Raghava Lawrence walking out of the Bollywood remake ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ of his super hit movie ‘Kanchana’ (Muni: 2) was more than a week older, now. Besides the reason, we already know that the director wasn’t consulted before releasing the first look poster of the movie, there seem to be several other reasons, as well.
One among them was said to be Kiara Advani. The director, Raghava Lawrence wanted Laxmi Rai to play the female lead, but the Bollywood production team wanted a big heroine like Deepika Padukone or Katrina Kaif for playing the heroine alongside Akshay Kumar.
However, without his consultation, the makers of the Hindi remake finalized Kiara Advani alongside Akshay Kumar. Though Lawrence wasn’t informed about Kiara Advani being considered for the role in the first place, he had to accept as he was tired of the fightings.
So, it’s not just Kiara or the first look poster that led to the decision, what Raghava wanted is the self-respect at the workplace, and that was lacking there. When Kiara came on board, he had to compromise, but he couldn’t do the same for all the things that were done without his knowledge.
