Akshay Kumar is trying hard to align all the best omens for his most awaited horror-comedy ‘Laxmmi Bomb’, where he will be seen clad in a saree. From calling out to the universe by applying his lucky number 9 to keeping all the big events of his film falling on 9. Teaser was launched on October 9 and the film is all set for November 9 release. Akshay will now release the first song from the film, ‘Burj Khalifa’ on October 18 which is again the plus of two 9s.

As Akshay wants to make this movie a big success of his career, he even suggested Fox Star Studio, which has bankrolled the movie, to grand launch the song ‘Burj Khalifa’ at the world’s tallest building ‘Burj Khalifa’, Dubai, which was reportedly turned down by the producers.

According to a source, “Akshay Kumar suggested to the producers, Fox Star Studios, that they should release the ‘Burj Khalifa’ song at Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE. He believed that it’ll add to the film’s buzz. Also, viewers have seen film promotions happening online since the beginning of the lockdown. Hence, even they would have lapped up the idea. Moreover, Dubai is a safe place with limited Coronavirus cases. Akshay, who recently commenced and even finished a shoot in the pandemic in United Kingdom, is aware of the precautions to be taken to pull off such an event without anyone falling ill. Hence, he came up with a detailed plan for this promotional activity, replete with safety measures.”

The source further added, “The Fox Star Studios team liked the idea but found it commercially unviable. They realized that flying Akshay Kumar, Kiara Advani and others in a private jet to Dubai, accommodating them in a luxurious hotel, booking the Burj Khalifa for the promotions, taking care of safety and sanitization etc would cost somewhere around Rs. 65-70 lakhs. The management didn’t feel the need to spend so much at a time when the financial condition of the industry is not upto the mark. Hence, they politely declined the idea. Akshay Kumar understood their point of view and agreed.”

Meanwhile, the song from the highly anticipated movie ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ titled as ‘Burj Khalifa’, is all set to be released tomorrow. The touted party number is featuring Akshay and Kiara. The excitement for the song release could be imagined by twitterati reaction who made #BurjKhalifa one of the top trends on Twitter, a day before its premier.

Written and directed by Raghava Lawrence, ‘Laxmmi Bomb’ is the remake of the Tamil movie ‘Muni 2: Kanchana’ and it also marks Lawrence Hindi directorial debut. The hilarious spooky adventure will be released in the pre-Diwali phase on November 9, 2020 on Disney Plus Hotstar.
