A few days ago, the makers of Akshay Kumar starrer Laxmmi Bomb unveiled the poster of the film. Just a day after the poster release, Raghava Lawrence stepped down as the director of the film. He took to Twitter to inform his fans about it. In his tweet, he had written that he is stepping down as the director because for him more than money and fame it is his self-respect that is important. He also stated that there were many reasons for his decision and one of the reasons was that the first look poster was released without him being informed.
However, now Lawrence has tweeted that the producers of the film are coming to meet him and he might reconsider directing the film again. He tweeted, “Post my tweet both Akshay Kumar Sir fans and my fans have been requesting me to do this film. I’m over-whelmed with their genuine love. But trust me, I’m equally upset for the past one week as you are. I was very thrilled to do this film, as I almost waited very long to direct this film, spent a quality time on pre-production works and have also blocked my dates for this film. Tomorrow, the producers are coming to Chennai to meet me. It’s completely in their hands now, if I’m given proper self-respect for my job, then I’ll think about it. Let’s see after the meeting. Wanted to share this message to all the fans who were genuinely concerned.”

Well, let’s hope that the issues between the producers and Raghava get solved and the movie comes on the track once again.
Laxmmi Bomb is a remake of Tamil film Kanchana which was also directed by Raghava Lawrence. The movie is slated to release in June next year and also stars Kiara Advani.
