‘The Show must go on’; Akshay Kumar replies to Taapsee Pannu’s disappointment about ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ not releasing in theatres


Superstar Akshay Kumar replied to a tweet by Taapsee Pannu on Friday, where his ‘Baby’ co-star had expressed disappointment that his much-hyped Diwali release ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ would open on OTT and not on the big screen.

Taapsee expressed her emotions shortly after Akshay Kumar posted the trailer of his upcoming film on his Twitter account. Reacting to the trailer, Taapsee tweeted: “You have KILLED IT n how!!!! I’m actually disappointed I’m not gonna watch it in theatres!”

“You’re not alone… but the show must go on. Thank you for the love on the trailer,” Akshay repiled Taapsee on Twitter.

Meanwhile, excited reactions have been pouring in for the trailer from fans as well as industry colleagues.

Actress Meera Chopra tweeted a similar view as Taapsee: “Wow wow wow!! I so wish i could see this on big screen. Looks extremely fun, and we all need laughter in our lives right now. Thank you @akshaykumar for #LaxmmiBomb. Cant wait to watch!”

Akshay replied: “Thank you so much… Hope you will enjoy it with your family… laughter guaranteed.”

Trailer of ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ has got more than 5 million views within 10 hours of its release and it trending at number 2 spot on YouTube.

‘Laxmmi Bomb’ is written and directed by Raghava Lawrence in his Hindi directorial debut. It is a remake of the Tamil film ‘Muni 2: Kanchana’ and stars Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani in leading roles.

Akshay Kumar plays the role of a transgender in the film. The horror-comedy film deals with a ghost seeking vengeance for being wronged and haunts everyone who is staying in the house.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, makers of the film decided the film not to have theatrical release of the film in India and it will stream on Disney+Hotstar on 9 November 2020.

Meanwhile, even as theatre owners gear up to reopen theatres on October 15, number of films were announced on Friday for OTT release, including Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan-starrer ‘Coolie No. 1’, Rajkummar Rao-starrer ‘Chhalaang’, and ‘Durgavati’ featuring Bhumi Pednekar.
