"When we worked together on Good Newwz, I was a bit intimidated working with Akshay Kumar" - says Kiara Advani ahead of Laxmii release

You were launched by Akshay Kumar in the industry. Now, you are have done two films with him already. Tell us about your experience working with him now that you’re paired with him?
Life’s come a full circle, from being launched in the movies to being the leading actress in a film with Akshay Sir. There’s always so much to learn from him, from his work ethics to the energy as an actor that he brings to a scene.
When we worked together on Good Newwz, I was a bit intimidated working with sir, I wouldn’t speak as much. I would silently listen and observe him on set, the way he would improvise and add so much life to a scene always inspired me. By the time we started working on Laxmii, I had opened up, felt more confident and the journey has been amazing.

Kabir Singh, which was a South remake was a success, Laxmii too is a remake of a South film. Do you think Laxmii will have the same fate as Kabir Singh?
I can’t compare the two. Each film has its own destiny. Laxmi is a horror-comedy and also a family entertainer. I believe the film has its heart in the right place just like Kabir Singh did so I hope the magic happens again.

What made you say yes to this film - Laxmii?
There are some films which are so entertaining that you just want to be a part of it. That’s how I felt when I heard the narration of Laxmi. I liked the way my character ties the screenplay together. It’s a commercial film which I haven’t really done before it’s a new space for me as well and I’m really happy to be a part of this film.

Have you seen Kanchana?
I’ve seen scenes from Kanchana which Raghava Sir showed me on set while we were shooting for Laxmi. We were actually fortunate that Raghav sir who has directed and acted in the original has directed Laxmi because no one knows the film better than him and he brings magic to the film.

Laxmii is set to premiere on 9th Nov on Disney+ Hotstar VIP. Disney+ Hotstar presents, Laxmii, produced by Cape of Good Films, Tusshar Entertainment House and Shabinaa Entertainment.
