Bell Bottom OTT Release
Many reports are buzzing around social media about Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film, Bell Bottom. Bollywood star Akki, known for his realistic roles, is again geared up to shock the audience with a new avatar in the spy-thriller. Although there are no announcements about the film’s release, recently, co-producer Nikhil Advani passed a glimpse in his interview. After the pandemic, the film industry has passed through a storm of change.
Due to the restrictions in theatrical releases, the makers launched the big-budget movies across the OTTs. And following the trend, it seems, Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film is next in the sequence. Although the makers initially planned a theatrical release, the second wave of covid is most likely to alter their decisions. Earlier, the movie was scheduled to land in the cinema halls on May 28. However, the makers postponed the release.
Nikhil Advani, in his recent interview, quoted that Bell Bottom’s OTT release is being considered. However, the final decision for monetization lies in the hands of Pooja Entertainment.
