Why Did Raghava Lawrence Quit Kanchana Remake?

Raghava Lawrence, the director cum actor announced proudly that he is directing the Hindi version of “ Kanchana,” which is titled as Laxmmi Bomb. The first look poster of the film was released a couple of days back. It is heard that the first look poster release was not informed to Lawrence and only after it was published on social media, he came to know that. Lawrence also stated that he had been disrespected. He had also stated that he hadn’t signed any documents regarding the rights of Kanchana and if he wishes he could cancel the project. But, as it is not professional ethics, he will not do that stated Lawrence. Lawrence also stated that he has huge respect for Akshay Kumar and hence he would speak with him regarding this and quit the project.

This is what Raghava Lawrence posted on his Twitter: “There is an old popular saying in Tamil which tells, “Don’t step into any house where there is no respect”. In this world, more than money and fame, self-respect is the most important attribute to a person’s character. So, I have decided to step out of the project, ‘Laxmmi Bomb’, the Hindi remake of Kanchana. I don’t want to mention the reason because there are multiple reasons, but one of them is that the first look poster of the film was released today without my knowledge and even without discussing anything with me. I was informed about this by a third person. It is very painful for a director to know about his movie’s first look release from others. I feel very disrespected and disappointed. As a creator, I am not satisfied with the poster design as well. This shouldn’t happen to any director. I can hold back my script because I haven’t signed any agreement regarding this film, but I won’t do it because it is not professional. I’m ready to give my script because I personally respect Akshay Kumar sir a lot. They can replace me with some other director according to their wish. Soon, I’m going to meet Akshay Kumar sir to give the script and step out of this project in a good way. All the very best to the entire team. I wish the movie a great success.”
