Filmmaker-actor Raghava Lawrence stepped down as the director of Akshay Kumar's upcoming horror-comedy Laxmmi Bomb, a day after the first look poster of the film was released, allegedly without informing him. All this went down on May 20-21.

In a post issued today by Lawrence on Saturday evening, he announced that he is back on board the film as the director and that he was really happy to be part of the project again. In the note he also thanked Kumar and film's producer Shabinaa Khan for "sorting all issues" and "giving him respect."
