Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ has landed into trouble as the makers have reportedly received a legal notice from the Shri Rajput Karni Sena demanding a change in the title. As per the notice, the title is being said to be “derogatory” and “offensive” to Goddess Laxmi.
As per a report in Zoom TV, the legal notice was sent by advocate Raghavendra Mehrotra, on behalf of Shri Rajput Karni Sena accusing the makers of “deliberately” using the title ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ with the purpose of lowering the “dignity” and to “disrespect” the goddess. It also added that the title sends out the wrong message to the society towards the “ideology, customs, gods and goddesses of Hindu religion”.
‘Laxmmi Bomb’ is slated to release on Disney+ Hotstar on November 9. It is a remake of the Tamil blockbuster ‘Muni 2: Kanchana’. Raghava Lawrence, who had helmed the Tamil version has also directed ‘Laxmmi Bomb’. The remake also stars Kiara Advani, Tusshar Kapoor, Sharad Kelkar, and Ashwini Kalsekar.
Akshay Kumar is playing the role of a transgender Ghost for the first time. He is also wearing a saree for the first time. Talking about his experience of donning a saree, Akshay told host and comedian Maniesh Paul, “Frankly speaking, donning a sari is very difficult. During the initial days of the shoot, my sari would often unwrap by itself while shooting. I wasn’t able to move properly while being in a sari, forget about dancing and fighting in it. Thanks to my costume designer who would come to my rescue in every break to rearrange the plaits and balance the pallu.”
