Laxmmi Bomb: After Tanishq Ad, Now Akshay Kumar’s Film Is Accused of Promoting ‘Love Jihad’ (View Tweets)

The controversial Tanishq ad had left the social media divided over the idea of communal harmony shown in the promo. Certain (bigoted) sections of Twitterati accused the ad of promoting ‘love jihad’ by showing a Hindu girl already married to a Muslim boy. Which isn’t true, as the ad was more about communal harmony. Now it looks like even Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb is facing the same heat, as some of the Tweeple are accusing it of promoting love jihad and trending #BoycottLaxmmiBomb. Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb Trailer Records 70 Million Views In 24 Hours; Becomes The Most Watched Trailer In India.

What got their goat is that Akshay Kumar’s character is named Asif, which is a Muslim-sounding name, who is married to Kiara Advani’s character. While I didn’t catch her name in the trailer. some Twitter users say that her name is Priya, which makes the marriage of that of inter-faith, which for them, means ‘love jihad’. Some are also wondering that while Akshay’s character’s name was changed from Raghav (in the original Tamil film Kanchana, played by directed Raghavendra Lawrence) to Asif in the remake.

Watch the Trailer of Laxmmi Bomb below:

That’s it, just that Akshay’s name was Asif triggered the Hindu sentiments of some of the trolls who began to slam the film on Twitter. Some also have issue with the film named Laxmmi Bomb, which they think, insults Goddess Laxmi. Apparently, they are fine with crackers that are named so, which inspired the title. For the uninitiated, Laxmmi in the movie is the name of the spirit that gets hold of Akshay’s character, hence the movie name.

Akshay Kumar’s name has already been dragged in the Sushant Singh Rajput controversy by the trolls, though there has been no established connection anywhere.

Gauahar Khan, who was a Toofani Senior in season 14 of Bigg Boss, says she is not affected by the abuses that housemate Pavitra Punia hurled at her in a recent episode of the controversial reality TV show. “I used to find Pavitra strong but she showed her true colours. I am happy that she revealed her real side. I am not hurt. Her abuses did not bother me at all. Thank God, she used the word ‘laal pari’. I will take it as a compliment. The way she abused me depicted her personality. I really can’t comment on it,” Gauahar told IANS. Bigg Boss 14 Survival Tips: From Gauahar Khan to Kamya Punjabi, Ex-Contestants Share Secrets to Last in the House
