Sunny is set promote vegan fashion, which is free from leather or other animal derived materials.

“It has been wonderful associating with PETA India, working on so many campaigns – from encouraging the adoption and sterilisation of cats and dogs to speaking about the importance of going vegetarian. I look forward to unveiling the next campaign soon, which for now, I’ll say will help animals save their skins,” she said.

Los Angeles– Akshay Kumar’s “Bell Bottom”, which was scheduled to release on January 22, 2021, will now release on April 2 next year.

The change in the release date of the film comes in the wake of Akshay’s postponing another upcoming film, “Bachchan Pandey”, from December this year to January 21 next year.

“Bachchan Pandey” clearly had a domino effect, because moving the film to January 21 now meant it would clashed with Akshay’s own film, “Bell Bottom”! In turn, that prompted Akshay to shift “Bell Bottom” to April.

“I know there are enough memes out there about me clashing with myself one day but 22nd January 2021 is not that day. #BellBottom will now release on 2nd April, 2021,” Akshay wrote on Instagram.

“Bell Bottom” is a spy thriller directed by Ranjit M Tewari.

Earlier on Monday, Akshay announced that he, along with producer Sajid Nadiadwala, had decided to postpone “Bachchan Pandey” on Aamir Khan’s request. Aamir has also lined up his next film “Laal Singh Chaddha” for the same week and was keen to get a solo release on Christmas.

Disha Patani on ‘Radhe’: Never imagined I’d work with Salman Khan again

“Considering the fact that Salman sir is such a huge star in Bollywood for years, never have I ever imagined that I will get another chance to work with him again, after ‘Bharat’. When the film worked I was just happy with the fact that I had worked with Salman Khan. However, when the opportunity for ‘Radhe’ came, I was on cloud nine. I loved the story and working again with sir! I think along with my hard work, everything is happening also because of good fortune,” Disha told IANS.

Whether it is in “Kung Fu Yoga”, “Baaghi 2”, or “Bharat”, the actress has done a lot of stunts. Being an adventure sports fan, Disha says she loves all the action. In the upcoming film “Malang”, co-starring Anil Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Kunal Khemu, Disha plays a young independent girl.

“If I talk about my habit of watching films, I watched a lot of action and horror film while growing up. I love watching bad girls who kick ass and punch the boys! So, action is definitely something I love doing. In ‘Malang’, too, I got a chance to do action. I think my body is quite agile and that is an advantage whenever I try stunts or adventure sports!” shared the actress.

Directed by Mohit Suri, ‘Malang’ is scheduled to release on February 7. (IANS)
