Fact Check: Will Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb Have A Web Release?
New Delhi: Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani’s film Laxmmi Bomb might reportedly have a “direct-to-web release” due to COVID-19 and the lockdown.
Quoting sources, mid-day.com reported that the actor and the makers are “discussing the offer” to premiere the film on Disney+Hotstar. “Akshay, director Raghava Lawrence and the producers are discussing the offer. There’s a lot of post-production work left on the movie, including editing, background music, mixing and VFX. Since the team is working from home, the process is taking longer than usual. However, the makers are hoping to have the film ready by June. Although currently, the lockdown is on till May 3, theatres may continue to remain closed to ensure social distancing. In such a scenario, the team may consider having a direct-to-web release,” the source was quoted as saying in mid-day.
According to the source, Akshay Kumar doesn’t want any parties involved in the project to suffer loss. “Akshay wants to make sure none of the invested parties make losses and that the movie reaches a wide audience. While Disney+Hotstar ensure a worldwide reach, making the film available across small towns in India will be a concern for them,” said the source.
