Addressing reports that the movie in question will be a remake of 2019 Kannada film Bell Bottom, the actor said, it is an original script inspired by true events. Apart from Nikkhil Advani, the movie will also be co-produced by Vashu Bhagnani.
Earlier a source claimed, “The Akshay Kumar starrer is an official adaption of a Kannada film, titled Bell Bottom. It released earlier this year and was directed by Jayathirtha with Rishab Shetty and Haripriya playing the lead roles. It was one of the biggest Kannada hits of 2019 and was loved for its entertainment quotient and for bringing the 80s era alive beautifully on screen. Nikkhil Advani saw the film and instantly decided to buy its remake rights as he saw immense potential in the film. He also decided to let Ranjit Tiwari handle it. Though his first film Lucknow Central failed, Nikkhil trusts his capabilities. And then Akshay came on board too. The scripting of the film is underway and is expected to be completed before the end of 2019.”
The film Bell Bottom will kick start its shoot by mid next year and will hit the big screen on 22nd January 2021.
