The success of crime comedy drama Bell Bottom, which had a gripping story with elements of humour, has led to the making of the sequel. According to writer TK Dayanand, part 2 will be a bigger canvas.“This time the story will bring in the flavour of pure English Bond series, something that the audience had loved watching in Sean Connery kind of movies. In Kannada, Detective Diwakar played by Rishab Shetty will bring out a local flavour,” says the writer.
The movie is being produced by Santhosh Kumar of the Golden Horse Cinema banner. Music by Ajaneesh B Lokanath, DOP Arvind Kashyap and actors Rishabh, Haripriya, Achyut Kumar, Yogaraj Bhatt and Pramod Shetty are in the cast.The team, which plans to commence shooting for the sequel early next year will host the muhurath on January 29, 2021. This is the same date that the first part of Bell Bottom was launched in 2018.
The team hopes to go with the same release date – February 15 in 2022 provided things go as per plan. For Rishab, who is currently busy with his acting assignment Harikathe Alla Girikathe, directed by Giri Krishna, this will be his next project.Bell Bottom was set to begin on the same date in 2018, and Jayatheertha’s directorial Bell Bottom sequel will also begin on the same date.
