Talking about playing a man possessed by the spirit of a transgender called Laxmm, Akshay Kumar said, “In my entire 30-year-long career, this has been my most intensive role mentally. I’ve never experienced such a character before, with this kind of action, reaction, body language. Credit for this goes to my director. He introduced me to a version of me that I didn’t know even existed.”

There are people saying that makers of the film should have waited till the theatres across the country re-open rather than selling the film at Rs 125 crore to Disney+Hotstar.
It is reported that the makers of the film will take yet another month to announce the release date of Laxxmi Bomb on Disney+Hotstar. Currently, the film is in post-production stage.
