Akshay Kumar’s ‘Bachchan Pandey’ was announced back in July 2019 and was slated to release Christmas 2020. It was going to clash at the ticket windows with Aamir Khan’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ and Ranbir Kapoor-Ajay Devgn’s Luv Ranjan film. However, this morning Aamir Khan spoke to the makers of ‘Bachchan Pandey’ and got the release date pushed. Akshay took to social media to announce the new release date and give out another look of his from the movie. Sadly, the new release date clashes with another Akshay Kumar film, ‘Bell Bottom’.


In the new poster, Akshay can be seen in a close up look, sporting a beard and a lungi with multiple gold chains and a red headband on the forehead. Akshay Kumar released the new look from the movie with the new release date. The film will not hit theatres on January 22, 2021, the same day on which Akshay had promised to release ‘Bell Bottom’.

The actor made the announcement with a reply to Aamir Khan’s tweet. Akki’s tweet read, “Anytime @aamir_khan, we’re all friends here ? Presenting – new look, new release date. Coming on 22nd January, 2021. In and as #BachchanPandey! #SajidNadiadwala @farhad_samji @kritisanon (sic).

Now, have a look at Akshay’s post sharing the release date of ‘Bell Bottom’. He had written, “Get ready to go back to the 80’s and hop onto a roller-coaster spy ride, #BELLBOTTOM! Releasing on 22nd January, 2021. #RanjitTiwari #VashuBhagnani @jackkybhagnani @deepshikhadeshmukh @onlyemmay @madhubhojwani @nikkhiladvani @emmayentertainment @pooja_ent (sic).


‘Bachchan Pandey’ will be directed by Farhad Samji. It will mark another collaboration between Akshay Kumar and Farhad Samji after last year’s super successful ‘Housefull 4’ which went on to make over 200 crores at the box-office.

Only time will tell now whether Akshay Kumar decides to clash with his own film, or will ‘Bell Bottom’ get pushed to another release date later in 2021. Stay hooked on to Bollywood Bubble to get more information on this mega clash.
