In the film, Arshad Warsi, Jisshu Sengupta, Mahi Gill and Karan Kapadia will be seen in important roles. Bhumi will be seen playing the same role in the film, which was played by Anushka Shetty in the original film. Anushka played the role of administrative officer in ‘Bhagmati’. ‘Bhagmati’ is a terrific horror and thriller film.
Movie name has been changed
After the uproar over the title of ‘Laxmii’, the makers are now following the steps. Therefore, the title has been changed as a precautionary measure before the release of ‘Durgamati’. The film was earlier titled ‘Durgavati’, which has now been changed to ‘Durgamati – The Myth’. The myth has also been added, so that there is no misconception of any kind.

Let us tell you that from the announcement of the film till the release of the information on Prime Video on 9 October, its title was ‘Durgavati’, but now it has been ‘Durgamati’. The reason for this has not been given, but it is believed that the makers may have done this to avoid any controversy, because there is also a historical character by the same name. At the same time, there is a similarity between ‘Durgamati’ and ‘Bhagmati’.
Akshay has changed the name of his film as well…
Earlier, Akshay had to change the title of his film ‘Laxmii’ after heavy opposition. The film was a remake of hit Tamil film ‘Muni 2- Kanchana’ and was earlier titled ‘Laxmii Bomb’, which was strongly opposed in social media. Some organizations also objected to the film, after which the film was titled ‘Laxmii’ before its release on Disney Plus Hotstar on 9 November. The bomb was dropped from the title.
