The script was written by Aseem Arrora and Parveez Sheikh, and the picture was produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, and Nikkhil Advani under their respective banners Pooja Entertainment and Emmay Entertainment. It stars Akshay Kumar as the protagonist, with cameos from Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta, and Huma Qureshi. Bell Bottom is based on real-life hijackings in India by Khalistani militants in the 1980s, such as the hijackings of Indian Airlines Flights 423, 405 and 421. 

The principal photography started on August 20, 2020. The video was completed on September 30th in London. The film will be distributed in 3D theatres on August 19, 2021. Critics gave the film mixed reviews, praising Kumar and Duttas performances, art direction, fast-paced narration, screenplay, background music, and cinematography but criticising the low-quality VFX shots in action scenes and the weak climax. Because of the mixed reviews, as well as the second wave of COVID 19 and the subsequent lockdown across different states, it was a significant commercial failure.

The Bell Bottom is a spy thriller set in the 1980s, directed by Ranjit M. Tewari, and released in 2021. The movie stars Akshay Kumar, Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta, and Huma Qureshi in pivotal roles. The story is based on actual events and revolves around the life of a RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) agent named Anshul Malhotra, played by Akshay Kumar. Anshul is a skilled spy who is tasked with the responsibility of rescuing 210 hostages who terrorists on an Indian Airlines flight have hijacked. 

The movie begins with Anshul being suspended from his job due to a failed mission. However, he is later called back into action when the hijacking occurs. Anshul and a team of agents set out on a mission to rescue the hostages and apprehend the terrorists. As Anshul and his team get closer to their mission, they discover more about the hijacking than meets the eye. They uncover a conspiracy involving international arms dealers and a plot to start a war between India and Pakistan. The movie has thrilling action sequences, edge-of-the-seat moments, and a plot that keeps the audience guessing until the end. Akshay Kumar delivers a stellar performance as the suave and skilled spy, while Vaani Kapoor and Huma Qureshi provide strong support as his colleagues.

Lara Dutta also performs as a RAW agent who goes undercover as the hijackers wife to gather intelligence. The movie ends on a high note as Anshul completes his mission, saving the hostages and preventing a potential war.
