He stated that it is just because he felt humiliated and also was unaware of about the poster. Let us tell you that Akshay Kumar is making a remake of Raghava Lawrence's Tamil blockbuster film Muni 2: Kanchana and original director-actor Raghava Lawrence was supposed to direct the Hindi version also.

Now finally, the reason why Raghava has made to exit has come out and it is being told that Akshay Kumar's interference in the film-making has made Raghava came out of the project. Bollywood Hungama quoted a source saying, “He knew this ghost film will be ghost-directed. Nowadays superstars like Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar are very active on the sets. Raghava must have been warned. He belongs to the old school of filmmaking where the director is King on the sets. Rather than bear with the intervention, Raghava has gracefully walked out,”
Well, maybe it was new for Raghava Lawrence but in Bollywood, it's not new at all. Since the start, it has been superstars like Amitabh Bachchan and Rajesh Khanna who have always given inputs in the film. Currently, we have seen Aamir Khan also being accused of entering a filmmaker's space. Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar has not made any official statement on the whole controversy yet.
