As soon as her look from the film was shared online, people went berserk with their reaction to this shocking transformation. The spy film, with Akshay Kumar playing the lead role is releasing in theatres on August 19. Reacting to all these reactions and comment, Lara sid, “The response to our trailer for #BellBottom and the appreciation for the role of Mrs. Indira Gandhi has been overwhelming and my heart is filled with gratitude!! I’m so thankful for the faith that @akshaykumar @ranjitmtewari @jackkybhagnani @deepshikhadeshmukh and @pooja_ent had in me!. And I’d also like to thank and give full credit to Vikram Gaikwad and his team for the incredible prosthetics and make up! Can’t wait for you’ll to watch the film in the theatres!! See you there on the 19th of August!!!” Talking about how she signed up for the film, Lara said, “All it took was a call and they said that Lara this film is being made and we are casting for Indira Gandhi’s role. It was before I heard the script… But yes, of course, there is a great responsibility when you’re portraying somebody who is an iconic figure like her. It was a challenge to get the body language of the character right. As you all know that the film deals with a hijack situation that happened during her tenure. Given the dramatic events that were unfolding, she was somebody who was very centered and not prone to any dramatics. So it was important to portray her in that form.”
Bell Bottom August 19 – excited much yet?
