This is the first time that Akshay Kumar will be seen essaying a transgender in a film. Talking about his role, the actor had said, “In 30 years, this is the most mentally intensive role. Never experienced it before. Credit for it goes to Lawrence sir. He introduced me to a version of me which I didn’t know existed. It was different from my other characters. Iska bolna, chalna action reaction maine kabhi portray nahi kiya,” The actor had said at a virtual press conference, adding that “Laxmmi Bomb” has made him “more sensitive about gender equality”
