Akshay Kumar's Diwali release Laxmii has received record-breaking success but it has failed to impress the critics. As for mixed reactions, the actor addressed the issue and expressed his views. "I know a lot of critics don’t like my films, and I understand it. But my focus is on my audience. I am told it’s the biggest opening of my career. The film achieves something pivotal." He also thinks having a transgender protagonist normalizes and reinforces the rights of the LGBTQ community in cinema. "Be it with PadMan or Toilet: Ek Prem Katha or Mission Mangal, the idea is to do more than just entertain or deliver a box-office success. I want to make a difference,” he added.
