Akshay plays the part of Laxmii in the movie and his furious avatar as a transgender character is seen in the song which has Lord Mahadev’s breathtaking imagery at the scenery.The film is set to premiere on Disney Plus Hotstar on November 9, a few days ahead of Diwali.
‘Laxmii’ is directed by Raghava Lawrence. It was earlier titled ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ but some people alleged that there is a stereotypical representation of the transgender community while others felt the film’s title is derogatory as it insults Hindu Goddess Lakshmi.
The title was later changed.The film is a remake of the 2011 Tamil movie ‘Muni 2: Kanchana’, which was also directed by Raghava Lawrence. Besides Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani, ‘Laxmii’ also features Ashwini Kalsekar, Sharad Kelkar, Manu Rishi,and Ayesha Raza.
