Akshay Kumar’s Bellbottom recently found its leading lady in Vaani Kapoor. Directed by Ranjit Tewari, Bellbottom is based on real-life events and is set in the 80s. Vaani, who was last seen opposite Hrithik Roshan in War, will be seen playing Akshay’s wife in the film.
The film will be going on floors in August and will be one of the first films to resume production post the lockdown. Akshay released a new look of the film's team, starring Lara Dutta and Huma Qureshi also.
Sharing the look, he wrote, "Looking forward to doing what we do best! Time we get back to work! #Bellbottom to go on floors next month."
The team will be flying to UK to begin the shoot. Recently, Jackky Bhagnani had announced Vaani Kapoor as the female lead of the film and wrote, "Thrilled to welcome @Vaaniofficial as the leading lady of #Bellbottom! Looking forward and confident that you will ace this one.”

Inspired by true events, the poster of Bell Bottom that was released a few months back shows Akshay dressed in ‘80s style, leaning on a red vintage car with an aeroplane flying in the background.
Initially supposed to release on 22 January 2021, Akshay later announced the new release date. “I know there are enough memes out there about me clashing with myself one day but 22nd January, 2021 is not that day #BellBottom will now release on 2nd April, 2021!”, he had tweeted.
