Bollywood actors Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar had a tender moment on social media after the trailer of the latter's film, Laxmi Bomb was dropped, reported Hindustan Times. Kanchana means "gold" which is a form of Lakshmi. When the trailer of Laxmmi Bomb was released earlier this month, the "Like" and "Dislike" buttons on YouTube were hidden, leading to many netizens terming the film's makers as "cowards". Like a dhamaka of Laxmmi Bomb can not be missed, the transgender lead character is powerful and radiant. "Hence the name fits perfectly", the director said in a statement.
Q. What made you choose a story that emphasises on the transgender community?
Lawrence said the idea to make Kanchana came when a few transgenders approached a trust run by him. After watching the film audiences will know what I am talking about.
Q. This is the first time that a mainstream Bollywood actor is playing a transgender character, what are your thoughts on this?
"After "Kanchana" released in Tamil, the movie received huge appreciation from transgenders". Raghava believes that with Akshay Kumar playing the role, the message will reach to a wider audience.
A party number, as per the what one can perceive from the teaser, the song will feature lead actors Akshay and Kiara Advani romancing in picturesque locales of Dubai.
In the upcoming flick, which is a "circus of family and ghosts", while Akshay will be seen playing the role of a transgender, Kiara Advani will be seen in a pivotal role.
The character of "Asif" does not believe in ghosts as a dialogue confirms- "Jis din sach mein mere samne bhoot aaya na, toh maa kasam choodiya pehn lunga". As the trailer moves forward, the carpet of both comedy and horror rolls out in snippets.
Amid the Twitter outrage over the controversial name of the film Laxmmi Bomb, its director Raghava Lawrence explained why the name is appropriate for the film.
