Akshay Kumar star Laxmii has released the first poster for the film after changing the title from Laxmmi Bomb to Laxmi. The movie stars have taken to their respective social media accounts to reveal the movie’s poster.
Laxmmi Bomb now Laxmii landed in controversy after Hindu Sena wrote a letter to Prakash Javadekar, the Minister of Information and Broadcasting, demanding that the title be changed. In his letter, Hindu Sena called the film “derogatory” and “offensive.”
Sharing the new poster of the film on Twitter, Akshay wrote, “Ab harr ghar mein aayegi #Laxmii! Ghar waalon ke saath taiyaar rehna 9th November ko!
