Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, a number of Bollywood films are taking the OTT route. After Amitabh Bachchan’s and Ayushmann Khurrana’s Gulabo Sitabo made a splash on Amazon Prime Video, several more films are getting a direct-to-web opening. Akshay Kumar’s highly anticipated film Laxmmi Bomb has finally headed the digital release way. Laxmmi Bomb was initially scheduled to release in theatres on May 22. However, the film is going to be one of the 7 films that will stream on Disney+Hotstar.
Making an official announcement during Disney+Hotstar's live event this evening, Akshay shared two intriguing posters of the film. The live event was moderated by Varun Dhawan. Talking about his experience, Akshay said, "Laxmmi Bomb was a mentally intensive role. It is 'never experienced before' kind of role. I took as many retakes to give the perfect shot”. He further added that director Raghava Lawrence gave him the opportunity to experience something new with the film.

Speaking about playing a transgender character, he said, ”I would like to thank my director Lawrence sir. He introduced me to a version of me that I didn't know existed. This character is different to all the characters I have ever portrayed. Even after doing 150 films, I was genuinely excited to be on set every single day, pushing the boundaries, learning more about myself."
