Kumar reportedly had to work double shifts, breaking his strict rule of eight hours of work a day to complete the movie since shooting resumed after the Covid-19 related lockdown. Bell Bottom is the world’s first movie to be shot completely during the pandemic, according to its makers.
The film also stars Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi and Lara Dutta in pivotal roles. Along with Kumar, both Qureshi and Dutta shared the poster on Twitter.
“Shooting a film felt impossible in this environment. But this team ensured that we do it well and with flair! You guys rock!!! #BellBottomCompleted Here comes the poster!,” Qureshi tweeted. “Safety, Style & whole lot of Swag put together! This one’s super special for everything it has managed to achieve. Here’s #BellBottomCompleted Poster out now,” Dutta wrote.
The spy thriller, co-produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani, is set for a worldwide release on April 2, 2021.
Kumar has Laxmmi Bomb and Sooryavanshi lined up for release. Laxmmi Bomb, the Hindi remake of the popular Tamil horror film Kanchana, is set for a Diwali release on Disney Plus Hotstar. Kumar is also working on Prithviraj and Atrangi Re.
