Within a day of its release, Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani’s film ‘Laxmii’ has broken all the records. It has even surpassed the most talked-about film ‘Dil Bechara’ starring late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Hard to believe? Well, that’s true. Despite receiving negative reviews from critics and a wide audience, Laxmii has become the biggest movie opening on the popular OTT platform. Let us tell you, that both Laxmii and Dil Bechara were premiered on Disney Plus Hotstar. In fact, Dil Bechara was made available for free as a tribute to the late actor.
The streaming platform itself has admitted on social media that Laxmii has broken the record of the biggest movie opening. The makers of Laxmii had earlier decided not to release the film digitally. However, seems like their decision to release on OTT turned fairly well for them. It is also reported that the big budget movie will have a theatrical release abroad.
Laxmii is directed by Raghava Lawrence. The film is the remake of the 2011 Tamil film Kanchana which was written, directed and produced by Raghava Lawrence. He even acted as the main lead in the film.
