In this week's Bollywood Gupshup, among other stories, hear about the stir caused by the Akshay Kumar-starrer Laxmmi Bomb, the reworked version of Mika's 22-year-old hit which is in the soundtrack of an upcoming film, and a wax statue made to honour the memory of Sushant Singh Rajput.
The film Laxmmi Bomb is being released on November 9, which is Diwali weekend in India. It is scheduled for an over-the top OTT media service release.
But it has made a record well before its release - it's promo has reportedly become the most viewed motion poster, gathering over 21 million views within the first 24 hours.
Tweeting about the release of the film earlier, Akshay Kumar had said, “this Diwali, a sonic ‘bomb’ will also come”.
