Bollywood super star Akshay Kumar is facing anger of netizens a few days earlier when he shared a video talking about the Bollywood drug nexus. Many of them demanded boycotting his movie Laxmmi Bomb because of the same. And now, trouble has mounted for the movie and its makers again. In fact, the hashtag #BoycottLaxmmiBomb is currently trending on Twitter. Well, the users of the microblogging site have cited multiple reasons for putting out this demand for boycotting the Raghava Lawrence directorial.
One section of the netizens is alleging that Laxmmi Bomb’s title is derogatory as it insults Goddess Lakshmi. On the other hand, another section feels that there has been a stereotypical representation of the transgender community in the movie. If that was not enough, a few others have also accused it of hurting religious sentiments and promoting what is called the ‘love jihad.’ That is because Akshay’s name in the movie is reportedly Asif while Kiara Advani’s name is Priya.

If Bollywood messes with the image of the Pride Air Force of the country, then it is Creative Liberty, but if the people of the country ask questions to Bollywood, then it becomes a matter of tarnishing their image.#BoycottLaxmmiBomb pic.twitter.com/XPHiboWXuf

Why is the film named Laxmi? Why are Hindus denouncing Bollywood gods and goddesses, Hindus should oppose it openly, if possible, then they should come on the streets #BoycottLaxmmiBomb pic.twitter.com/RTR1KI3PTK
