Indian action hero Akshay Kumar’s new film ‘Bell Bottom‘ has been banned by three Arab countries.

According to Indian media reports, Akshay Kumar’s film, which was released worldwide on August 19, has been barred from showing due to distortion of facts.

The three countries that have banned the film include Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Qatar.

Authorized that allows films to be shown in these countries have not issued an exhibition certificate to Bell Bottom, which prevents the film from being shown in cinemas.

The film is based on the hijacking of an Indian airliner in the 1980s and the filmmakers are accused of distorting the facts in the film.

Indian media quoted a source saying, “The second half of Bell Bottom shows the hijackers taking the aircraft to Dubai from Lahore. As per the actual incident that took place in 1984, United Arab Emirates Defence Minister, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, had personally handled the situation and it was the UAE authorities who had nabbed the hijackers,”

The film, on the other hand, shows Akshay Kumar leading the entire operation, keeping the matter completely secret from the UAE Defense Minister.

Sources said that this may be the reason for banning the screening of the film, however, the reaction of the three countries has not come to light in this regard.
