The heavy rains in Mumbai have affected several lives from the last couple of days and superstar Akshay Kumar too has faced a similar fate for his upcoming Laxmmi Bomb. Apparently, Akshay was to shoot for two days out of four-day schedule at Madh Island in Mumbai, but it went unsuccessful due to heavy downpour.
According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, a source close to the Raghava Lawrence directorial quoted, “Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb two-day schedule on Madh Island, last week, had to be cancelled due to bad weather. Also, most of the unit and Akshay himself prefer to travel by the local ferries from Versova, to the shooting ground as by car it takes almost two hours to go and two to return, but last week the seas were too choppy and rough to travel on. His dates are tight as he does many films a year and they got wasted. For Akshay, time is precious but he had no choice but to wait it out those two days at home. He will shoot this week on those dates as from Sunday he started promoting his next release Mission Mangal.”
“It was on a ground where the hero and his friends, select an abandoned field, which is rumoured to be haunted, to play cricket. They carry their bat home, little realizing that the transgender who owned the land was killed and buried in that land. The transgender’s spirit also accompanies them home and that’s where the story begins. But Akshay and his co-stars could not play on the grounds as it was muddy and dirty and there were continuous rains. Apart from the travel, the continuous downpour in Mumbai since the last week had led to waterlogging and flooding at various places in the city and its suburban areas. Akshay will mostly shoot those scenes this week, once he gets a break from the promotion of Mission Mangal. Raghava Lawrence and co-producer Shabina Khan resumed shooting on Madh Island from Monday,” the source adds.
Laxmmi Bomb is the remake of Tamil horror comedy, Kanchana, and will star Kiara Advani as the female lead opposite Khiladi Kumar.
