The Scottish highlands, a taut breathless pace, Akshay Kumar's inimitable style stamped all over it and yes, a hark back to the eighties - the BellBottom teaser hits home and how. Shot in the highlands of Scotland, the crisp teaser offers glimpses of an enormous geographical scale and lavish production value. Released barely hours after the film team landed back in the country after a packed 60 day start-to-finish schedule, the sneak peek into the retro spy thriller delivers on its promise and has hit the right notes.
The 30-second long teaser opens with Akshay Kumar’s BellBottom pants while he makes his way to the aircraft. Soon the video moves to his new avatar. Apart for Akki, no glimpses of leading actresses and other actors are shown in the teaser. Pooja Entertainment's BellBottom has Akshay Kumar in the lead with the usual panache playing a RAW agent on the trail of a mystery and the film’s retro theme brings back the eighties rather convincingly.
The film written by Aseem Arrora and Parveez Shaikh stars Vaani Kapoor as the leading lady, along with Huma Qureshi and Lara Dutta Bhupathi and is directed by Ranjit M Tewari. Pooja Entertainment presents in association with Emmay Entertainment ‘Bellbottom’ Produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani. A Pooja Entertainment production-BellBottom is set to release on 2nd April, 2021.
Earlier, Akshay Kumar had said, “It's teamwork and I am grateful to each and every member of the cast and crew from the spot dadas to the light dadas to the technicians to the make-up dadas to my lovely heroines Vaani, Lara, Huma, my director Ranjit and to Vashuji and the production team who believed in our audacious plan. The new normal has made us realise 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. I hope our shoot during the pandemic reassures others that keeping all safety in mind it’s time to get things moving again.”
