Recently, in a chat with a leading daily, the actor opened up about working on real-life contexts and said that he loves making films on true events. 

Talking about Bell Bottom, Akshay told BT, “Bell Bottom is also a story based on true events, and personally, I’m really intrigued by real-life context. So, I pick such content. The intrigue and thrill increase tenfold when you find out that an extraordinary incident actually took place. I love real-life stories.”

The Airlift actor, Akshay also said that he wasn’t aware of the story before he made Bell Bottom. “Before making this film, I also didn’t know about this chapter in history. I think a lot of people don’t know much about it as it is based on a RAW agent and a covert operation. Things like these are usually classified information. Bell Bottom is set in the 70s and 80s when India faced the challenge of multiple hijacks. During one such incident, a RAW agent whose code name is Bell Bottom sees through the plan and begins India’s first covert operation,” he concluded.
