Raksha Bandhan trailer: Akshay Kumar’s family drama looks quite dated.
The trailer of Raksha Bandhan, a family drama headlined by Akshay Kumar, has been released. Helmed by Aanand L Rai and written by Himanshu Sharma and Kanika Dhillon, the film also stars Bhumi Pednekar, Sadia Khateeb, Sahejmeen Kaur, Deepika Khanna and Smrithi Srikanth.
The trailer shows Akshay as some version of Maryada Purushottam Ram (he is referred to as such in the trailer), who is ready to sell even his kidneys to marry off his four sisters, played by Sadia, Sahejmeen, Deepika and Smrithi. And only while he carries out his ‘brotherly duties’ will he marry his childhood sweetheart, played by Bhumi.
Talking about Raksha Bandhan, Akshay said in a statement, “Hardly ever in life does one come across a story that touches your heart so deeply and so instantly! It will make you laugh, and it will make you cry. And it will make us realise how blessed are those who have sisters. It makes me happiest that my sister Alka is presenting and producing this film along with ace director Aanand L Rai. Can’t thank him enough for bringing me one of the most special films of my life.”
