Check out Akshay Kumar’s tweet on Bell Bottom release date:
The announcement comes a day after the superstar dismissed the rumours that director Vashu Bhagnani requested Akshay to reduce his fees by Rs 30 crores for the film. Recently, Bollywood Hungama did an exclusive piece that the actor had charged Rs 117 crore for the action thriller but eventually reduced some amount.
A source had stated, “Akshay knows the on-ground scenario and doesn’t want to put a lot of burden on the film. He has graciously agreed on reducing his acting fees by Rs. 30 crores. However, the catch here is, if the film earns huge returns, he will be reimbursed for the discount given at the moment. Nonetheless, if the film doesn’t overperform at the box office, his fees would stand in the range of Rs. 85 to 90 crores, as it stands presently.”
Akshay Kumar shared the article on his Twitter page and called the news fake. He tweeted, “What waking up to FAKE Scoops feels like!”
Meanwhile, Bell Bottom is a spy thriller directed by Ranjit M Tewari, and Aseem Arrora and Parveez Sheikh have penned down the story. The film also stars Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi, and Lara Dutta. Produced by Pooja Entertainment and Enmay Entertainment, the filming was done in London last year.
About being a part of the film and shooting it during the pandemic, Vaani Kapoor had said in a statement, “Shooting for ‘Bell Bottom’ was a really fun and good experience. Despite the challenges with the ongoing pandemic the team managed to have a really smooth and safe shooting experience while filming with a large crew for which they deserve all the credit.”
