As revealed earlier in the first look posters of ‘Bell Bottom’, Akshay can be seen in an intense spy avatar. Interestingly there is a film with the same title which released earlier in the Kannada language directed by Ravi Varma, who also owns the remake rights of the film.

So when Akshay had unveiled the first poster of ‘Bell Bottom’, a fan had asked him if this is a remake of the Kannada film, to which the actor had replied saying it is an original film.

Now as per a report in ETimes, Varma is not happy with the makers of Akshay’s ‘Bell Bottom’ unofficially rehashing his film. He is contemplating taking legal action against the makers. However, he is yet to send the legal notice to the makers of the Hindi version.

While talking about the reason why he didn’t file the legal complaint against the makers yet, Varma told the daily, “One of our guys has registered the Hindi title but, there is a rumour that he has sold the title, and there is a 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.”

The title of the film and the way AK has been styled in the first look poster looks very similar to director Ravi Varma. He says, “I have informed the Hindi team about this and they told me Akshay Kumar will discuss the issue with me.”
