All doesn’t seem over as far as Raghava Lawrence’s association with Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ is concerned. The actor-filmmaker might just return to helm the Hindi remake of ‘Kanchana’ after quitting the project, claiming he was disrespected from the makers. Lawrence has now revealed that the producers are set to meet him over the controversy, and if he is convinced with their point of view, he will direct the movie.
In a Twitter post on Saturday, Raghava Lawrence stated, “Hi friends and fans. I had tweeted about stepping out of the Hindi film ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ a few days back. Post my tweet, both Akshay Kumar sir fans and my fans have been requesting me to do this film. I’m overwhelmed with their genuine love. But, trust me, I'm equally upset for the past one week as you are. I was very thrilled to do this film, spent a lot of quality time on pre-production works, and have also blocked my dates for this film. Tomorrow, the Producers are coming to Chennai to meet me. It’s completely in their hands now, if I’m given proper self-respect for my job, then I'll think about it. Let’s see after the meeting. Wanted to share this message to all fans, who were genuinely concerned.”
Lawrence last week had expressed his disappointment about not being kept in the loop about the poster release of the movie. He also stated he was unhappy about the poster design.
The director had also stated that he won’t hold back his script since he respected Akshay and will meet him to step out of the project in a good way.
In another interview, he stated that he was having creative differences with the producers Tusshar Kapoor and Shabina Khan.
‘Laxmmi Bomb’ also stars Kiara Advani in the lead and releases on June 5, 2020.
