Back in June, Akshay had shared for the first time that the film would go for an OTT release, amid the growing Covid-19 crisis. It is slated to premiere on Disney+ Hotstar. Also, the film has been confirmed for release in Australia, New Zealand and UAE on November 9. Laxmmi Bomb is a remake of Tamil blockbuster “Muni 2: Kanchana”. Raghava Lawrence, who had helmed the original, also directs the Bollywood remake, co-starring Kiara Advani, Tusshar Kapoor, Sharad Kelkar, and Ashwini Kalsekar.
This is the first time that Akshay Kumar will be seen essaying a transgender in a film. Talking about his role, the actor had said, “In 30 years, this is the most mentally intensive role. Never experienced it before. Credit for it goes to Lawrence sir. He introduced me to a version of me which I didn’t know existed. It was different from my other characters. Iska bolna, chalna action reaction maine kabhi portray nahi kiya,” The actor had said at a virtual press conference, adding that “Laxmmi Bomb” has made him “more sensitive about gender equality”
Recently, Akshay Kumar returned from UK after completing the shoot of his upcoming film bell Bottom with Vaani Kapoor. Soon after, the actor addresses the ongoing controversy of drug abuse in Bollywood and shared a video saying that drug problem does exist in the industry but noy everyone is at fault. In the video, Akshay requested people not to generalise and think that every person associated with Bollywood has drug links.
“After Sushant Singh Rajput’s sudden death, several issues have come to the forefront, which pained us as much as they have done to you. These issue have highlighted several flaws of the film industry, which need to be focused on. Today, narcotics and drugs are the the most talked-about topics. I can’t keep my hand on my heart and lie to you saying this problem does not exist. It does exists — just as it possibly exists in every other industry and profession. But that doesn’t mean every single person from the particular profession is involved. That’s not possible.”
On the work front, Akshay Kumar has an interesting line-up of films. Other than Laxmmi Bomb and Bell Bottom, he will be seen in Farhad Samji’s Bachchan Pandey and Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi. He also has a pivotal role in Aanand L. Rai’s Atrangi Re alongside Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush. The actor will be seen in Prithvirag which marks the debut of Manushi Chhillar. Also, Akshay Kumar has films Raksha Bandhan and Durgavati in the pipeline.
