Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani starrer Laxmmi Bomb came under scanner after the film received massive backlash on social media. The makers dropped the trailer of the horror-comedy film, and it garnered a lot of praise. However, a section of the audience was displeased with the same and made it to the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Meanwhile, the makers of the film have reportedly received a legal notice even before its release. A Zoom TV report stated that The Shri Rajput Karni Sena has issued a notice demanding a change in title.
The report stated that the legal notice was sent by advocate Raghavendra Mehrotra, on behalf of Shri Rajput Karni Sena.
As per the notice, Laxmmi Bomb, was being considered ‘derogatory’ and ‘offensive’ to Goddess Laxmi by the Hindu community. It further claimed that the makers had ‘deliberately’ used the title Laxmmi Bomb with the sole purpose of lowering the ‘dignity’ of and to show ‘disrespect’ towards the goddess. It added that the name sends out a wrong message to the society at large towards the “ideology, customs, gods and goddesses of Hindu religion”.
Written and directed by Raghava Lawrence in his Hindi directorial debut, Laxmmi Bomb is a remake of the Tamil movie Muni 2: Kanchana and stars Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani in lead roles along with Tusshar Kapoor, Sharad Kelkar, and Ashwini Kalsekar in pivotal roles.
Laxmmi Bomb is slated to premiere on November 9 2020 on Disney+ Hotstar. Also, the film has been confirmed for a theatrical release in Australia, New Zealand and UAE on November 9.
