Kumar could also be seen motivating the entire crew to participate and make the most of the training sessions.

He further mentioned that his wife, Khanna, was also present on the sets, and he had to impress her during the shoot.

“My wife happened to visit the set when we shot this sequence in the jungle,” he said in the video.

“So, I had to pull up all my tricks out of the bag because even after 20 years (of marriage), I still can’t help but want to impress her.”

“I had to do the most chin-ups because there were other boys also. But I had to do more than that so that she can always be impressed with me.”

“Luckily, my wife notices everything, so it’s a never-ending game.”

Khanna reposted the video on her Instagram handle and expressed her thoughts.

“Haha! On the contrary, I am terrified when he leaps off buildings and planes. The fact that he is still in one piece impresses me more than all his stunts. Stay safe Mr K #Bellbottom (sic),” she wrote.

Helmed by Ranjit Tewari, “Bellbottom” is produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Monisha AdvaniMadhu Bhojwani, and Nikkhil Advani.

The film will also star Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi, and Lara Dutta Bhupathi.

In “Bellbottom,” Kumar will be seen essaying the role of a Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent. The film is based on the plane hijacks that took India by storm in the early 1980s.
