The actor is currently on a promotional binge and hasn’t left any stone unturned to promote the movie. He is touring various states with his on-screen sisters to promote their movie. Bhumi Pednekar plays a crucial part in this movie as well.
A few hours ago, Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khannna, who watched the film prior to the theatrical release took to her social media handle and shared her review for the film.
Sharing a clip from the film which featured Akshay and Bhumi Pednekar, Khanna wrote, “Raksha Bandhan made me laugh in the first half and cry through the second. A movie about the India we all pretend doesn’t exist. A reality that we wish didn’t exist. We have changed terms, from ‘dowry’ to ‘gifts’ but in homes across social-economic strata, variations of the custom loom large. The wonderful Aanand Rai has skilfully built a world where siblings tease each other, support each other and ultimately triumph together. The challenge with altering mindsets is that these conversations circulate largely among the already-converted. It’s perhaps only cinema that has the power to burrow into the minds and hearts of people across the board. Raksha Bandhan may make you smile and crack up, but I dare you to leave the theatre dry-eyed.”
To be noted, this is Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar’s second collaboration after the film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
Raksha Bandhan helmed by Anand L Rai and produced by Zee Studios, Colour Yellow Productions, and Cape of Good Films is slated to clash with Aamir Khan’s highly-anticipated movie, Laal Singh Chaddha.
The film also features Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh, and Naga Chaitanya in pivotal roles and is touted to be an official remake of the Hollywood film Forrest Gump.
Apart from this, Akshay has a boat load of films in his kitty. He will be seen in Ram Setu, OMG 2, Selfiee, Capsule Gill and some other untitled projects.
