Now, Akshay Kumar, who’s very strict about shooting for 8 hours a day broke his this rule after 18 years. The actor understands how the producers are burdened with huge amounts of bills after the whole unit was quarantined for 14 days, he decided to take this step.
Producer Jackky Bhagnani says “Akshay sir is truly a producer’s actor and it has been a privilege to work with him. He is constantly thinking about everyone and everything. From safety measures for the entire unit to shooting schedules to the challenges faced by producers – the man is pure gold. Akshay sir is doing a double shift for the first time in 18 years. So when he suggested two units we were absolutely stunned and excited at the same time. And seeing his work discipline and respect for time, everyone on the sets is super energized and also pitching in their best. It’s like well-oiled machinery working round the clock to make this happen.”
Along with Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta, Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi, will be seen in the pivotal roles. Bell Bottom is a spy thriller that is set against the 80s backdrop.
