A strict lockdown has been imposed not only in India but in many nations across the world. The novel coronavirus pandemic has brought the hustle and bustle of life to a standstill, resulting in a nationwide lockdown on all public places, including cinema halls and theatres. Speculations are that the theatres would not function for long amid the coronavirus outbreak, following which Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani’s upcoming Bollywood movie, Laxmi Bomb, is now all set to release straight on an OTT platform i.e., over-the-top media services. Bollywood industry has been facing a downfall, but thankfully, the online web platforms and streaming sites have worked as an aid for films and other shows. With an expected budget of 50 crores, the movie directed by Raghava Lawrence was slated to hit the theatre screens on 22nd May 2020 during the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.
The comedy-horror movie that had been awaited for by a lot of people, has brought in dismay to some and a sense of relaxation to others who could not bear the news of the postponement of the film. On the other hand, for people like an Indian film critic, who prefer watching movies in the big theatre, the news of the release of Laxmmi Bomb has brought in disappointment. Moreover, the film critic also took to his Twitter handle to share the news that was of high disappointment to him. The team of Laxmi Bomb, however, have been working around the clocks from home, in order to ensure that the entire film and the post-production work is completed by the month of June. According to a report, Akshay Kumar is wary of the investments and efforts put in by people regarding the film. The actor, quite worried about the situation, does not want anyone to face any kind of loss and expects the film to reach as many people as possible. Following the present situation in the world, the entire team of Laxmmi Bomb has been discussing the release of the film on online OTT platforms. Disney and Hotstar are the OTT platforms that ensure a worldwide reach.
