Vaani Kapoor to play opposite Akshay Kumar in thriller, Bell Bottom
The actress says she is ‘super excited’ to star in the film
Actress Vaani Kapoor has landed the leading lady role opposite Akshay Kumar in the upcoming film, Bell Bottom.
The War actress shared a photo of herself and Akshay, who starred in Pad Man, on her Instagram account to share the news with her fans. Vaanika expressed her excitement with fans, “Super Super Thrilled & Excited for this one! Teaming up with the one & only Akshay Kumar. This is the first time the pair have acted beside each other on screen.
Bell Bottom is a spy thriller set in the ‘80s – think vintage cars and retro suits. Directed by Ranjit M Tewari, the plot was inspired by true events. Akshay first shared a poster for the film in November 2019, which sees him donning a vintage style mustache.
Originally set for release in January 2021, the film was pushed back to April 2021 because of a scheduling clash with Akshay’s new film Bachchan Pandey which will release in January 2021. Filming will begin within the next couple of months. Vaanika wrote, “(I) can’t wait!!! #Bellbottom Let's get this started.
