After treating fans with the news of releasing the much-awaited film Laxmmi Bomb on the OTT platforms, the makers of the film have finally unveiled the release date. Actor Akshay Kumar shared a small video on Twitter while announcing the exciting news. In the post, the actor wrote that this year during Diwali apart from “Laxmmi” there will be a “bomb.” He further wrote that the film will release on November 9th on Disney Plus Hotstar.
The small clip starts with a saying which reads, “Wen the outcast becomes outraged.” Followed by the saying, the clip shows an idol of Lord Lakshmi which slowly takes the shape of Akshay Kumar. Slowly with every passing second, Akshay Kumar’s face gets transformed with his character as a transgender in the film. Going by that fierce looks on his face in the clip, it seems that this role of the actor is all set to enthrall his fans with his skills.

Apart from Akshay Kumar, the other star cast of the film including Kiara Advani and Tusshar Kapoor also shared similar videos on their Instagram while informing the fans about the release date if the film this Diwali. Sometime back, Akshay Kumar said theatres have the "first birthright" over movies and though he's excited his upcoming 'Laxmmi Bomb' will stream digitally, he feels sad it couldn't release on the big screen. The horror-comedy is set to stream on Disney+Hotstar, bypassing a theatrical release as screens remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In a virtual press conference, Akshay said OTT release was the only wise option in the current scenario.
To be honest, today I am excited about this platform. But yes, I'll say that I am also sad for theatres. After all, movies are theatres first birthright. But in the current situation, everyone's safety is of utmost priority. Today with theatres being shut and people watching movies on OTT platforms, if I can make my fans happy by releasing the film on Disney+Hotstarwhich is a big platform with a massive reach then I am glad.
