Akshay Kumar could be gearing up for his second digital release. After Laxmii released on Disney+ Hotstar, now his upcoming periodic spy thriller Bell Bottom could be hitting an OTT platform in the coming months. According to a recent report, the makers are in talks with Amazon Prime Video for an exclusive release.
Report said that the terms of the deal are currently being discussed and it could take a month’s time. The source was quoted as saying, “The producers of Bell Bottom – Jackky Bhagnani and Vashu Bhagnani – have started conversations with Amazon Prime to explore the possibility of a direct to digital release, and so far, both the parties seem to be on the same page.”
“They are discussing various prospects including the financials, and there might be some clarity within the next one month. But at this point of time, team Bell Bottom is definitely exploring the direct to digital option of release,” the source added.
Earlier, it was being said that Bell Bottom which was shot in 35 days, will see a theatrical release on April 2, 2021. However, the film is still in its post-production stage and the release had to be postponed for two months. Last week, another report revealed that Akshay Kumar-starrer Sooryavanshi could release in the month of March or April.
