New Delhi:

On Monday, Akshay Kumar announced the new release date of his upcoming film, Bachchan Pandey. The film was supposed to release on Christmas this year, but now it will be hitting the silver screens on January 22, 2021. As soon as the actor announced the new date, fans started sharing memes of Akshay facing a box office clash with himself as his next film, Bell Bottom is also releasing on 22 January, 2021.

Putting an end to the confusion, Akki took to Instagram and announced the new release date of Bell Bottom with a hilarious caption. The film will now release on 2 April, 2021. Sharing a new poster of the film, the actor wrote, "I know there are enough memes out there about me clashing with myself one day but 22nd January 2021 is not that day #BellBottom will now release on 2nd April, 2021!".

Akshay Kumar changed the release date of Bachchan Pandey on Aamir Khan's request. Aamir wanted his film Laal Singh Chaddha to get a solo release on Christmas 2020. Thanking Akshay and the film's producer Sajid Nadiadwala for the same, Aamir wrote on Twitter, "Sometimes all it takes is one conversation. Thank you to my friends @akshaykumar & Sajid Nadiadwala for their warm gesture of moving the release date of their film Bachchan Pandey at my request. I wish them the very best for their film. Looking forward to it. Love. A"

To this, Akshay replied, "Anytime @aamir_khan, we're all friends here Presenting - new look, new release date. Coming on 22nd January, 2021. In and as #BachchanPandey! #SajidNadiadwala @farhad_samji @kritisanon".

Coming back to Bell Bottom, it is a spy thriller, reportedly inspired by true events. Earlier, it was speculated that it was a remake of a Kannada film, but Akshay set the record straight and said, ''Bell Bottom is not a remake of any film, it is an original screenplay inspired by true events.''

Directed by Ranjit M Tewari, Bell Bottom is produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jacky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani.
