As we know film industry is suffering from lockdown due to second wave of coronavirus. But fans of superstar Akshay Kumar are in for a treat once the restrictions are lifted. Two of the actor’s films, ‘Sooryavanshi’ and ‘Bell Bottom’ are ready for a release.
Directed by Rohit Shetty, ‘Sooryavanshi’ was scheduled to release on April 30, but owing to the rising cases of coronavirus, the makers had postponed the film’s release. Akshay Kumar’s another film, ‘Bell Bottom’, is slated to get a theatrical release on May 28, this year, but with the current state of lockdown in the country, that seems highly unlikely.
Lately there has been rumours that both the films are expected to have an Independence Day release and rights of ‘Bell Bottom’ have reportedly been sold to Amazon Prime Video.
Akshay Kumar has now given a clarification on the rumours and has said details of the release are purely speculative right now.
“I’m humbled at the excitement and eagerness of my fans regarding the release of Sooryavanshi and Bell Bottom, and want to thank them from the bottom of my heart for all their love. However, at this point, it is purely speculative to say that both films will release on Independence Day. The producers of both films are working out the release dates and will make announcements at the right time,” Kumar said in a statement.
‘Sooryavanshi’ is directed by Rohit Shetty and is a part of his Cop Universe after Singham and Simmba. Akshay Kumar plays the titular role while Katrina Kaif as the female lead while in spy thriller, ‘Bell Bottom’, Akshay will play the role of a RAW agent. It is based on the plane hijacks that took India by storm in the early 1980s. Lara will essay the role of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, who was in power at that time. Vaani will play Akshay’s wife in the film.
