Mumbai, Sep 2 (IANS) Actress Vaani Kapoor is off to Scotland to shoot for her upcoming film BellBottom, starring Akshay Kumar. She is thrilled and says she has been waiting to be back on the sets.

“This is the first time that I’m working with Akshay sir and I know it will be a really special one. I know I will learn a lot from him. His level of dedication and passion towards his craft is just exemplary and he is an inspiration to us all. Hopefully, people will love our pairing,” she said.
“Bell Bottom” is a thriller set in the 1980s. The film also features Huma Qureshi and Lara Dutta.
Apart from “BellBottom”, Vaani currently has two other films in her kitty. The first is “Shamshera”, co-starring Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt, a dacoit drama set in the 1800s. The film casts Vaani as a dancer. The other film is Abhishek Kapoor’s untitled next opposite Ayushmann Khurrana. The film is a love story.
