Akshay Kumar has announced the release date for his horror to comedy film Laxmmi Bomb

Akshay Kumar announces his film Laxmmi Bomb as an OTT release for Diwali

Actor Akshay Kumar announcing the release date for his horror comedy Laxmmi Bomb on Disney+ Hotstar on Wednesday caused further anxiety among India’s theatre chains. The Raghava Lawrence directed film would hit the home screen for the Diwali weekend on 9 November when multiplex, and single screen owners have been desperately waiting for reopening permits but also know they have no content to bank on, even if cinemas are allowed to start.

Kumar’s own action thriller Sooryavanshi has committed to a Diwali release in theatres, but may be compelled to push its date if not seek a partial digital release, entertainment industry experts say.

As things stand now, even if cinemas are permitted to reopen in October, they will not be able to function entirely before the end of the month or the beginning of November. That clouds the coveted Diwali weekend with uncertainty.

When an Akshay Kumar announces his film Laxmmi Bomb as an OTT release for Diwali, it is a clear indication that theatres will have to wait for some more time to open up, independent producer and distributor Mukesh Mehta tweeted soon after the release announcement.
