One of the first films to release in the theatres is Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta, Vaani Kapoor and Huma Qureshi starrer Bell Bottom. The film was supposed to be released earlier but the pandemic and the more recent second wave caused the delay in release.
Right before the film hit the theatres, the producers held a special screening in Surat, followed by a press conference for the media. Akshay Kumar, who is currently in London too joined in via a video call. During the question and answer round with the media, Akshay was asked about a potential sequel to the film, to which he said that the climax does have scope for a second instalment. He further added that a sequel is only possible if the writers come up with a script that will live upto the first film.
The filmmakers specifically chose the Rakshabandhan weekend for release as it’s a family film and will attract audiences to the theatre during the festival.
