Bell Bottom was originally supposed to release on the silver screens on May 28 but it got postponed due to the second wave of coronavirus. Then, the makers zeroed in on July 27, but since many states didn’t ease the restrictions on the opening of cinema halls, they once again pushed the date to August 19.
Earlier, there were speculations around the direct-to-OTT release of the spy thriller, but Vashu Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment released a statement and dismissed all the rumours. Akshay Kumar also shared the teaser of the film, which was shot in the UK, amid heightened COVID-19 safety measures.
Bell Bottom is produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh of Pooja Entertainment, in association with Emmay Entertainment’s Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani.
