Makers of Laxmmi Bomb received a legal notice from Karni Sena to change the title of the movie. The notice is received after the release of the trailer. The filmmakers have changed the title from Laxmmi Bomb to Laxmii. The film is going to release on November 9 this year in 2020 on Disney Plus Hotstar. 

The film features Akshay Kumar in the main leading role along with Kiara Advani. The trailer of the film was released on October 9 in 2020. Karni Sena sent a legal notice to the filmmakers today to change the name of the film.  In the notice, Karni Sena stated that the title of the film is " derogatory and offensive to Goddess Laxmi and was sending a wrong message to the society towards the "ideology, customs, gods and goddesses of Hindu religion".

The announcement of the recent development is made by Taran Adarsh on his Twitter account.                                  " NEW DEVELOPMENT... #LaxmmiBomb title changed... New title: #Laxmii... Premieres 9 Nov 2020 on #DisneyPlusHotstarVIP... Stars #AkshayKumar and #KiaraAdvani."

The film is based on a horror-comedy in which Akshay Kumar gets possessed by a transgender ghost who seeks revenge for being victimized. Kiara Advani plays the role of Akshay Kumar's wife in the film. 

Laxmii film has been directed by Raghava Lawrence which is releasing on Disney+ Hotar. The film is a remake of the Tamil blockbuster film 'Muni 2: Kanchana'. Ayesha Raza Mishra, Tusshar Kapoor, Tarun Arora, Sharad Kelkar, Ashwini Kalsekar, Manu Rishi, Babu Antony, Mir Sarwar, Rajesh Sharma, and Muskaan Khubchandani are prominent roles in the movie.
