Earlier, Tripathi took to Twitter and expressed her thoughts on the trailer.

Laxmi in a video said, “Dhamakedaar. Live life queen size. We live our life queen size. At this time everyone needs Lakshmi but this was a refreshing take. I want to thank Akshay Kumar and his entire team for making a beautiful film.”

Akshay quote-tweeted the same and wrote, “This means a lot Itna pyaar barsane ke liye thank you, from one Laxmmi to another Naam sach mein bahot khaas hai.”

The film is a horror-comedy and revolves around a man possessed by the ghost of a transgender person. It is a remake of the 2011 Tamil film 'Kanchana' and is directed by Raghava Lawrence, who also helmed the original.
