I had tweeted about stepping out of the Hindi film ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ a few days back. post my tweet both Akshay Kumar Sir fans and my fans have been requesting me to this film. I’m overwhelmed with their genuine love. But trust me, I’m equally upset for the past 1 week as you are. I was very thrilled to do this film, as I almost waited very long to direct this film, spent a lot of quality time on pre-production works and have also blocked my dates for this film. Tomorrow, the Producers are coming to Chennai to mett 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.
Raghava Lawrence” (sic)

He said that the poster of the film featuring Akshay Kumar was released without his knowledge and he found it against his spirit of work.
