Akshay Kumar: Akshay Kumar played a RAW agent in the film Bell Bottom, which was based on multiple real-life hijacking incidents that occurred in India in the 1980s.
However, according to Akshay Kumar, movies shouldn’t be taken too seriously. A Pakistani man questioned the actor about how his nation was portrayed in his 2021 film Bell Bottom. The actor had previously attended Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea International Film Festival.

What did the Pakistani man say?
In an interview at the festival, a man from Pakistan said to the actor, “I’m from Pakistan, your neighbour country. I have a request. You do fantastic movies like Pad Man and Toilet. There is an issue between India and Pakistan as well. Your recent movie Bell Bottom has certain things against Pakistan.”

Akshay replied, “Sir, it’s just a movie. Don’t get so serious about it. It’s just a movie. There are many things like that. It’s just a movie, sir.”
It was also the first movie to release at cinemas in 2021 after being closed for six months due to COVID, which also starred Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta, and Huma Qureshi in a special appearance. However, the movie didn’t perform good at the box office.
Akshay also expressed his gratitude to the audience for their continued support and acceptance of him in a variety of genres, from comedies to social dramas, during the festival.
He said, “I am grateful to the audience which has accepted in different kind of roles, whether it is an Airlift, Singh is King, Padman or Toilet Ek Prem Katha. I have finished about 140-150 films by now.”
