Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar on Wednesday revealed that his upcoming horror-comedy Laxmmi Bomb will release on November 9 on Disney Plus Hotstar.
Akshay took to Twitter to announce the release date of the much-anticipated remake of the 2011 Tamil hit Muni 2: Kanchana.
The actor also unveiled Laxmmi Bomb’s teaser, which first flashes the sentence, “When Outcast becomes Outraged.” A voiceover is then heard saying, “Aaj se tumhara naam Laxman nahi, Laxmi hoga,” as Akshay’s face is shown transforming from a man to a woman.
Iss Diwali aapke gharon mein “laxmmi” ke saath ek dhamakedar “bomb” bhi aayega. Aa rahi hai #LaxmmiBomb 9th November ko, only on @DisneyPlusHSVIP!
