Lakshya recently opened up about filming the action scenes in his recent thriller Kill. He said that of the 46 killings shown in the film, each one was designed separately. Directed by Nikhil Nagesh Bhat, the film also stars Raghav Juyal and Tanya Maniktala in pivotal roles.

Speaking about it in an interview with IMDb for the segment, On The Scene, Lakshya opened up on the challenges faced while shooting. He said, “There was a scene with the actor Abhishek Chauhan, who plays Viresh. He is a brilliant actor and a good friend of mine. I had to physically hurt him in the scene, and it was very challenging for me. It felt strange to harm a friend, even in a fictional context. Additionally, finding the rhythm of my character was tough. It took me a month or two, and listening to specific music, like 'Mozart: D minor', helped me capture the character's tempo."

He also reflected on designing the action scenes. “There are over 46 killings in the film. Every killing is different. Every killing is unique. The bad guys have a gang of over 40 men. And all 40 men are killed in a unique way, with a new weapon each time,” he said.

He added, “The lady who did our prosthetics, Zuby Johal she was so detailed about it that she wanted to know about the depth of the wound, how deep is the wound. If somebody has punched you with a certain force, so a wound of a certain depth will be formed. There is detailing on such a thing, they have specially worked on that."

Released on July 5, Kill is produced under Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and Guneet Monga's Sikhya Entertainment. It follows the story of Indian Army commando Amrit (Lakshya) who finds his love in Tulika (Maniktala). But things go awry when the lovers find themselves trapped in a train taken over by Fani (Juyal) and his gang, who begin to mercilessly kill the passengers.
