The release dates for two of Akshay Kumar’s films were announced on Friday – BellBottom and Atrangi Re. BellBottom is slated to hit theaters on May 28 while Atrangi Re will release on August 6, 2021. The films are likely to accelerate business for theaters that are yet to get back on track in India, after the seven-months-long shutdown that ended in October last year. A teaser for BellBottom, that features Huma Qureshi, Lara Dutta, Vaani Kapoor and Adil Hussain in the lead roles, was also unveiled on Friday.
Many major films went for digital-only releases last year, fearing long-term impact of the pandemic, as cinemas remained shutdown for months. Mr Kumar’s horror comedy, Laxmii, also landed online in 2020, alongside several other big ticket films including Vidya Balan’s Shakuntala Devi, Amitabh Bachchan’s Gulabo Sitabo and Janvhi Kapoor-starrer Gunjan Saxena The Kargil Girl.
However, many filmmakers decided to wait it out and postponed their movies. Earlier this year, the Indian government allowed cinema halls to function in full capacity. Post the order, many major films have been confirmed for theatrical release, including Salman Khan’s Radhe Your Most Wanted Bhai which is slated for release on Eid 2021.
Mr Kumar, meanwhile, is set to treat fans with a few theatrical releases this year, apart from BellBottom. Here’s a look at all his movies lined up for release in 2021:
Directed by Ranjit M Tewari (of Lucknow Central fame), the film was among the first ones to go on floors post the pandemic-induced lockdown in India last year. The film is said to be inspired by true events and is set in the 1980s. It will hit theaters on May 28.
Earlier this week, the release date of his Rohit Shetty’s film, Sooryavanshi was confirmed with PVR Pictures announcing their slate of films this year. The film, that also features Katrina Kaif, is set to hit theaters on April 2.
Featuring Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan alongside Mr Kumar, the film was initially slated to hit theaters on February 14, 2021. However, the post-production of the movie took a hit last year due to the pandemic and the Anand L Rai-directorial has been delayed. It is now scheduled to release in theaters on August 6, 2021.
Directed by Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi (of TV show Chanakya and Sunny Deol-starrer film Mohalla Assi fame), the period drama will mark the Bollywood debut of former Miss World Manushi Chhillar. The movie also features Sanjay Dutt and Sonu Sood in important roles. It is slated to be out on November 5, one day after Diwali. Prithviraj is likely to clash with Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur’s Jersey – a remake of director Gowtam Tinnanuri’s Telugu film by the same name.
Directed by Anand L Rai, the film was initially set to hit theaters on November 5. However, it is likely to have been delayed and a final release date is awaited.
Mr Kumar is currently shooting for Bachchan Pandey which is slated for a January 2022 release.
