Exclusive! Kannada director considering legal action against Akshay Kumar’s ‘Bell Bottom’ – read deets | Hindi Movie News


Akshay Kumar surprised fans with a vintage poster of his next film ‘Bell Bottom’ wherein he plays a spy. Soon rumours were rife that the film is inspired from Kannada film ‘Bell Bottom’. Director and stunt choreographer Ravi Varma owns the remake rights of ‘Bell Bottom’ and is clearly upset with this announcement and is reportedly considering legal action as well. Speaking about the controversy Ravi Varma exclusively to ETimes, “We haven’t sent any legal notice to anyone yet but there should be no similarities between Kannada and Hindi ‘Bell Bottom. After acquiring the rights of ‘Bell Bottom’, I gave the movie to several production houses in Mumbai. Nikkhil Advani is also one of them. I feel they have taken the concept and the style from Kannada ‘Bell Bottom’ movie.”

The style of Akshay’s poster and title are similar to the Kannada ‘Bell Bottom’ and Ravi had approached the Bollywood team for the same. “The title and Akshay Kumar’s character in the poster that was released is similar to that of Kannada ‘Bell Bottom’. I have informed the Hindi team about this and they told me Akshay Kumar will discuss the issue with me,” added Ravi Varma.

Apparently a member from Ravi Varma’s team had registered the Hindi title for ‘Bell Bottom’ but there seems to be some confusion regarding the same, “One of our guys has registered the Hindi title but, there is a rumour that he has sold the title, and there are discussion going on about this. Once we have clarified it with the Hindi team, I will call a press conference and give out the correct information. I am only concerned about our Kannada film, eventually it is also an Indian film,” concluded Ravi Varma.
