The romantic track commences with Akshay singing at a family event while strumming a guitar. Vaani comes into the frame and smiles looking at him as others around them swing to the music. The song’s video then transitions to a picturesque train journey with Akshay hanging from the door, as Vaani gives him a hug, still smiling at his antics. The lovebirds then dance in foreign locations, chill by some beaches with a husky joining them for drinks.

Towards the end of the almost three-minute-long video, they ultimately propose each other, and the frame once again transitions back to the family event they were initially at. ‘Marjaawaan’ has been crooned, composed and penned by Gurnazar Singh. Asees Kaur has given the female vocals.

Directed by Ranjit M. Tewari, ‘Bell Bottom’ is being touted as a spy thriller. Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Nikkhil Advani have produced the project, which also features actors, Huma Qureshi and Lara Dutta Bhupathi. Last year, the film made headlines for being the first Hindi film to be shot and completed during the pandemic with exemplary on-set COVID management.

‘Bell Bottom’ will star Akshay in the role of a RAW agent. It is based on the plane hijacks that took India by storm in the early 1980s. Lara will essay the role of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, who was in power at that time. Vaani will play Akshay’s wife in the film. Apart from ‘Bell Bottom’, Akshay has a flurry of projects in his kitty including ‘Atrangi Re’, ‘Raksha Bandhan’, ‘Bachchan Pandey’, ‘Sooryavanshi’, ‘Prithviraj’ and ‘Mission Lion’.
