When Varun Dhawan asked Akshay Kumar, whose film Laxmmi Bomb will release online, what the fans can expect right now and if films' online release can match up to the experience of watching first day first shows, the actor said, "For now they should accept it and the best part is that the show time will be their own, food can be of their choice. Ab kya bachche ki jaan loge." Akshay Kumar also described the experience of wearing a saree in Laxmmi Bomb - his character is transgender - as "graceful."
