Actor Vaani Kapoor will star alongside Akshay Kumar in Bellbottom. Directed by Ranjit M Tiwari, the espionage thriller is set in the 80s and tells the story of India’s forgotten heroes. The film is scheduled to go on floors this year. It is written by Aseem Arrora and Parveez Shaikh.
Vaani was last seen in War (2019), co-starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. The actor made her Bollywood debut in Shuddh Desi Romance (2013). She also starred in Befikre (2016) and Aaha Kalyanam (2014).
Sharing her excitement for Bellbottom, Vaani says, “I am excited to share the screen space with Akshay sir. It is definitely a script I instantly clicked with and knew I wanted to be part of. I am also thrilled to partner with Pooja Entertainment, who have already made me feel at home at this initial stage of our film. I’m eagerly waiting to start shooting Bellbottom.”
Producer Jackky Bhagnani adds, “Vaani is an intelligent and an effective actor and I have loved all her performances. The female lead in Bellbottom has to be in sync with Akshay’s screen persona. The role is meaty and I am confident that Vaani will ace this one.”
Bellbottom is set to be released on April 2, 2021.
