Akshay on playing a transgender in Laxmmi Bomb

At the virtual meet, Akshay Kumar spoke about shooting for Laxmmi Bomb and how it was difficult for him to play the role of a transgender person. He said, "It was mentally the toughest role for me. I am thankful to Lawrence sir who introduced me to a side, I never knew I had. We wanted to make sure everything is perfect and not offend the community in any way."

"This was the first time I willingly gave multiple retakes as we wanted everything to be perfect. Even after doing 150 films, I was genuinely very happy and excited to go on set everyday. It was also a learning experience for me as working on it helped me about gender equality. Also, what may come, kindness is the only key to world peace," added Kumar.

Akshay Kumar on donning a saree on screen

Calling it the most graceful outfit, Akshay Kumar said that it also fits all sizes. He hailed women who wear sarees and go for work. "It was a new experience for me, and quite a difficult task. Leave aside fighting and dancing, walking in it was also tough. My stylist would come after every shot to redo the pallu. I think every guy should wear it once to understand the difficulty."

varun Dhawan then quizzed Ajay Devgn on how Kumar looked in a saree. Quite embarassed by the question, Devgn smiled to say that he cannot call him hot but he is looking quite graceful. "I have known about the script and it's a fantastic one. Also, the role is fabulous and Akshay is carrying it really well."

Throwback | Raghava Lawrence shares a photo with Akshay Kumar

Laxmmi Bomb was supposed to be released theatrically on Eid (May 22), but that did not happen due to the worldwide outbreak of coronavirus.

The first look of the film featuring Akshay Kumar was released in October last year. It had the actor decked up in a red sari and a huge red bindi while standing before the statue of Goddess Durga and gazing intensely into the camera. He had captioned the post, "Navratri is about bowing to the inner goddess and celebrating your limitless strength. On this auspicious occasion, I am sharing with you my look as Laxmmi. A character I am both excited and nervous about… but then life begins at the end of our comfort zone… isn’t it? #LaxmmiBomb."

Akshay was last seen in the romantic comedy Good Newwz, alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani. In the future, he will be seen in movies like Sooryavanshi, Bachchan Pandey and Prithviraj.
