The film hit the shooting floors yesterday and we now hear that Amitabh Bachchan might also be a part of it. Scroll down to read all the details.
Big B Also A Part Of The Film

Laaxmi Bomb Hit The Shooting Floors Yesterday
Kiara Advani took to her Instagram page yesterday and shared this picture captioning it as, "First Day of #LAAXMIBOMB 💥 @shabskofficial @akshaykumar #raghavalawrence @tusshark89 and the journey has just begun 👻🔥."
How Laaxmi Bomb Will Be Different From Kanchana
A Mid-day report had earlier stated that unlike the original, Akshay's character in the Hindi remake will be that of a fearless man who does not believe in ghosts.
The Turning Point In The Story
Akshay's character will be possessed by the ghost at Kiara's house. A source earlier revealed, "Her character will play a crucial role in his exorcism. Finally, Akshay will be possessed by one ghost - that of the transgender, Laxmi - and not three ghosts as seen in the Tamil movie."
Apart from this film, Akshay will also be seen in Mission Mangal, Housefull 4, Good News and a film on Prithviraj Chauhan.
