Absolutely grateful for this and I wanna thank the entire team of #Bellbottom and specially @akshaykumar sir without whom achieving this milestone of completing the shoot in the pandemic would have been impossible!
grateful #thankful 🙏
On receiving the award heh expressed, “I used to wonder when I will get such an honour. I am very excited, I’d like to thank the whole team of Bell Bottom, my father because he was there in London handling everything…The director Ranjit, all the cast and crew, and above all Akshay sir. If it wasn’t for him, I’d not have got the strength to shoot this. Especially being a small part of the industry, we thought someone needs to take that bold step. I must say that for the first time I felt that the whole fraternity came together and supported us and they were very happy. I used to always feel that my father is my role model but now I have two- my father and Akshay sir”, says Jackky Bhagnani.
