Farhad Samji written Akshay Kumar starrer Kanchana remake titled Laaxmi Bomb
Just last week, Farhad Samji who is currently directing Housefull 4 had confirmed that the Akshay Kumar starrer that he was writing which was the Kanchana remake had been tentatively titled Laaxmi.Well, now we hear that the makers of the film have finally locked the title for the remake. If what we hear is true, then apparently the film has been titled Laaxmi Bomb.In fact, confirming this new development we came across this image of the clap board from the film that clearly displays the title of the Kanchana remake as Laaxmi Bomb.Directed by Raghava Lawrence, the film is being produced by Cape of Good Films, Tusshar Entertainment House and Shabinaa Entertainment. Interestingly, while Raghava Lawrence both directed and starred in the Muni series of which Kanchana is a part, he will apparently be only behind the camera in the Hindi remake. While an official announcement about the title and cast details of the film are awaited, we hear that Laaxmi Bomb went on floors a couple of days back. As for the film itself, the Kanchana remake or Laaxmi Bomb follows the story of a ghost seeking vengeance for being wronged and haunts everyone who is staying in the house. The original set of Muni and Kanchana films was directed by Raghava Lawrence who also played the lead in the film. There were reports earlier stating that the film will see Akshay in the role of a ghost but the details are currently kept under wraps. There were also speculations about Kiara Advani playing the leading lady along with Madhavan playing an integral role in the film but there has been no update on that front.
You Go Girl: Bhumi Pednekar is floored by Deepika Padukones Chhapaak transformation
Deepika Padukone and Bhumi Pednekar have something in common. Both these actresses have pushed the envelope in their respective films Chhapaak and Saand Ki Aankh by transforming themselves entirely for their roles on screen with the help of prosthetics. While Deepika plays a real-life acid attack survivor, Bhumi plays the role of the worlds oldest sharpshooter. Both these ladies have used prosthetics and endured long-hours of make-up, to turn themselves unrecognisable on screen. Their commitment for their films has been lauded by audiences as both their looks went viral. Bhumi is all praise for Deepika who is bringing focus to a hugely relevant and a burning social issue by picking Chhapaak as her next big project. I saw the first look for Chhapaak and it was brilliant. Seeing Deepika transform and become unrecognizable and so true to that part she was playing was amazing. Her transformation stopped the press. Im really proud to see the work that all we actresses are doing. It pushes me to do better work, Bhumi tells us. She adds, It is a great time for women in the industry as from Saand Ki Aankh to Chhapaak , different unconventional subjects and issues are coming to the forefront and are being mounted on women. This effectively means people just want to see good cinema and all the talk of movies cant be mounted on women because of business reasons is nothing but a patriarchal stereotype. Bhumi is thrilled with the love her first look got. She says, Its is absolutely overwhelming to see the love that Saand Ki Aankh is getting and its feels great that our look is being appreciated. As an actor, I have given my all for this film and after seeing all the positive reactions, the daily 3 hours of make-up has definitely been worth it. The acclaimed actress has always transformed herself on screen. No one can forget Bhumi putting on kilos for her debut hit Dum Laga Ke Haisha or her metamorphosis in the hugely appreciated Lust Stories and Son Chiriya.She says, I enjoy transforming myself for my roles. Its quite exciting for me, to see the way people react and how amazed they get with everything new you do. So, yes the transformation to become Chandro was necessary as it was important that I look real. I feel a lot of responsibility playing her on screen. Both Chandro dadi and Prakashi dadi are champions and are real-life fighters and Im happy that the film is getting so much love.
