Responding to a Pakistani who claims that “Bell Bottom” includes “something against Pakistan,” Akshay Kumar
When a Pakistani man suggested that “Bell Bottom” has something against Pakistan, Akshay Kumar responded while attending the Red Sea International Film Festival in Saudi Arabia.
The man said to Akshay, “My home nation is Pakistan, which is next to yours.” My request is this: You create wonderful works such as “Pad Man” and “Toilet.”Pakistan and India are also at odds with each other. There are some issues with Pakistan in your most recent film, Bell Bottom.
Akshay responded to that in a cool manner: “Just a movie, sir.” Keep things from becoming too serious. It is merely a film. Things like that are widespread. Mr., it’s only a movie.
Akshay played an Indian secret agent in the film “Bell Bottom.” It was rumored that the real-life hijackings of Indian Airlines flights by Khalistani terrorists in the 1980s served as inspiration. Along with Akshay, Huma Qureshi, Lara Dutta, and Vaani Kapoor also had lead parts in the movie.
Although the movie was highly received in India, it garnered harsh criticism abroad and was eventually banned in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Qatar.
On the professional front, Akshay’s next film will be “Selfie,” which also stars Emraan Hashmi and other actors. In Aanand L. Rai’s “Gorkha,” he also appears.
