Raksha Bandhan, starring Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar, is one of the most anticipated films of the year. The official trailer was released by the team on social media on Tuesday.
Akshay took to Twitter to say: “Jahan parivaar ka pyaar hota hai, wahan har rukaavat ka samadhaan bhi hota hai! #RakshaBandhanTrailer is out, watch now. #ReturnToFeelings #RakshaBandhan11August.”
Akshay Kumar’s character is dating Bhumi Pednekar, but they can only get married after Akshay’s three sisters get married. His character works two jobs to marry his sisters and provide them with the life they deserve. The film also deals with the issue of dowry in the society they live in. It shows a picture of a family (mostly brothers) overcoming personal and financial obstacles to achieve their goals.
Akshay Kumar shared these posters from the film before the trailer was released, writing: “Being together is knowing each other’s secrets, joy, happiness and hearts. Together is life. And life is life. If you don’t have a family, what’s better? Come join this beautiful family. We are waiting for you.”
Aanand L Rai is directing the film, which also stars Bhumi Pednekar. This is Akshay Kumar’s second collaboration with the director, following the 2021 film Atrangi Re, which also stars Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan. After Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, this is the second project of Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar.
