Initially It was being said that since there is still uncertainty of theatres opening to 100% occupancy, the Bell Bottom makers, producer Jacky Bhagnani and Vashu Bhagnanihave decided to take a digital route since the final product is ready for a few months.
But now, Yet another rumour bites the dust. Off late, there have been murmurs around Akshay Kumar starrer Bell Bottom opting for straight-to-OTT release. It was being said that since there is still uncertainty of theatres opening to 100% occupancy, the makers have decided to take a digital route since the final product is ready for a few months. As it hasturned out, there is no truth to any such developments.
“This is what you a call a typical ‘fake news’”, informed a source, “Bell Bottom was always made for theatres and that’s how it will remain as well. There are some news pieces that have some sort of semblance at least but this one has no head or tail to it. It is truly a figment of someone’s imagination and pretty mischievous as well. It was truly uncalled for.”
In fact the ‘news’ was all the more surprising as it came at a time when there are talks of AkshayKumar’s another biggie i.e. Sooryavanshi bracing up for a theatrical release soon.
Let us tell the readers that Akshay Kumar and the entire team of ‘bellbottom’ shot the film in Glasgow and London. Sharing a picture after the film’s wrap-up, Akshay Kumar wrote: “Mission accomplished! After a long but fruitful schedule, grateful to have shot and completed #Bellbottom during the pandemic. Now it’s time to head back #JetSetGo.”
Bell Bottom will open in theatres on April 2,2021. Pooja Entertainment, the production house which is backing the film, described the teaser with these words on YouTube: “Shot in the highlands of Scotland, Pooja Entertainment’s Bell Bottom has Akshay Kumar in the lead playing a RAW agent on the trail of a mystery and the film’s retro theme brings back the Eighties.”
