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”. 

Laxmmi Bomb stars starring Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani in the lead roles and revolves around Akshay's character being possessed by a transgender person's ghost. The film's trailer also faced some sharp reactions. It is scheduled to release on November 9 on Disney+ Hotstar. 

Apart from the Karni Sena, actor Mukesh Khanna of Shaktimaan fame also slammed the film's title. In a lengthy post, he wrote, "So TITLE ki hi baat karte hain. 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 !!!"

Kya Laxmi Bomb Title se koi film release honi chahiye ? Is par poore Desh Me Bahas chidhi hui hai. Kuch log film ko ban karne ki maang kar rahe hai. Mujhse poocho to film ban Jayez naheen hai. Kyonki kisi ne film Abhi dekhi naheen hai. Sirf trailer dekha hai. Film Abhi baaki hai. So TITLE ki hi baat karte hain. 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 !!! Ye DHRISHTATA Filmy log is liye karte hai ki Wo janate hain ki isme shor machega. Log chillayenge. Phir chup ho jayenge. Lekin lage hathon film ka Promotion ho jayega. Film to release honi hi hai. Log Toot padenge FIRST DAY theatre par dekhne ke liye ki Kya hai is film me ? Kya hai film ke title ka matlab ?? Ye hota aaya hai...Hota rahega... Ise Rokna padhega ! Aur ye Janata Janardan Ya PUBLIC hi kar sakti hai. Ek baat to saaf hai. In commercial logon me Hinduon ka Dar ya khouf ratti bhar bhi naheen hai. Wo unhe SAHISHNU manate hain. Soft target samajhte hain. Unhe pata hai kisi aur Dharam ya Samprdaay se ye panga lekar ke batao TALWAREN Nikal aayengi. TALWAREN !! Isliye unko lekar film ke title naheen bante. Kuch Log ise Love Jehad ya Islamic funding ka naam de rahe hain. Ho sakta hai, naheen bhi ho sakta. Lekin films me ४० saal beeta kar itna to Daave ke saath kah sakta hoon ki har Producer apni film ko HIT dekhna chahta hai. Is liye aise paintare laata hai. LAXMI BOMB unhi me se Ek hai. DIFFUSE karo ise !!!!
