During the trailer launch press conference, Lara Dutta was asked about the character she portrays in the film. The actress initially asked members of the media to guess the character. "If anyone is able to guess, then I will take all their family members free to the theatres," she promised. After much prodding, Dutta said, "So you did see me in the trailer. I'm playing Mrs Indira Gandhi. That's me."

The former Miss Universe revealed that she received a call from the makers about playing the former PM in the movie. "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," she said.

It was a challenge to get the body language of the character right, added Dutta.

Meanwhile, 'Bell Bottom' also stars Vaani Kapoor and Huma Qureshi in key roles. Kapoor, who portrays the wife of Kumar''s character, said she was thrilled to get to shoot a movie during the pandemic. 

Speaking about the film, the Ranjit M Tewari directorial is presented by Pooja Entertainment in association with Emmay Entertainment. It is produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani, and Nikkhil Advani.
