‘Laxmmi Bomb’ Renamed as ‘Laxmii’
Laxmmi Bomb’s trailer was out on 9th of October 2020, and it has crossed 22 million views already. Akshay Kumar starrer movie Laxmmi Bomb (renamed as Laxmii) is a much awaited movie of the year. There has been a lot of delay in Bollywood movie schedules already due to the lockdown and virus. Now that few cinemas are open and the makers have tied up with OTT Platforms too, they are all set to release the movie.
So, as controversies and Bollywood has an old relation here is another one adding to the list. After the launch of movie’s trailer many controversies arose which led to force the makers to change the name of the movie.

‘Laxmmi Bomb’ or ‘Laxmii’ plot and cast:
This Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani starring movie is the remake of a south Indian movie “Muni 2: Kanchana” which was released in 2011. The director of the Tamil movie Raghava Lawrence is directing this remake too. As it is clear from the trailer it is going to be a horror comedy film, and Akshay Kumar’s fans are excited to see him doing such versatile role of a transgender.
Was it necessary to rename the title from ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ to ‘Laxmii’?
As we all know that people on social media are outraged by the Sushant Singh Rajput’s case and are boycotting all the Bollywood movies so far. In this situation Akshay Kumar has also become a target of some netizens due to multiple reasons. Be it being silent on Sushant’s case or be it raising voice against Republic TV he has some haters now in the lobby. Keeping in mind the failure of Sadak 2 and other movies, Akshay Kumar along with the producers Shabinaa Khan and Tusshar Kapoor have decided to rename their movie. Akshay Kumar doesn’t want to face the fury of the public and let his movie suffer another boycott spree like other movies. So in that case it becomes necessary to respect public sentiments and rename ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ to ‘Laxmii’.
