Sensation of disrespect u0026 rsquo; the director of 'Laxmmi Bomb' leaves the movie
Akshay Kumar -starrer ' Laxmmi pump ', which is the Hindi remake of the popular southern movie' Kanchana ', has run into controversy after the manufacturers released the first glimpse of the film. Raghava Lawrence , the director of 'Kanchana' and also its Hindi remake, was not too happy with this development. Expressing his grievance in a post on his Twitter handle, he said that the first look of the film was released without his knowledge, and therefore, he was opting out of the movie.
In his post, he said, “There is an old popular saying in Tamil which tells, “Don’t step into any house where there is no respect”. In this world, more than money and fame, self-respect is the most important attribute to a person’s character. So, I have decided to step out of the project, ‘ Laxmmi pump ’ the Hindi remake of Kanchana . I don’t want to mention the reason because there are multiple reasons, but one of them is that the first look poster of the film was released today without my knowledge and even without discussing anything with me. I was informed about this by a third person. It is very painful for a director to know about his movie’s first look release from others. I feel very disrespected and disappointed. As a creator, I am not satisfied with the poster design as well. This shouldn’t happen to any director. I can hold back my script because I haven’t signed any agreement regarding this film, but I won’t do it because it is not professional. I’m ready to give my script because I personally respect Akshay Kumar sir a lot. They can replace me with some other director according to their wish. Soon, I'm going to meet Akshay Kumar to give the script and step out of this project in a good way. All the very best to the entire team. I wish the movie a great success. (sic)
His tweet came a day after Akshay, Tusshar Kapoor and Shabinaa Khan, producers of the film, released the first poster on Twitter. Their posts clearly mentioned Raghava as the director of the project. We tried reaching out to Tusshar, Shabina, Akshay and Raghava, but they did not respond till the time of going to press.
