Akshay Kumar is one of the leading actors in the country and his films are known to leave a solid impact among the viewers. He was last seen in Laxmii, the Hindi remake of the Tamil blockbuster, Kanchana. Laxmii was directed by Raghava Lawrence who made his debut in Hindi cinema with the film. Laxmii had a direct OTT release on Disney Hotstar platform for the festive occasion of Diwali and it had a record breaking viewership. Up next, Akshay Kumar has two films lined up for release - Sooryavanshi and Bellbottom and both films are completed. Sooryavanshi is planned for a theatrical release and the film has got huge expectations among the fans.

The release has now been stalled due to the second wave of Covid 19 virus. Sooryavanshi is a mass masala action entertainer, directed by blockbuster filmmaker Rohit Shetty. On the other hand, Bell Bottom was completely shot during the Covid times and the entire cast and crew took the precautionary measures during the shoot. Bell Bottom is directed by Ranjit M Tewari and it is touted to be a stylish spy thriller. Very recently, a section of media reported that Bell Bottom will skip the theatrical release and come out on an OTT platform very soon and this news created a huge buzz on social media. Having said that, the makers have now made an important clarification, requesting the fans not to believe in the speculations.

The makers also requested the media to refrain from reporting such stories. The official statement from Pooja Entertainment (production house of Bell Bottom) read, "Pooja Entertainment would like to quash all speculation in some sections of the media regarding the release of our upcoming film, Bellbottom. Any announcement regarding the impending release of the film will be made by Pooja Entertainment at the opportune time. Nobody other than Pooja Entertainment has the mandate to make any statements with regards to any development with the film. We would like to request the media to support us as you always have and refrain from publishing any information that is not officially communicated by us. Stay safe and mask up. Our prayers with one and all.".

However, there is no denial about the OTT release rumours in this clarification statement and let us wait for an official word from the team. Bell Bottom features Vaani Kapoor as the female lead, while Huma Qureshi, Lara Dutta, Denzil Smith, Adil Hussain, and Aniruddh Dave play supporting roles.
