Akshay Kumar's Bell Bottom avoids clash with Bachchan Pandey; the spy-thriller will now release on 2 April 2021
With the release date of Bachchan Pandey shifted to 22 January, 2021, another Akshay Kumar film, Bell Bottom, will now release in April later in the year.
Akshay Kumar, on Monday, has announced that his upcoming spy thriller Bell Bottom will now release on 2 April, 2021. While revealing the new development, he joked that there were enough memes about his films clashing at the box office with each other, hence, to avoid the clash he is pushing ahead the release date.
Bell Bottom's new poster sees Akshay wearing a coffee brown blazer and matching trousers, sprawled across a vintage car. The actor looks extremely suave as he poses alongside the red car. A flight is seen taking off behind him amid grim and dark clouds.
