The on-going pandemic may have delayed or put on hold several Bollywood projects, but there’s certainly no stopping the B-Towners. And leading the pack of bringing on track their international shoot schedules is Team Bell Bottom. The film’s stars – Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta and Huma Qureshi were spotted at the airport today as they took a charter flight to the UK. The film’s leading actress Vaani Kapoor however did not accompany them on this shoot.
The team is enroute to Scotland for their first international shoot schedule. Accompanying them are Jackky Bhagnani (Pooja Entertainment) and Deepshikha Deshmukh (both of who are producing the film) and director Ranjit Tewari. Interestingly, also joining the Bollywood superstar Khiladi on this schedule is his family – wife Twinkle and children Aarav and Nitara – who were also seen at the airport. Lara Dutta’s ace sportstar-husband Mahesh Bhupathi and daughter Sara too joined the team.
All of them seemed to be taking all the necessary precautions and safety measures, as they all sported appropriate masks, face shields and gloves. In fact, as the paps clicked the team, Akshay even asked them all to maintain a safe distance from each other. However, the star did oblige them all as he posed for a while (in his trademark trackpants rolled up on one leg) before heading inside. Akshay also happens to be one of the first Bollywood stars to resume shooting.
Set in the 1980s, Bell Bottom is an espionage thriller about one of India’s forgotten heroes. While Akshay and Vaani play the leads, Huma and Lara are cast in pivotal roles.
