As the lockdown in the country and across the globe is easing, the filmmakers of the high-end espionage film ‘Bellbottom’ are ready to take their script on floors. The much-anticipated thriller starring Akshay Kumar, Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi and Lara Dutta is the first film to commence shooting after the long lockdown. The schedule of the movie begins one month from now, the entire team of ‘Bellbottom’ will be heading to the UK for the same.
Over the past few months the film industry has come to a halt, whether in India or outside. As parts of the world are showing signs of recovery from the virus, the need of the hour is to adapt and evolve with the times.
Keeping the new normal in mind, a thorough precautionary plan for the shoot has been laid down by the filmmakers. The film’s shoot not only gets the artists back on the sets but also all the people involved in the process of film-making. ‘Bellbottom’ resuming work is a step forward to normalise the current working situation in Bollywood and indeed bringing the industry back to business.
Sharing his thoughts on starting the shoot for the film, actor Akshay Kumar says, “We are glad to be able to start shooting for Bellbottom after the long lockdown. The team has made special plans and taken precautions keeping the current situation in mind. I am looking forward to the industry to begin doing what it does best and entertain the audiences again.”
Producer Jackky Bhagnani adds, “There are a number of people dependent on the film industry starting up again. We wanted Bellbottom to take shape the best way possible, but at the same time keeping the safety of the crew as our top priority. All our activities will be minutely monitored to make sure no one is at risk and we’re following all the issued guidelines. The cast and crew are on board and offering full cooperation. It’s time!”
Director Ranjit M Tewari who too is eagerly waiting to start the shoot shares, “I am immensely thankful and happy to start filming. Even during such trying times, we strive to give our best and make this film a success.”
Sharing her excitement for the film, Vaani said earlier, “I am excited to share the screen space with Akshay Sir. It is definitely a script I instantly clicked with and knew I wanted to be part of. I am also thrilled to partner with Pooja Entertainment who have already made me feel at home at this initial stage of our film. I’m eagerly waiting to start shooting Bellbottom.”
