It was a few days ago when Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani starrer Laxmmi Bomb went on the floors. The film is a remake of Tamil film Kanchana and was being directed by Raghava Lawrence who had also helmed the original movie. It was yesterday when the makers released the first look poster of the film and announced the release date. And now, Lawrence has decided to step down as the director of the film.

Along with a note, he tweeted, “Dear Friends and Fans..! 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,  #Laxmmibomb Hindi remake of Kanchana @akshaykumar @RowdyGabbar @Advani_Kiara.”

In the note, Lawrence has written that there are many reasons behind his decision and one of the reasons is that the first look poster was released without him being informed. However, Lawrence is ready to give the script of the film to Akshay so they can make it with some other director.

Laxmmi Bomb is slated to hit the screens on 5th June 2020. Now let’s see which director will replace Lawrence in the film.
