Announced last year on the occasion of the Raksha Bandhan festival, the movie revolves around the brother-sister bond that is currently in the pre-production stage.
Akshay who has worked with Zee Studios earlier to deliver hits like Rustom, Kesari and Good Newwz, is looking forward to yet another successful collaboration. The actor shared, “Raksha Bandhan is a special film for all of us, rarely are such pure and simple films made. I am happy Zee is partnering with us on this one as I have always shared a good association with the entire team at Zee Studios”
It also marks Rai’s first association with the studio. The producer-director who seems to be on a roll with his upcoming projects says, “I am extremely excited about this collaboration. Zee Studios keeps delivering powerful and compelling stories and are well aware of the sentiments of the cine-goers from the heartland. Raksha Bandhan is a heartwarming story and I am confident that this association will make our journey ahead special. Looking forward to creating content together, that excites our audiences.”
Shariq Patel, CBO, Zee Studios expressed, “To be able to tell a story that is appealing, exhilarating and yet relatable is what we aim for and this film ticks all those boxes. We are pleased to collaborate with the megastar Akshay Kumar again after Good Newwz. This surely will be an exciting journey to look forward to.”
It’s a delight to collaborate on a film that celebrates the purest relationship!
