He added that he’s really happy to be part of the project again. In May, Lawrence chose to exit after the makers unveiled the film’s first look without his knowledge. In a statement, he said he can’t be part of the project as he felt “disrespected” and “disappointed”. He had tweeted to say: “Dear Friends and Fans..!I 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, #Laxmmibomb Hindi remake of Kanchana.”

He even asked the makers to find a replacement for him and said that he will hand over the script to Akshay. In ‘Laxmmi Bomb’, Akshay plays a character that will be possessed by a ghost of a transgender. Kiara Advani has been signed as the leading lady.
