Akshay Kumar‘s ‘Bell Bottom’ has completed its shoot and it’s the first film in the world to start and finish shooting during the pandemic.
“It’s teamwork and I am grateful to each and every member of the cast and crew from the spot dadas to the light dadas to the technicians to the make-up dadas to my lovely heroines Vaani, Lara, Huma, my director Ranjit and to Vashuji and the production team who believed in our audacious plan. The new normal has made us realise a different way of working that none of us could have imagined. I hope this encourages film industries globally to do what they do best and start entertaining audiences again. I hope our shoot during the pandemic reassures others that keeping all safety in mind it’s time to get things moving again,” says Akshay Kumar.
“We are immensely grateful to the entire unit for trusting us to keep them safe. We feel blessed that we had the right energy on the sets at all times which is honestly the reason why everything came together so beautifully,” adds Jackky Bhagnani
Vaani Kapoor says, “This was easily among the smoothest productions that I have been a part of. I was concerned about how it was going to play out, given the fear and health concerns but I must thank and congratulate Pooja Entertainment for the fantastic planning and the attention to detail. I hope this gives encouragement and confidence to other people back home to shoot.”
For the captain of the ship, director Ranjit M Tewari, ‘Bell Bottom’ has been an experience he would like to savour a little longer. He said, “I’ve been blessed with a great cast and crew! Akshay sir, Vashuji, Vaani, Lara, Jackky and every technician has worked tirelessly to support the film. It was great teamwork.”
