Actor-filmmaker Raghava Lawrence has said that he would reconsider his decision to not direct the upcoming Akshay Kumar-starrer horror-comedy Laxmmi Bomb if the makers give him the respect he deserves.

A week after Lawrence walked out of the project citing lack of respect, he posted a statement on Twitter on Sunday, saying, "I had tweeted about stepping out of Laxmmi Bomb a few days back. Post my tweet, both Akshay Kumar sir's fans and my fans have been requesting me to do this film. I'm overwhelmed with their genuine love. But trust me, I'm equally upset for the past one week as you are."

He said he was very "thrilled" to do this film as he waited a long time for this opportunity, adding that the makers are meeting him and he would think about directing the project if he's assured respect. "The producers are coming to Chennai to meet me. It's completely in their hands now. If I am given proper self-respect for the job, then I'll think about it. Let's see after the meeting. Wanted to share this message to all fans who were genuinely concerned," he added.

In Laxmmi Bomb, Akshay plays a man who is possessed by the ghost of a transgender. The film also features Kiara Advani. 

Meanwhile, here's Raghava Lawrence's earlier tweet, announcing his quitting the project.
