Akshay Kumar might have the strength to compete with himself, but his producers prefer otherwise. The actor's latest musical chairs began with the shift of Bachchan Pandey's release from December 2020 to January 2021. This has now caused his next film, Bell Bottom (2021), to move its release date from January 2021 to 2 April 2021.
I know there are enough memes out there about me clashing with myself one day but 22nd January, 2021 is not that day😜 #BellBottom will now release on 2nd April, 2021!@ranjit_tiwari @vashubhagnani @honeybhagnani @monishaadvani @nikkhiladvani @EmmayEntertain @poojafilms pic.twitter.com/0Z3f5ZMa3q— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) January 27, 2020
Cracking a joke at his own work rate, Kumar wrote 'I know there are enough memes out there about me clashing with myself one day but 22 January, 2021 is not that day'.
Bell Bottom is reportedly a spy-thriller set in the 1980s. The new poster also features Kumar sprawled on the bonnet of his red car, while a plane lands into a duststorm in the background.
The film is reportedly based on real-life incidents, and will now release on 2 April 2021.
