Meanwhile, Akshay’s Bell Bottom, which is set to hit theatres on July 27, also has multiple heroines with Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi and Lara Dutta as part of the cast. The actor has also completed several films that haven’t got release dates yet due to the pandemic including Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi opposite Katrina Kaif, Bachchan Pandey that also has Kriti Sanon and Arshad Warsi and Aanand L Rai’s Atrangi Re.
Akshay made his OTT debut in 2020 with the horror-comedy Laxmii. He has also completed a schedule of Abhishek Sharma’s Ram Setu with Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrratt Bharuccha.
