Hindu Sena has released an official statement objecting to the title of the upcoming Akshay Kumar-starrer.
Days after Laxmmi Bomb was trolled for allegedly promoting ‘love jihad,’ the Akshay Kumar-starrer has once again come under fire. On 20 October, Vishnu Gupta, the founder and National President of Hindu Sena, took to Twitter to announce that the organisation was launching a formal complaint against the film. Hindu Sena has objected to the film’s title, calling it “derogatory” and “offensive.”
Gupta took to Twitter to share a photo of a letter sent by the Hindu Sena addressed to Prakash Javadekar, the Minister of Information and Broadcasting.
Gupta tweeted, “Hindu Sena has given a complaint letter @PrakashJavdekar to take appropriate action against the promoters, cast and crew of the upcoming movie “Laxmmi Bomb” starring @akshaykumar and directed by Sh Raghava Lawrence for making mockery of Hindu Goddess Laxmi’s name,”
The letter further alleges that since the Hindu community worships ‘Goddess Laxmi’ especially during Diwali, the film’s release has been scheduled during the festival so as to provoke the Hindu community.
