Akshay Kumar’s latest film BellBottom had become the first film to get a worldwide theatrical release after the devastating second wave of COVID-19 pandemic in India earlier this year.

The film directed by Ranjit Tiwari was released in theatres on August 19. The release of the film was limited in India as some of the states in the country have yet not allowed the reopening of theatres.

Now, the makers of Bellbottom have announced the digital release date of the film. Akshay Kumar on Sunday took to his social media to announce that the film will be released on September 16 on Amazon Prime Video, exactly a month after its theatrical release.

The action-packed racy thriller is bound to give nail-biting thrills. Inspired from the real-life hijacking events in the 80’s the story essays the unparalleled courage of the unsung hero known by his code name – BellBottom.

Akshay Kumar will be seen donning the hat of this undercover agent on a covert mission to free 210 hostages held by hijackers.

Packed with a riveting script and great performances, it is one of the stellar additions to our content library.”

“After getting the theatres going, it is time to take this story to more people, and what better way to do that than releasing BellBottom on Amazon Prime Video; with a reach of 240+ countries and territories, I am hoping this tale of an unsung hero reaches audiences far and wide,” exclaimed lead actor Akshay Kumar.

Producer Jackky Bhagnani added, “With BellBottom, Ranjit M Tewari and the entire cast and crew have worked hard to elevate the entertainment quotient to make an out-and-out blockbuster. Recently I have seen the audience has developed more interest in watching action thrillers that keep them at the edge of their seat. I am very happy to have collaborated with Amazon Prime Video to release the film digitally which could help us reach in over 240 countries and territories worldwide.”

His was the sole Emmy win for Sweet Tooth, which was nominated for 11 awards.

Speaking to RNZ from Los Angeles, Garbett said Sweet Tooth was “a really great story with universal appeal”.

“It was a pleasure being able to be a part of telling it. New Zealand has a huge wealth of film making talent, having it recognised in this way is just brilliant.”

Sweet Tooth was filmed entirely in Aotearoa and many Auckland locations, including the Winter Gardens in Auckland Domain, are recognisable to series viewers. The third season of the show is expected in 2024.

“Filming is always a series of challenges. We had a really harmonious team, so we worked our way through it and we’re all still friends at the end,” Garbett said.

His career to date includes working on a wide variety of shorts, series and films, including the David Bain drama Black Hands, and horror film Evil Dead Rise.

“I finished high school with no idea what I wanted to do,” Garbett said.

“I decided to go to film school just because my mate was. I’ve been in it ever since and I love it! It has taken me far and wide and continues to provide variety and keep my working life interesting.”
