Netizens trend 'Ban Laxmmi Movie' & claim Akshay's film promotes love jihad (Social Media)
Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film ‘Laxmi Bomb’ is facing a lot of criticism these days. Fresh trouble seems to have mounted for Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb as the Karni Sena has sent a legal notice to the team demanding its title be changed, days before release.
The film has been making headlines for various seasons ever since its trailer released. The latest legal notice by Karni Sena deems the film’s title as ‘derogatory’ and ‘offensive’ to Goddess Laxmi by the Hindu community.
The legal notice was sent by advocate Raghavendra Mehrotra on behalf of Shri Rajput Karni Sena. The notice also claims that the film’s makers have purposely used the word ‘Laxmmi’ in the title to show ‘disrespect’ and lower the dignity of Goddess Laxmi. It also claims that it hurts religious sentiments and is attacks the “ideology, customs, gods and goddesses of Hindu religion”.

Laxmi ke aage Bomb jodna shararat se bhara lagta hai. Commercial interest ki soch lagta hai. Kya ise allow karna chahiye ? Obviously NAHEEN ! Kya aap Allah Bomb ya Badmash Jesus film ka naam rakh sakte hain ?Obviously NAHEEN !! To Phir Laxmi Bomb kaise !!!”
