Interestingly, Akshay starrer Bell Bottom was already slated to release on 22nd January 2021. So, people on social media started speculating if it will be Akshay Kumar vs Akshay Kumar at the box office. However, the actor took to Instagram to announce the new release date of Bell Bottom.

He posted, “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! #RanjitTiwari #VashuBhagnani @jackkybhagnani @deepshikhadeshmukh @onlyemmay @madhubhojwani @nikkhiladvani @emmayentertainment @pooja_ent.”
