Mrunal Thakur may become the leading lady in Ranjit Tiwari’s detective thriller Bell Bottom, opposite Akshay Kumar. If things go as planned this will mean a fresh pairing.
2019 was a great year for Mrunal with some big projects including Vikas Bahl’s Super 30 opposite Hrithik Roshan and Nikkhil Advani’s Batla House opposite John Abraham and Karan Johar’s anthology Ghost Stories.
A daily quoted a source as saying, “Nikkhil was keen to sign Mrunal as he’s worked with her in Batla House (where she plays John’s wife and a news anchor) and feels that she is very talented. Bell Bottom is said to be a spy thriller revolving around a cop-cum-detective’s stories. He is a cop in the day but likes to be a sleuth when off duty. If everything goes well and Mrunal signs Bell Bottom, she will play Akshay’s romantic interest. Her role is interesting and has shades to it – someone whom Akshay’s character meets in the course of his life as a cop and falls in love with her. It’s a retro movie set in the 1980s, and the thriller revolving around one of India’s forgotten heroes. It will be a mix of all Akshay, Vashu and Nikkhil’s style of filmmaking – action, emotion and entertainment and is said to be inspired from a real-life incident.”
Well, nothing has been officially announced, let’s wait for the next update.
