Here are some reactions by Twitter users:

A Twitter user Akshay Yadav replied, “Your looks is outstanding mam, thori der k liye mujhe khud believe hi nhi huwa ki ye aap ho.” (Which translates in English as, “Your looks is outstanding mam, for sometime I was not able to believe that is is you.”)

Another Twitter user Mufadal Zoher wrote, “Wow! Such wizardry! Tipping my hat to the whole makeup team. It’s high time Indian awards starts recognizing the makeup artists now, they deserve all the recognition too. At the end, she’ll remove the make up only to reveal that is was Ethan Hunt all along, lol.”

While talking to Pinkvilla for the promotion of the film, Lara Dutta said that her father was a personal pilot to Indira Gandhi and so she always felt an ‘indirect connection’ with her even before playing her role in Bell Bottom. She said, “My father, Wing Commander LK Dutta, was Indira Gandhi’s personal pilot. He had flown her many times and knew her personally. I grew up as a kid hearing stories about her. So, in a way, I felt an indirect personal connection with her.”

Talking about the film, ‘Bellbottom’ is a periodic film set in 1984, the year that saw Operation Bluestar and Indira Gandhi’s assassination. The movie is directed by Ranjit M Tewari. Actors Akshay Kumar and Vaani Kapoor are also a part of the movie.
