The Akshay Kumar starrer Bell Bottom managed to perform decently first week at the box office despite restrictions and less number of shows (there was no release in Maharasthra), bringing Rs 19.40 crore. The action-thriller faced the Emraan Hashmi and Amitabh Bachchan starrer Chehre in its second week which was released in 800 screens and the Punjabi film, Chal Mera Putta 2, dropping in with Rs 7.35 crore.
Due to the release of two major Hollywood releases – the Vin Diesel starrer F9 and Marvel Studio’s Shang Chi, Bell Bottom dropped by more than 50% on its 3rd week at the box office with Rs 2.84 crore (extended first week as Bell Bottom released on Thursday) and considering the 4th Thursday collection to be around Rs 25 lakhs. The action-drama faced another big release – Kangana Ranaut starrer Thalaivii which screened at selected theaters due to ongoing conflict between PVR exhibitors and makers of the film. Bell Bottom collected Rs 25 lakhs on 3rd Friday, went slightly up on third Saturday with Rs 36 lakhs and another inch up on third Sunday with Rs 48 lakhs (as per early trade estimates), bringing the 25 days collections to around Rs 30.80 crore. The budget of Bell Bottom is around Rs 60 crore (Production Cost – Rs 50 , Promotion – Rs 10 crore)
Bell Bottom is produced by Jackky Bhagnani and Vashu Bhagnani under the banner of Pooja films and Nikhil Advani under the banner of Emmay Entertainment.
