This year, Akshay Kumar will be seen in films like Sooryavanshi, Laxmmi Bomb, Prithviraj, and Bachchan Pandey. He has also announced his first release of 2021 and it will be a movie titled Bell Bottom. The movie is set in the 80s and it is inspired by true events.
Everyone was keen to know which actress will star opposite Akshay in the film. And now, according to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Mrunal Thakur has been roped in to star opposite Akshay in the film. A source said, “Nikkhil (Advani) 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, Mrunal has some really interesting films in her kitty right now. She will be seen in Toofan opposite Farhan Akhtar and will play the female lead in Jersey remake.
