Akshay Kumar's latest film BellBottom had become the first film to get a worldwide theatrical release after the devastating second wave of COVID-19 pandemic in India earlier this year. The film directed by Ranjit Tiwari was released in theatres on August 19. The release of the film was limited in India as some of the states in the country have yet not allowed the reopening of theatres.
Now, the makers of Bellbottom have announced the digital release date of the film. Akshay Kumar on Sunday took to his social media to announce that the film will be released on September 16 on Amazon Prime Video, exactly a month after its theatrical release.

The action-packed racy thriller is bound to give nail-biting thrills. Inspired from the real-life hijacking events in the 80’s the story essays the unparalleled courage of the unsung hero known by his code name – BellBottom.
