Earlier this year, Akshay in a virtual press conference said, “In my career of 30 years, this is my most mentally intense role. It has been that tough. I’ve never experienced something like this before. The credit goes to my director, Lawrence sir. He introduced me to a version of myself which I didn’t know existed. This is unlike any character I’ve ever played. I had to be careful to portray this character with utmost honesty, without offending any community.”
Laxmmi Bomb is a remake of the Tamil horror-comedy, Muni 2: Kanchana, which was also directed by Raghava Lawrence. The film also marks the debut of Akshay on the digital platform.
Apart from Laxmmii Bomb, Akshay also has Rohit Shetty’s cop drama Sooryavanshi opposite Katrina Kaif, Raksha Bandhan, Bell Bottom and Prithviraj.
