After roping in Hrithik Roshan, Vaani Kapoor is the latest entry to Akshay Kumar’s: Bell Bottom. She will be romancing Akshay in the movie.
There are reports that Vaani Kapoor has been signed on to play Akshay Kumar’s wife in his upcoming movie ‘Bell Bottom’.
Akshay Kumar made an announcement regarding various projects at once, the latest being ‘Bell Bottom’. The female lead for this movie has reportedly been finalized and ‘WAR’ actress Vaani Kapoor might have been roped in to play his lover aka his spouse in the movie this time.
A source operating close to the project told Mumbai Mirror,
“The script demanded a fresh pairing, Vaani was signed on a week ago and is excited for the shoot with Akshay. It’s not the usual female lead, a few romantic scenes and some songs. She plays Akshay’s wife and is integral to the narrative.”
Talking more about ‘Bell Bottom’. It is a story based in the 80s and thus looks do play a pivotal role in the film. Vaani would also be undergoing a look test. The test would be conducted once the movie enters the shooting stage. Work on ‘Bell Bottom’ is expected to take off in September after Akshay wraps up Sajid Nadiadwala’s ‘Bachchan Pandey’.
‘Bell Bottom’ producer Jackky Bhagnani recently paid a visit to Jaisalmer with Akshay, giving him more instructions about his character. Bell Bottom would be shot at multiple locations, including Mumbai.
The source further shared,
“Recce will start once the travel restrictions following the coronavirus outbreak are relaxed. The team is presently working towards recreating the 80’s decade with set designers and a visual effects team.”
Talking about Vaani. He was last seen as Hrithik Roshan‘s lover in the 2019 blockbuster hit (and highest-grossing film) ‘WAR’. The movie also featured Tiger Shroff in the pivotal role.
Bell Bottom would be Vaani and Hrithik’s second project together after WAR.
