Actor-filmmaker Raghava Lawrence who was to direct Akshay Kumar starrer Hindi horror-comedy Laxmmi Bomb, existed from the project as he felt DISRESPECTED! Laxmmi Bomb is also the remake of Lawrence's Tamil horror comedy Kanchana, which was also originally written and directed by him. But just a few days back, the first look of Akshay from Laxmmi was revealed and director Raghava was not kept in the loop.

He took to his social media to reveal the reason for his exit. He wrote, "There is an old popular saying in Tamil which tells 'Don't step into any house where there is no respect'. In this world, more than money and fame, self-respect is the most important attribute to a person's character. So I have decided to step out of the project, Laxmmi Bomb, the Hindi remake of Kanchana."

He further revealed how there were many reasons for his exit, and further stated, "but one of them is that the first look poster of the film was released without my knowledge and even without discussing anything with me. I was informed about this by a third person. It is very painful for a director to know about his movie's first look release from others." He said he was "disrespected" and "disappointed." And further stated, "As a creator, I'm also not satisfied with the poster design (of first look) as well. This shouldn't happen to any director. I can hold back my script because I haven't signed any agreement regarding this film, but I won't do it because I personally respect Akshay Kumar sir a lot."

He also revealed how he will meet Akshay Kumar and hand over the script to him and step out of the project in "a good way." The film which is being produced by Shabina Khan and Tusshar Kapoor are in search of a new director but till then Akshay will take control of the project.

Akshay Kumar in Laxmmi Bomb will be seen playing the role of a person possessed by a ghost of a Eunuch. The film also stars Kiara Advani ad the leading lady. The film is slated to release on June 5, 2020.
