Raghava thanks Akshay for doing ‘tough role’ in ‘Laxmii’; says ‘he is a good human being’

As Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar’s horror comedy flick ‘Laxmii’ released today, the movie’s director Raghava Lawrence penned down a heartfelt note for the actor, saying usually actors won’t accept such tough roles, but he believes that Akshay being a good human being cares a lot for the society.

Raghava who is making his directorial debut in Bollywood with ‘Laxmii’, wrote the note ahead of the release of the film, which premiered on Disney+Hotstar at 1905 hrs today. It is a Hindi remake of the Tamil film ‘Kanchana’ that was also directed by him. Akshay is seen playing the role of a transgender in the movie.

“Through Tamil movie Kanchana, I wanted to convey the pain and struggles of transgenders and the movie received lot of appreciation from transgender’s community and the public. Similarly, when Akshay sir is acting in its Hindi remake, I hope the message will reach to a wider audience. Normally, actors won’t accept such tough roles but I believe Akshay sir being such a good human being he cares a lot for the society and previously he has given so many good message films… My special thanks to Akshay sir for accepting and doing this role,” Raghava said in his note on Twitter.

“And I’d like to extend my Thanks to sister Shabina for the whole process of this film, Tusshar sir, Kiara Advani for acting beautifully, My DOP Vetri, my co- directors and to all technicians who worked for this film,” added Raghava.
