Akshay Kumar-starrer movie Bell Bottom was without any doubts one of the most awaited movies of the year. The film was released today on August 19 and the fans and celebrities cannot praise the makers enough. Multiple celebrities hailed Akshay Kumar for the actor that he is and also for taking a big risk of slating a big screen release amidst the pandemic. This is the first time in a while that an Indian movie is being released in theatres ever since the second wave of the pandemic hit the country and one cannot deny Akshay’s guts and bravery for taking a bold move.

Megastar Ajay Devgn congratulated his dear friend Akshay with a lovely caption, “Dear Akki, I’ve been hearing good reviews of Bell Bottom. Congratulations Also, your leap of faith in making it a theatrical release is praiseworthy. With you in this”, to which Akshay Kumar thanked him.

Renowned filmmaker Karan Johar who has worked with Akshay Kumar in a couple of movies such as Kesari, Brothers and Sooryavanshi also tweeted, “Kudos to @akshaykumar and his team of #bellbottom for being trailblazers! Excited to watch the film soon! All my love to @EmmayEntertain @poojafilms @jackkybhagnani and the solid cast and crew of the film!”

Seems like the spy thriller is loved by many, so let's take a look at the reactions of fans on Twitter too.

Starring Akshay Kumar, Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta and Huma Qureshi, Bell Bottom is based on the real-life hijacks by the Khalistan separatists that took India by storm in the ’80s. Akshay Kumar plays the role of a RAW agent who helps free the Indian hostages and Vaani plays his wife. Lara Dutta essays the role of the former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, who was in power at that time. Huma Qureshi also plays a pivotal role in the film directed by Ranjit M Tewari.
