Reports have come round that the filmmakers decided to change the movie title after multiple Hindu outfits protested against the old name, saying that it violated religious sentiments and saw it as an insult to Goddess Laxmi. A legal notice has been reported by Karni Sena to the makers of Laxmmi Bomb which requested a change in the movie title.

As per the media reports, the Akshay Kumar starrer went for the censor certificate, and post a discussion with CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification), the filmmakers made a decision to change it into Laxmii while taking the sentiments of its viewers into account.

For those who have not known, Laxmii is the Hindi reboot version of Tamil movie Kanchana which was released in 2011, also helmed by Raghava Lawrence. Previously, in a talk to a news agency, the director shared that he altered the title to Laxmmi Bomb from Kanchana in order to appeal the audience. He said,

"Our Tamil film was named after the main lead character Kanchana. Kanchana means 'gold' which is a form of Lakshmi. Earlier I considered going the same way for the Hindi remake but we collectively decided that the name must appeal to the Hindi audience as well and what better than Laxmmi.”

For this film, actor Akshay Kumar plays the part of a man possessed by a transgender ghost. Talking about his role in the upcoming movie, Akshay said,

"In my career of 30 years, this is my most mentally intense role. It has been that tough. I've never experienced something like this before. The credit goes to my director, Lawrence sir. He introduced me to a version of myself which I didn't know existed."
