The Akshay Kumar-starrer Bell Bottom completed shooting in the UK earlier this month, and the film unit is now headed back to India. The film co-stars Vaani Kapoor, Huma S. Qureshi and Lara Dutta Bhupathi, and a teaser was released recently.
The teaser is dominated by Akshay Kumar’s swagger to the beats of a retro score. Released on October 5, the teaser had garnered over 25 million views on YouTube in less than 24 hours.
Recalling the arduous task of filming in a foreign locale amid the pandemic, producer Jackky Bhagnani said, “This week has been special for everyone. The response to the ‘Bell Bottom’ teaser has truly been overwhelming. It was a difficult phase to shoot given the current scenario but it’s heartwarming to see our hard work being appreciated.”
The film is a spy thriller set in the eighties. Directed by Ranjit M. Tewari, the film is slated to release on April 2 next year. –ians/sug/vnc
