Akshay Kumar took to Instagram to unveil the first motion picture poster of his upcoming horror-comedy film–Laxmmi Bomb, which is a remake of Tamil hit Muni film series, specifically Muni 2: Kanchana (2011). The movie is supposed to be directed by Raghava Lawrence who is a well known dance master, actor and director down south. In the upcoming film, which will release on June 5, 2020, Akshay plays the character of a man who is possessed by the spirit of a transgender woman. Entering Akshay’s body is how the woman takes revenge from those who caused her death.

Bringing you one bomb of a story,#LaxmmiBomb starring @kiaraaliaadvani & yours truly!Bursting in cinemas on 5th June,2020💥 Fox Star Studios Presents A Cape of Good Films Production in association with Shabinaa Entertainment & Tusshar Entertainment House Written by Farhad Samji Directed by Raghava Lawrence Produced by Aruna Bhatia, Cape of Good films Produced by Shabinaa Khan and Tusshar Produced by Fox Star Studios @foxstarhindi @shabskofficial @tusshark89 #CapeOfGoodFilms
As things are going in a right way, to our shock, Raghava Lawrence, the director and actor of the original version seems to be dejected by the behaviour of the Bollywood people. The director publicly announced that he is walking out of the project through his official twitter account.
Lawrence in his press release wrote “Hi dear friends and fans, there is an old popular saying in Tamil which tells ‘Don’t step into any house where there is no respect’. 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. I was informed about this by a third person. It is very painful for a director to know about his movie’s first look release from others. I feel very disrespected and disappointed.”

Further he added ““As a creator, I’m also not satisfied with the poster design as well. This shouldn’t happen to any director. I can hold back my script because I haven’t signed any agreement regarding this film, but I won’t do it because it is not professional. I’m ready to give my script because I personally respect Akshay Kumar sir a lot. They can replace me with some other director according to their wish. Soon I’m going to meet Akshay Kumar sir to give the script and step out of this project in a good way. All the very best to the entire team. I wish the movie a great success.”
Though Lawrence declared that he is walking out of the project, he assured that he will meet Akshay Kumar in person to give him the script. He also wishes the entire team a very best for the project.
