The makers of Bell Bottom starring Akshay Khan dropped the film’s trailer on Tuesday. Bell Bottom is an espionage thriller set in the 1980s, specifically 1984. The film is scheduled for a theatrical release on 19 August.
In the trailer, Akshay is seen as an undercover agent (code name: Bell Bottom) who must head a covert operation to rescue over 200 hostages by neutralising four hijackers, in a hijacking which is the seventh in the past five years.
Vaani Kapoor stars as his wife and Huma Qureshi assists his team in the mission. Akshay is positioned as a multitalented operative who must save the day.
Actor Adil Hussain introduces Akshay as, “Shaadi shuda (married), sharp memory, national-level chess player…gaana seekhata hai (teaches music), Hindi, English, German, French bol aur likh leta hai (Can speak and write in Hindi, English, German, and French.”
A plane has been hijacked and grounded in Amritsar. With the remaining fuel, they can only go to three destinations: Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Muscat. The trailer shows a high-stakes operation with twists and turns, evident from Akshay’s dialogue, “Bas itna yaad rakhna (Just remember), it’s not over till it’s over.”
Bell Bottom, directed by Ranjit Tewari, was scheduled to release in April but was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Akshay Kumar had announced that the film will release in 2D and 3D. Before the trailer launch in a Delhi multiplex, he shared a video with Vaani on their way to the airport.
“As you can see, @_vaanikapoor_ and I are super excited for the #BellBottom trailer arriving today. Are you?” he wrote.
