Akshay Kumar is having to rejig the release order of his films, as ‘Bell Bottom’ which was scheduled for April has now been pushed back to allow for the delayed ‘Sooryavanshi’ to release first.
Reported on Mid-Day, Rohit Shetty’s cop-verse ‘Sooryavanshi’ was meant to release back in March 2020 but was later put on hold due to the pandemic, is now slated to hit the big screens over the Holi weekend.
To avoid both films coming out so close to each other, a source said makers are now looking at a summer release for ‘Bell Bottom’, “An Akshay film usually translates to big box-office numbers. After the dry spell of the past several months, exhibitors and distributors are relying on tentpole films to bounce back into business. Naturally, they don’t want Sooryavanshi and Bell Bottom to come in such close proximity. So, the cop actioner will release first; meanwhile, the makers of Bell Bottom are exploring a release window in May or June.”
