Recently, the filmmakers of the Laxmmi Bomb had unveiled the first look of Akshay Kumar from the film. While fans were super excited to see Akshay in a never before seen avatar, the director of the film, Raghava Lawrence, stepped down from his position citing multiple reasons- creative differences with the producers.
Muni series actor-director took to social media to announce his exit as he wrote, “In this world, more than money and fame, self-respect is the most important attribute to a person’s character. So I have decided to step out of the project, Laxmmi Bomb, the Hindi remake of Kanchana. I don’t want to mention the reason because there are multiple reasons, but one of them is that the first look poster of the film was released today without my knowledge and even without discussing anything with me.”
Now, following Raghava Lawrence’s exit from the movie, the makers of the film have decided to rope in a new director, the Mumbai Mirror tabloid reported on Monday. Co-produced by Kumar’s A Cape of Good Films, Laxmmi Bomb also stars Kiara Advani and was aiming for a June 2020 release.
“The second schedule is only in September and things will fall in place by then. Akshay has allotted bulk dates for a 40-day marathon shooting spell in Mumbai. With Raghava, there was a communication gap which was difficult to breach. So we have to take a decision on the new director soon,” as reported by Mirror. Laxmmi Bomb is the Hindi remake of the Tamil horror-comedy, Muni 2: Kanchana, and in the film, the character is possessed by a transgender ghost.
