Laxmii: Twinkle Khanna, Sidharth Shukla join Akshay’s campaign #AbHumariBaariHai

As Akshay Kumar’s upcoming horror-comedy drama titled Laxmii is all set for release on OTT platform Hotstar today, celebrities like Twinkle Khanna, Siddharth Shukla among others have extended their support to the campaign ##AbhumariBaariHai. The campaign has been started to support the third gender, a topic which is dealt with in the upcoming movie.

As part of Laxmii promotions, Kumar urged people to join him using the Ab Hamari Baari Hai filter on Instagram to celebrate humanity. The campaign is aimed at breaking stereotypes and extending support to third gender with the ‘Laal Bindi’(red vermillion dot on forehead) as symbol of equal love and respect.

Following which several celebrities from film industry joined the campaign and posted their pictures with #Abhumaribaarihai filter.

Kumar’s wife and actor Twinkle Khanna shared a picture in which she was spotted wearing a red bindi. Khanna was earlier called Twinkle Bomb by a troll in reference to the film’s old title Laxmmi Bomb. With the picture, she gave a befitting reply to the troll saying, you make a joke of god, god clearly likes a good joke and created you. Like a true blue bombshell, she will take up a new skin tone and bindi look this Diwali, she further wrote.

Bigg Boss 13 winner Sidharth Shukla also participated in the campaign. He hailed Kumar’s effort to support the third gender and posted a picture of himself wearing a large red vermillion dot on his forehead.
