As we know shooting had started for some films and television shows with precautions. Due to coronavirus lockdown sets are dismantled in many parts of the country. Now, Akshay and the entire team of Bell Bottom will zoom off to London next month to flag off their first schedule for the actioner.
According to a source who told Pinkvilla, “The film is set in the ’80s with Akshay playing a special agent who helps solve one of the biggest conspiracies that shook the country. But there are three leading ladies in the film. Vaani Kapoor plays Akshay’s wife and romantic interest in the film, whereas there’s a special character that Lara Dutta will be seen essaying. Lara will play the role of Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and has an extremely pivotal part to play in the entire narrative. The film is set in the times when Indira led the country and the makers wanted a good performer to step in for the role and they thought of Lara.” This will also be a reunion for Akshay and Lara after five years. They have done several films, with Singh is Bliing being their last together.
The film rolls out now and will stick to its April 2021 date. “They needed a different set up to shoot the film and the producers have taken proper permission from the UK Government for shoot. The entire cast, including Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi and Lara Dutta along with Akshay, Jackky Bhagnani (the producer) and Ranjit Tiwari (director) are expected to fly sometime in the next few weeks,” our source adds.
