Meanwhile, news is coming that OTT platform Disney Plus Hotstar has released the film at 6 pm, about one and a half hours ahead of time.

Already the controversy over the film
'Lakshmi' is already facing controversies. After the release of the trailer of the film, where it was accused of promoting love-jihad, Hindu organizations opened a front against it, accusing it of hurting religious sentiments. However, the film's title was changed from 'Laxmi Bomb' to Laxmi, keeping these feelings in mind before release.
What is the story of the film?
The film's story revolves around a character named Asif (Akshay Kumar), who falls in love with a girl named Priya (Kiara Advani). The twist in the story comes when Asif goes to convince Priya's family and a spirit inside her lives. Akshay had said in an interview that he did not play a role like Lakshmi in his 30-year career.
'Hindi remake of Kanchana'
'Lakshmi' is a Hindi remake of Tamil film 'Kanchana', directed by Raghav Lawrence. Raghav had told in an interview that 'Kanchana' means gold, which is a form of Lakshmi. Hence he named the Hindi remake 'Lakshmi'. The main character in 'Kanchana' was played by Raghav Lawrence himself.
