Kanchana or Laxmi is the same thing – Day 1902

By 29 October, 2020Uncategorized

Sometimes, the simplest decisions taken out of instinct get blown out of proportion as it happened with Akshay Kumar’s trailer of forthcoming film Laxmmi Bomb. The actor and the director were viciously attacked by detractors on twitter. To clear out all the negative clutter Tamil director Raghava Lawrence sheds light on the back story of his film,
“People are raising objection to my changing the original title ‘Kanchana’ to ‘Laxmi Bomb’. I mean shouldn’t it be my choice? The Tamil film was named after the lead character Kanchana which means ‘gold’ but we felt that Laxmmi will be more appropriate for the Hindi speaking audience and because the film was releasing during Diwali time, we added Bomb to it… “
“Anyone who has seen the original, will tell you that the film has a strong social message. It is inspired from a true story. I have been running a Trust that aids underprivileged and one day, a group of transgenders approached us for aid.
“They told me their story, it was so moving and I was inspired to make a film. When Kanchana released down South, the transgender community came home to bless me. So, my request to all is that please don’t speculate before watching the film.”
