.
While most of the A-list actors stick with a single project at a time, Akshay Kumar has almost 5-6 movie projects in line to get released in 2020-2021.
While all the big theatrical releases are pushed off or released on streaming platforms, Akshay Kumar’s Bell Bottom is the only Bollywood movie which has a shooting schedule abroad.
The movie is a remake of a Kannada movie with the same name.
The Kannada version of Bell Bottom was a huge hit and this is the reason that makers wanted to repeat the success formulae again on a grand scale using the star power of Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar.
The movie cast was already announced that includes Akshay Kumar, Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi, and Lara Dutta in prominent roles.
While the success of Kabir Singh allowed directors to present the exact story without changing anything to the North Indian audience.
It is believed that the audience will see the exact story with Akshay in the lead role.
However, the movie adaptation is now scene by scene in Bollywood movies probably because makers have the right to create a similar story with a different cast.
Kabir Singh, Dobara, Dil Bechara all are a perfect copy of their original movies while Devdas and Dev D are poles apart, and the same goes for all the Shakespeare adaptations made by Vishal Bhardwaj.
Bell Bottom is the adventure story of a detective that was set in the 80s. The story revolves around a Detective who is a police constable but has a very sharp mind.
He grew up watching detective movies and reading detective novels. He always dreams about becoming a detective.
Due to family pressure, the protagonist became a police constable.
Soon, he got the chance to show off his detective skills as he was assigned to solve a murder mystery. He completed the task easily by impressing everyone.
He became popular in the squad and got the chance to solve a big robbery that happened in the police station neighborhood.
The intriguing case opened Pandora’s Box and presented you with a compelling detective story.
In addition to the mystery plot, there are many subplots as well that include the romantic relationship between Akshay Kumar and Vaani Kapoor.
Bell Bottom is expected to be one of the great detective movies in Bollywood and it is expected that it would turn into a movie series if the audience loves the concept.
It shows Akshay Kumar as a detective dealing with quirky criminals in order to solve the case which is nail-biting suspense, and a fun-filled rollercoaster rise which is visually stunning as it will be presented to you in a retro frame.
Vaani Kapoor has shared the news of getting cast opposite Akshay Kumar in the movie Bell Bottom.
Vaani shared her pic with Akshay Kumar on her Instagram handles with the caption, “Super Super Thrilled & Excited for this one !! Teaming up with the one & only @akshaykumar Sir Can’t wait !!! #Bell Bottom Let’s get this started ❤️” Looking at the first look poster of the movie, it does look promising like any other movie of Akshay Kumar.
The Kannada movie Bell Bottom was released last year and got a good response from the audience. Soon after the theatrical release, the rights of the movie were purchased by Nikkhil Advani who is also producing the movie.
Sources said that the Hindi version of the movie Bell Bottom was also directed by Ranjit Tiwari who has directed the original Bell Bottom movie.
To create more buzz, the story is based on the real-life incidents of an unsung hero. Along with Nikkhil Advani, the movie is co-produced by Pooja Entertainment’s Jackky Bahgnani, Vashu Bhagnani, and Deepshikha Deshmukh.
Akshay Kumar had already announced the film is November 2019 with a promise that the movie is scheduled to release on January 22.
However, due to production delays, the release date of the movie was extended. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all the big releases will release a little later.
Akshay Kumar has 6 films in the pipeline that are either scheduled to get a theatrical release in some future date or released on streaming platforms.
The release of Sooryavanshi was shifted while Laxmi Bomb will release on Disney+ Hotstar.
In addition to this, he has Bachchan Pandey, Atrangi Re, and Prithviraj that are in the production process.
The shooting of Prithviraj was started, while Bell Bottom was also resumed its production schedule.
