Some Of The Most Awaited Films In The Spy Genre

The Bollywood spy thriller a new-age twist on a big screen

The Bollywood spy flick gets more ambitious this year, with a couple of top superstars signing up for roles in the genre. Akshay Kumar, Kangana Ranaut, and Sidharth Malhotra will give the Bollywood spy thriller a new-age twist on a big screen, even as Manoj Bajpayee continues with his escapades in the OTT space with The Family Man 2 being the most awaited film.

While the Hollywood hangover is still evident on Hindi espionage thrillers when it comes to forming and execution, the new-age Bollywood spy banks heavily on pop patriotism for his mojo when it comes to content.

Bell Bottom

This Akshay Kumar-starrer is inspired by true events. Set in the 1980s, Bell Bottom was one of the earliest Bollywood films to go on floors after the Covid-induced lockdown. Leaked photos from the sets went viral on social media during its shoot in Glasgow, Scotland, in September and fans were gushing about Akshay’s dapper retro look. The Ranjit M. Tewari directorial also stars Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta Bhupathi, and Huma Qureshi. It is scheduled to release on April 2.
