In August, Bell Bottom became the first Bollywood movie to start filming amid COVID-19 pandemic, as the movie's team flew down to the UK. After nearly two weeks of quarantine period, the team started working on the project on August 20. Reportedly, Akshay even broke his rule of working eight hours a day and pulled off double shifts to compensate for the lost time.
With safety, time to get things moving again: Akshay
Talking about the project, Akshay recently said, "The new normal has made us realize a different way of working that none of us could have imagined. I hope this encourages film industries globally to do what they do best and start entertaining audiences again." The star hoped that Bell Bottom's successful shooting would reassure others that, "it's time to get things moving again (sic)."
"Extremely humbling experience," said producer
"I am really grateful that we could complete the shoot. The health and safety of everyone were of utmost importance and we ensured that everything was in order. It was an extremely humbling and grateful experience," said co-producer Deepshikha Deshmukh.
Bell Bottom is a spy thriller movie directed by Ranjit M Tewari. It has been co-produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani and Nikkhil Advani under the banners of Pooja Entertainment and Emmay Entertainment. Also starring Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta and Huma Qureshi, the movie is planned to hit theaters around the world on April 2, 2021.
