The much-awaited Akshay Kumar’s Bell Bottom to hit theatres on July 27 worldwide. Akshay took to social media to announce the release date of the film. Sharing a short teaser of Bell Bottom, Akshay Kumar announced that the film will release in theatres and that the wait is finally over.
Akshay Kumar in his tweet wrote, “I know you have patiently waited for the release of #Bellbottom. Couldn’t be happier to finally announce the release of our film. Arriving on the big screens worldwide #BellBottomOn27July (sic).”
Akshay Kumar took to Twitter on Monday to put an end to reports that stated that he has reduced his fee for the upcoming film Bell Bottom. Reportedly, Akshay had reduced his fee by Rs 30 crore after producer Vashu Bhagnani requested him to do so. Akshay shared the news article that claimed that he has reduced his fee and wrote, “What waking up to FAKE Scoops feels like!,” with eye-rolling emojis.
The news article claimed that Akshay gave Vashu Bhagnani a discount as the two are friends. The article also stated that Vashu asked Akshay to reduce the fee as the film’s release date has been deferred twice due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. It is interesting that within a day, Akshay Kumar chose to make the announcement of Bell Bottom release.
Vashu Bhagnani also shared the same news article and refuted the report. He wrote, “No Truth to this news at all (sic).”
Apart from Akshay, Bell Bottom also stars Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi and Lara Dutta. Bell Bottom is a spy thriller set in the 80s and is based on the plane hijacks that took India by storm back then. While Akshay plays a RAW agent while Lara Dutta essays the role of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi who was in power at that time. Vaani Kapoor plays Khiladi Kumar’s wife in the film.
