The trailer for Laxmmi Bomb, starring Akshay Kumar in the lead role, was released on Friday and the Hindi remake of the Tamil comedy-horror Kanchana got everyone talking online.
Akshay Kumar, who has transformed himself into a saree-clad ghost for the upcoming film, created a buzz online with his look when the poster was released and the buzz only got amplified. Directed by Raghava Lawrence, the film is all set to be released virtually on November 9 on Disney+ Hotstar, keeping fans entertained during Diwali period.
As the trailer reminded us of old Hindi movies where the transgender community was represented in a stereotypical way, it is evident that Kumar is trying to balance the story with some situational comedy and songs. Within just a few hours of its release, it started trending on YouTube, garnering over 5 million views.
Beyond the transformation, the catchy dialogues intrigued meme-makers on Twitter and soon hilarious memes inundated the micro-blogging site. Check out some of memes inspired by the trailer here:
