Khiladi Kumar has been running high on success with his Housefull 4 ringing the box office cash registers non-stop. And his newly released music video Filhal has been warming the chart busters with its breezy romantic love theme.
After acing comedy and romance Kumar will be seen playing the role of spy in his next feature titled Bell Bottoms. The reference is clearly to the 70’s era of espionage and fashion statement of wearing flared bottom pants.
Announcing his next "roller-coaster spy ride" Bell Bottom on Sunday, Akshay Kumar exposed that the film is inspired by true events. The actor released the first look and poster of the film on his social media. Some fans pointed that it is the remake of a Kannada film to which Akshay replied, "Bell Bottom is not a remake of any film, it is an original screenplay inspired by true events."
Set in the 80s, Akshay is seen wearing a coffee brown suit with dark shades and a big moustache - all the right ingredients which make for a sophisticated secret agent.
The film is directed by Ranjit M Tewari and produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jacky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani. It is set for a release on January 22, 2021.
His filmy line up also includes Good Newwz starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani, Laxmmi Bomb and Sooryavanshi.
