Akshay Kumar’s spy thriller Bell Bottom became the first film to be shot abroad after the lockdown. Akshay Kumar and his Bell Bottom team arrived in Scotland by private jet for the shoot where in 35 days Akshay and the rest of the team worked in double shifts to finish the shoot ahead of schedule. After this, the makers announced that Bell Bottom is all set to release in theaters on April 2, 2021. But now Bollywood Hungama has exclusively learned that the release date of Akshay Kumar’s Bell Bottom has now been extended.
Akshay Kumar’s Bell Bottom will no longer release on April 2
“The makers of Bell Bottom have jointly decided that they will no longer release the film on 2nd April. He has postponed the release of the film by 2 months. Sooryavanshi is the real reason for pushing the release of Bellbottom. Actually, Sooryavanshi may release anytime between March 15 and April 15, so it would not be prudent to release two films of Akshay together in a gap of 30 days. The source told us.
These days the post-production work of Bell Bottom is going on and it will be completed by mid-February. “The film will be completed by mid-February. Things are slowly getting better so it would be appropriate to release it in theaters after 2 months from its scheduled release date.” The source told us.
