Laxmmi Bomb is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language comedy horror film written and directed by Raghava Lawrence in his Hindi directorial debut. It is a remake of the 2011 Tamil film Muni 2: Kanchana and stars Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani. Akshay Kumar has all the intentions to make the film a big hit and he is not leaving any stone unturned. Akshay has also reached out to the Universe to set things right by planning everything regarding the release on and multiples of 9. Yes, he insisted on very precisely launching the teaser on October 9 and the final release on November 9. He also planned the release of his song ‘Burj Khalifa’ on October 18, which is the sum of two 9’s.
The horror-comedy is slated for a Diwali release, which is November 9, on Disney+ Hotstar. However, a poor quality version of the film leaked online on Wednesday. Akshay Kumar had proposed the idea of promoting the song ‘Burj Khalifa’ on the actual Burj Khalifa. The producers dug the idea at first but after calculating the expenses, they decided to pass. A source said, “The Fox Star Studios team liked the idea but found it commercially unviable. They realized that flying Akshay Kumar, Kiara Advani and others in a private jet to Dubai, accommodating them in a luxurious hotel, booking the Burj Khalifa for the promotions, taking care of safety and sanitization etc would cost somewhere around Rs. 65-70 lakhs. The management didn’t feel the need to spend so much at a time when the financial condition of the industry is not up to the mark. Hence, they politely declined the idea. Akshay Kumar understood their point of view and agreed.”
