Akshay Kumar responds to Pakistani man who says ‘Bell Bottom’ has ‘things against Pak’ – Times of India

Akshay Kumar, who was at Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea International Film Festival, reacted to a Pakistani man’s comment who said that ‘Bell Bottom’ has things against Pakistan.

The man told Akshay, “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.”

Responding calmly to the same, Akshay said, “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.”

In ‘Bell Bottom’, Akshay essayed the role of an Indian secret agent. It was said to be inspired by real life hijackings by Khalistani terrorists during the 1980s including the hijacking of several Indian Airlines flights. Apart from Akshay, the film also featured Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta and Huma Qureshi in lead roles.

While the film was well-received in India, it was widely criticised overseas and was banned in Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Akshay will next be seen in ‘Selfiee’ co-starring Emraan Hashmi and others. He is also a part of Aanand L Rai’s ‘Gorkha’.
