Mohnish Singh |May 27, 2019

“Laxmmi Bomb”, headlined by superstar Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani, is an official remake of Raghava Lawrence’s Tamil horror-comedy “Kanchana 2”. Lawrence had recently walked out of the Hindi remake owing to some differences with the makers.

Raghava Lawrence has said that he may reconsider his decision of helming the Bollywood remake of his Tamil horror-comedy Kanchana 2 (2011). But he has one condition! The actor-filmmaker says that he will return to the director’s chair if the makers give him the respect that he deserves.

For the uninitiated, Raghava Lawrence had been signed on to direct the upcoming Bollywood film Laxmmi Bomb. Starring Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani, the film is an official remake of Tamil hit Kanchana 2. Raghava Lawrence, whose name needs no introduction down South, has directed and starred in the entire Kanchana franchise.

So, when the makers in Mumbai decided to remake the film in Hindi, Raghava Lawrence was the obvious choice for the project. Everything was hunky-dory and the team had even begun production. However, as the shoot had just started, the makers unveiled the first look of Akshay Kumar from the film without discussing anything with Lawrence. This did not go down well with the filmmaker and he stepped down as the director of the film.

The latest development on the issue is that the makers are keen to have Raghava Lawrence back onboard. Lawrence has himself revealed that the makers are coming to meet him in Chennai. He adds that if he receives proper self-respect for his job, he will rethink of directing the much-awaited film again.

On Sunday, the filmmaker posted a statement on Twitter, saying:
