Watch Bell Bottom online: Starring Akshay Kumar and Lara Dutta, the spy thriller Bell Bottom hit the theatres in 3D on Thursday (August 19). Inspired by true events, the film is about a real-life hijacking of an Indian Airlines flight in 1984 when a RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) agent was sent on a covert mission to free 210 hostages and nab the highjackers. Directed by Ranjit M Tewari, the movie also features Huma Qureshi, Vaani Kapoor and Adil Hussain in significant roles.
The producers of the film took the tough call of releasing the film in theatres after the second wave of the novel coronavirus pandemic, however, many fans are still confused as to where to watch Bell Bottom online. The reason could be that Bell Bottom is the first big budget Bollywood film to have a theatrical release after a gap of many months, during which the audience got accustomed to OTT premiers for Hindi films. Well, this is what we know about the film's streaming details:

About Bell Bottom
Bell Bottom has received a positive response from the audiences and the critics alike. The makers took a massive risk with the release despite the shortage of screens. A spy thriller is set in the 80s and based on the plane hijacks that took India by storm back then. Kumar plays the role of a RAW agent who helps get the Indian hostages back to the country. A wide appreciation was received by actor Lara Dutta who essays the role of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, who was in power at that time. Her unrecognisable transformation into the late Gandhi went viral earlier this month. Vaani Kapoor plays Kumar's wife while Huma Qureshi also plays a pivotal role in Bell Bottom. It is the first theatrical release after the lockdown.
