Entertainment l Trade waits with bated breath for Bell Bottom

Bell Bottom proves yet again why Akshay Kumar is the Numero Uno of Bollywood! None of the Hindi films released during the pandemic did business, forget getting an advance; but this is not the case with Bell Bottom. If trade-pundits are to be believed, Raj Mandir cinema in Jaipur sold-out within 30 minutes of opening the ticket windows! The general buzz is that advance booking at several centres is strong. If this is the case, it is indeed a very heartening news for cinemas and multiplexes - the worst hit during the pandemic.

The icing-on-the-cake is that the first song Marjawaan is already a roaring hit with 50 million plus views since it released.
