Akshay Kumar had announced his next film Bell Bottom, a “roller coaster spy ride.” Now, according to a report, Vaani Kapoor has been roped in to play the female lead in the movie. Vaani was last seen romancing Hrithik Roshan in the action thriller War. “The Ranjit Tewari directorial needed a fresh pair. Vaani was signed a week back and the makers, Vashu and Jackky Bhagnani and Nikkhil Advani, are working on developing a look for the actor. Vaani plays Akshay’s wife in Bell Bottom and she is a significant part of the narrative”, the report quoted. Previously, speculations were rife that that Kriti Sanon's sister Nupur Sanon would be finalised as the main cast. However, now sources suggest otherwise.
Inspired by true events, the poster of Bell Bottom that was released a few months back shows Akshay dressed in ‘80s style, leaning on a red vintage car with an airplane flying in the background. Sharing the poster, he wrote, “Get ready to go back to the 80’s and hop onto a roller-coaster spy ride, #BELLBOTTOM!”
