Akshay Kumar starrer Bell Bottom was the first major release after the second wave lockdown. The film was released on Thursday, August 19 across 1,600 screens in India, with limited seating capacity. With theatres still shut in major zones including Maharashtra, the film’s overall box office revenue was affected.
The good news for Akki fans is that they can now watch the film on OTT soon! There were a lot of people who could not watch the film in theaters because of COVID restrictions.
Akshay Kumar took on his Twitter to announce that this Ranjit Tiwari directorial would be releasing on September 16 on Amazon Prime Video.

As per the earlier reports, the producer of Bell Bottom, Vashu Bhagnani, wanted to premiere the film on OTT two weeks after its release. However, with national multiplex chains negotiating the theatrical release and terms, Bhagnani had finally settled for four weeks. He was allowed to premiere the film on OTT post-September 15 without any restrictions.
Amazon Prime video even released a new trailer to announce the release date.
