Actor Akshay Kumar has revealed his look from the remake of Tamil film Kanchana, titled Laxmmi Bomb. The actor is seen applying makeup in the picture with a serious look on his face. The film will star Kiara Advani as the female lead and will hit theatres in June, next year.
Akshay shared the look of the film on Twitter with the caption, “Bringing you one bomb of a story,#LaxmmiBomb starring @Advani_Kiara & yours truly!Bursting in cinemas on 5th June,2020. Fox Star Studios Presents. A Cape of Good Films Production in association with Shabinaa Entertainment & Tusshar Entertainment House. Directed by Raghava Lawrence.”
The film is directed by Raghava Lawrence, who directed the original Muni 2: Kanchana, which went on to become a blockbuster. Kiara had earlier shared a picture from the sets of the film with the caption, “First Day of #LAAXMIBOMB @akshaykumar @RowdyGabbar #raghavalawrence @TusshKapoor and the journey has just begun.” She was seen holding the clapperboard for a shot.
According to a report in Mid-Day, a source told the news daily, “While Akshay plays the protagonist who gets possessed by the spirit of a transgender, Kiara will portray the superstar’s girlfriend in the movie. Although the female lead did not have a significant role in the original version, Kiara will enjoy a substantial part in the adaptation. The script too has been tweaked to suit the sensibilities of the Hindi film audience.”
Kiara and Akshay will also be seen together in Good News. The film is about a couple trying to have a baby. While Akshay stars opposite Kareena Kapoor in the film, Kiara pairs up with Diljit Dosanjh.
