Akshay Kumar will be seen in Raghava Lawrence’s Laxmmi Bomb which is a remake of the filmmaker’s Tamil film Muni 2: Kanchana. The story of the horror-comedy revolves around a man who gets possessed by the spirit of transgender.

A few months ago, Akshay had shared a still of the film in which he was seen wearing a saree. Recently, while talking to a tabloid, the actor stated that he is comfortable in a saree. Akki said, “I am comfortable in a saree and had no problem shooting in it. I love doing tricky stuff. It is one of the most difficult characters I have played. I had to internalise the character and get the body language right.”

Well, Laxmmi Bomb was in the news as Lawrence had stepped down as the director of the film in the middle of the shoot as he had creative differences with the producers. While talking about it, Akshay said. “I have no idea what happened. Shabina (Khan, producer) and Raghava spoke and sorted out. Raghava is one of the finest directors when it comes to making a horror film. I respect him as a filmmaker. We started shooting (after the episode), and since then, nobody has even mentioned the incident. It’s all good among us.”

Laxmmi Bomb also stars Kiara Advani in the lead role. The film is slated to hit the screens on Eid 2020. It will be clashing with Salman Khan starrer Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. Earlier, Akshay’s Sooryavanshi was slated to release on Eid 2020, but it was preponed to 27th March 2020.
