The Covid-19 pandemic brought our normal life to a standstill. In the entertainment world, media houses had to switch to OTT platforms as theatres remained closed. Akshay Kumar starrer Bell Bottom was a trendsetter as the makers released the film in the theatres after a year-long hiatus. Bell Bottom, which hit the theatres on 19th August is now all set to premiere on Amazon Prime on 16th September to reach a wide range of people.

Bell Bottom helmed by Ranjit Tiwari is based on the story of a plane that got hijacked by Khalistani separatists in the 1980s during Indira Gandhi’s time as the Prime Minister of India. Akshay Kumar will be seen playing the role of Agent Bell Bottom, Vaani Kapoor will be playing the role of his wife, Lara Dutta will be seen portraying Indira Gandhi’s role, while Huma Qureshi will be playing the role of a character, who helps in evacuating the Indian citizens stuck on a hijacked plane. Akshay Kumar took to social media to reveal the news of the OTT release of Bell Bottom, which left his fans super elated.

Sharing his excitement, Akshay revealed-

After getting the theatres going, it is time to take this story to more people, and what better way to do that than releasing BellBottom on Amazon Prime Video; with a reach of 240+ countries and territories, I am hoping this tale of an unsung hero reaches audiences far and wide.

Producer Jackky Bhagnani revealed-

With BellBottom, Ranjit M Tewari and the entire cast and crew have worked hard to elevate the entertainment quotient to make an out-and-out blockbuster. Recently I have seen the audience has developed more interest in watching action thrillers that keep them at the edge of their seat. I am very happy to have collaborated with Amazon Prime Video to release the film digitally which could help us reach over 240 countries and territories worldwide.
