‘Laxmmi Bomb’ Makers Sent Legal Notice By Shri Rajput Karni Sena, Demanding Change In Title
Mumbai: There seems to be trouble ahead for Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Laxmmi Bomb‘. With just about two weeks left for the release, Shri Rajput Karni Sena has sent the makers a legal notice demanding a change in the title.
The movie, starring Akshay and Kiara Advani in the lead roles, is scheduled to release on November 9 on Disney+ Hotstar. The film centres around Akshay’s character getting possessed by the ghost of a transgender person, News18 reported.
The legal notice was sent by advocate Raghavendra Mehrotra, on behalf of Shri Rajput Karni Sena. As per the notice, Laxmmi Bomb, was being considered “derogatory” and “offensive” to Goddess Laxmi by the Hindu community. It further claimed that the makers had “deliberately” used the title Laxmmi Bomb with the sole purpose of lowering the “dignity” of and to show “disrespect” towards the goddess. It added that the name sends out a wrong message to the society at large towards the “ideology, customs, gods and goddesses of Hindu religion,” News18 reported quoting ZoomTV.
