A recent announcement has fans excited, but is the Laxmmi Bomb release date confirmed? Let’s take a quick look.

Who doesn’t love a good horror-comedy, right?

We’ve seen so many amazing ones over the years and we’re delighted to hear that Laxmmi Bomb has managed to find a home despite the pandemic.

Directed by Raghava Lawrence, the film is a Hindi remake of Kanchana, which was also helmed by Raghava.

The narrative centres on a man who fears anything that may be considered supernatural. However, he’s made to confront his fears after he becomes possessed by the spirit of Laxmmi.

It’s a fun premise and one that’s certain to facilitate lots of great comedy. So, when can we expect it?

Laxmmi Bomb release date: How to watch

  • Laxmmi Bomb will be released on Saturday, August 15th 2020.

As highlighted by the Indian Express, it’s currently scheduled for release on Disney+ Hotstar.

This was announced during a Disney+ Hotstar virtual press conference, with such forthcoming films as Bhuj and Sadak 2 also set to release on India’s largest premium streaming platform.

It was originally intended to be released theatrically in May but the COVID-19 pandemic has led filmmakers to reap the benefits of streaming to ensure their work still finds an audience.

Akshay Kumar talks Laxmmi Bomb

During the aforementioned press conference, the 52-year-old actor- Akshay Kumar – opened up about the film, as noted by the Indian Express:

“Horror-comedy is my favourite genre. I had done Bhool Bhulaiyaa before this one. I had heard this story many years ago and I always wanted to make this film. It was like my passion project, but it kept getting delayed for one reason or the other. Eventually, everything fell into place and here we are. I’d like to give a huge credit for this to my co-producers Shabina Khan and Tusshar Kapoor. Also a big thank you to our director Raghava Lawrence.”

It’s wonderful that he managed to finally help get it materialised with such a wealth of talent aboard too.

We look forward to seeing it.
