But as per a report in DNA, a source revealed to the daily, “Akshay is familiar with Farhad’s work, having previously collaborated with him on Entertainment (2014), which he co-directed with his brother Sajid Samji. Also, Farhad was entrusted with directing the upcoming Diwali release, Housefull 4, after Sajid Khan was removed in the wake of the #MeToo Movement. Talks are on with Farhad and given his rapport with and high regard for Akshay, he’s likely to take up the responsibility of helming Laxmmi Bomb.” Well, we’ll have to wait for an official announcement to know who would finally be directing Laxmmi Bomb!
