Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb, which is set to release on November 9 on Disney+ Hotstar, has been renamed as Laxmii.
Respecting the sentiments of its viewers, producers Shabinaa Khan, Tusshar Kapoor and Akshay Kumar have decided to change the title of the film. The horror-comedy, directed by Raghava Lawrence, is now titled as Laxmii.
The announcement came after the makers were served with a legal notice from Shri Rajput Karni Sena. The notice stated that the film’s title is ‘derogatory’ and ‘offensive’ to Goddess Laxmi and it hurts religious sentiments.
Earlier, Hindu Sena had sent a similar notice to the makers of Laxmmi Bomb. Apart from Karni Sena and Hindu Sena, veteran actor Mukesh Khanna had also slammed the film’s title.
