Akshay Kumar-starrer Laxmmi Bomb will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar on Diwali (November 9).
Directed by Raghava Lawrence, the film is a remake of the 2011 Tamil horror-comedy Muni 2: Kanchana. The original story follows the ghost of a transgender woman who possesses a faint-hearted man to take revenge on her murderers.
The Hindi remake also stars Kiara Advani, Tusshar Kapoor, Sharad Kelkar and others. It was earlier speculated that the makers were pulling the film off OTT to wait for theatres to reopen.
