Amid all the restrictions imposed by Corona, ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ Akshay Kumar took a chance and got the movie ‘Bell Bottom’ to open in theaters. But seeing the poor condition of the film at the box office, ‘Khiladi Kumar’ realized that here it is difficult to match the cost of the film. In the end, they now have to turn to OTT. According to the information received, the agreement has been closed between the creators of Bell Bottom and Amazon Prime Video. A talk has been made between the two for 75 million rupees. The film will premiere on OTT after four weeks. Generally, no film opens on OTT before eight weeks after its theatrical release.
According to Dainik Bhaskar’s report, the makers sold the ‘Bell Bottom’ film to the OTT platform Amazon Prime Video for around 75 million rupees. Generally, any film is released on digital platform only after 8 weeks after the theatrical release, but this will not happen in the case of the film ‘Bell Bottom’. The film was released in theaters on August 19, only after 4 weeks will the audience be able to see it on the OTT platform. This is the reason why Amazon Prime Video has paid such a large amount to Vashu Bhagnani, the creators of the movie ‘Bell Bottom’. If all goes well, the film will premiere on September 20 on the OTT Amazon Prime Video platform.
Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar’s movie ‘Bell Bottom’ will premiere on Amazon Prime Video.
slow pace at the box office
The film ‘Bellbottom’ has earned around 2.75 million rupees at the box office on the first day of release. After this, there was a 15 percent decrease in collection on the second day. The film earned 2.40 million rupees on the second day. The total profit of the film has been 5.25 million rupees in two days. According to the agreement between the distributors and the filmmakers of this film, it is said that 60 percent of the total net profit will go to the distributor in the first week. In the second week, this participation will be 55 percent and in the third-fourth week, this distribution will be half. If it is viewed this way, if the movie depends only on the box office, then it will be difficult to recoup its cost.
Behind ‘Roohi’ and ‘Mumbai Saga’
After the first wave of Corona, when the pace of the epidemic slowed, restrictions were relaxed, under which even at that time theaters were open for a few days with conditions. At that time, two great movies like Janhvi Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao starring ‘Roohi’ and John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi starring ‘Mumbai Saga’ were released in theaters. Of these, the collection of the film ‘Roohi’ on the first day was Rs 3.06 crore and the collection of the film ‘Mumbai Saga’ was Rs 2.82 crore. In this way, even after creating so much buzz and getting positive reviews, the box office collection for Akshay Kumar’s movie ‘Bellbottom’ cannot be said to be that good.

Akshay knew there was a risk!
Akshay Kumar was already worried that he was taking a chance on his decision to release the movie ‘Bell Bottom’ in theaters. But he said that if you don’t take risks in life, you can’t achieve success. Before the film was released, he had said: ‘Look, I know that releasing a movie in theaters right now is the biggest risk, a challenge, but if you haven’t taken a risk in life, what have you done? That is why we decided that we will release our film in theaters at risk. I have all the producers of the film with me in this decision. It’s a bet and someone had to bet it. ‘
