In an interview, Jackky Bhagnani revealed that Vaani’s role in Bellbottom is meaty. He said, “Vaani is an intelligent and an effective actor and I have loved all her performances. The female lead in Bell bottom has to be in sync with Akshay sir’s screen persona. The role is meaty and I am confident that Vaani will ace this one.”
Vaani said she is excited to share the screen space with Akshay. “I am thrilled to partner with Pooja Entertainment who have already made me feel at home at this initial stage of our film. Hoping that this excitement will translate beautifully on screen,” the 31-year-old actor said.
Akshay Kumar had shared his first look from the film in November last year. Suited up, Akshay is posing in style in front of a luxury car and a plane flying over him. He wore dark shades and sported a moustache.
