Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani starter Laxmi Bomb is in the news a lot. Recently, the trailer for the film was released and it received a great response from the people. The film is slated to hit Disney+ Hostar on November 9, 2020. Now, director Raghava Lawrence has answered some interesting questions regarding the film and more.
Why did you choose to change the title for the Hindi remake of your Tamil film ‘Kanchana’?
Our Tamil film was named after the main lead character Kanchana. Kanchana means ‘gold’ which is a form of Lakshmi. Earlier I considered going the same way for the Hindi remake but we collectively decided that the name must appeal to the Hindi audience as well and what better than LLaxmi By god’s grace, it was turning out to be a cracker of a film, so we named it Laxmi Bomb. Like a dhamaka of Laxmi Bomb cannot be missed, the transgender lead character is powerful and radiant. Hence the name fits perfectly.
2. The trailer looks fun with an ensemble cast. Tell us about your thoughts on the story and the different characters in the film?
The story was created to give the audience a mix of horror and comedy experience and also for the first time I tried to involve an important social message about transgenders into the horror- comedy genre. The characters are created in such a way that the audience can enjoy different variation of characters on the screen.
In the days since the video has been posted, netizens have been trolling the actor for taking a stand for the film industry while the entire nation is upset with the ongoing probe into the drug nexus in Bollywood. The Narcotics Control Bureau uncovered names of several A-lister actors and personalities from Bollywood and the television industry including Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, Rakul Preet Singh and others in their investigation of the network created by drug mafia within the film industry.
Some time ago, self-proclaimed critic Kamaal Rashid Khan, infamous for causing trouble had also called for a ban on the movie. He Said Akshay was mocking Hindu Goddess Lakshmi.
