Based on the plane hijacks that took India by storm in the 1980s, Bell Bottom was earlier at the world’s highest mobile theatre in Ladakh. To this end, Akshay shared the theatre's photo and wrote on Twitter, “Makes my heart swell with pride that BellBottom was screened at World’s highest mobile theatre at Leh in Ladakh. At an altitude of 11562 ft, the theatre can operate at -28 degrees C. What an amazing feat (sic)!"
