Laxmmi, an upcoming Bollywood movie starring Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani, isreceiving renewed backlash for allegedly hurting Hindu sentiments. The film dropped the word Bomb from its title following social media outrage just a few days back. However, netizens have now expressed outrage over the movies new title as well as its alleged promotion of love jihad (a pejorative term used for inter-religious marriages/relationships between Muslim men and Hindu women) and are demanding a complete ban on its release on November 9.

Actor Tusshar Kapoor, who is venturing into production with Laxmii, said that the movies title was changed keeping in mind the feelings of everyone who had or didnt have any issue with the earlier title and to maintain peace and positivity. As per the movies trailer, released on October 9, 2020, the film revolves around an inter-faith couple Aasif and Priya.Twitter users have called out the movies makers for promoting love jihad. Additionally, netizens have attacked the makers on sacrilegious grounds for entitling a movie after Hindu Goddess Lakshmi and releasing the same on the occasion of Diwali. The widespread outrage has led #Ban_Laxmmi_Movie to trend on Twitter.

Tweeple are questioning the Censor Board for its silence on the issue as well. Moreover, they are highlighting the fact that Kanchana, the south Indian movie that Laxmmi is a remake of, had portrayed both main characters as Hindus.

One Twitter user went on to write that the movie has portrayed Hindus as violent creatures and denigrated Hindu Goddesses through cheap item numbers.

Notably, on October 17, the Hindu Janjagran Samiti (HJS) released a statement seeking a ban on Laxmms release for purposely encouraging love jihad.

Last month, an advertisement released by jewellery brand Tanishq came under fire for showing a Muslim mother-in-law celebrating her Hindu daughter-in-laws baby shower. Shortly after the outrage died down, a 21-year-old commerce student from Ballabhgarh, Haryana, was shot dead by a Muslim man called Tauseef for rejecting his marriage proposal. The incident only worsened the outrage over love-jihad which has refused to subside ever since.
