Recently, a picture of Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, along with 120 cast and crew members of his upcoming film Bell Bottom, went viral on the internet as the team returned to Mumbai on October 2. The Bell Bottom team wrapped the Scotland schedule and became the first film to finish the shoot during the pandemic. But, on the other side, the picture disappointed a section of netizens as the cast and crew of Bell Bottom was neither practicing social distancing nor wore a face mask while posing for the picture.
While criticising the team for not following the safety guidelines, such as social distancing and wearing a face mask, a user wrote, “This makes me think I’m probably hallucinating a pandemic” while another sarcastic comment read, “Nice to see everyone wearing a mask”. Another Instagram user poked fun and wrote, “May be I just woke up with a nightmare of a pandemic”. A section of fans also highlighted the importance of social distancing and wearing a mask.
