Soon after he shared the video, fans were seen dropping lovely comments. One of the fans wrote, “Excited for this as I was excited for other film of yours. Waiting for the trailer and posters. #RakshaBandhan ♥️.” Another fan commented, “Anand L Rai makes a wholesome family entertainer. He is man to trust and look upto. Expecting it to be a good family entertainer with loads emotions, drama and soulful music.”
On the same day, Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan‘s much-awaited film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha‘ will also hit the theatres. The film was earlier supposed to release in April. The makers postponed the film to avoid clashing with Yash starrer ‘KGF: Chapter 2’. It will be interesting to see how both the films perform at the box office since they will enjoy the Independence Day weekend.
Meanwhile, Akshay wrapped up the shooting of the film in October last year. He shared a picture with the director and wrote, “Here’s to all I and @aanandlrai did throughout the shoot of #RakshaBandhan – laugh like there’s no tomorrow! Ironically, as we wrapped the film last night, there was a bittersweet tinge of sadness. Off to the next. New day, new roller coaster.”
The film also stars Bhumi Pednekar in an important role.
