Akshay Kumar starrer Rowdy Rathore, Holiday, and many others were the remake of South Indian movies. His next two releases, Laxmmi Bomb and Bachchan Pandey are also the remakes of South movies. And now, the actor is all set to star in one more South remake.
According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Akshay will be seen in a remake of Kannada film Bell Bottom. A source said, , “The Akshay Kumar starrer is an official adaption of a Kannada film, titled Bell Bottom. It released earlier this year and was directed by Jayathirtha with Rishab Shetty and Haripriya playing the lead roles. It was one of the biggest Kannada hits of 2019 and was loved for its entertainment quotient and for bringing the 80s era alive beautifully on screen. Nikkhil Advani saw the film and instantly decided to buy its remake rights as he saw immense potential in the film. He also decided to let Ranjit Tiwari handle it. Though his first film Lucknow Central failed, Nikkhil trusts his capabilities. And then Akshay came on board too. The scripting of the film is underway and is expected to be completed before the end of 2019.”
Well, looks like with the trend of South remakes turning blockbuster at the box office, Akshay too wants to cash on it.
