Aanand L Rai’s Raksha Bandhan is gearing up to be a huge blockbuster. With the movie’s music album already being a fan favourite, the trailer building great anticipation amongst the audience and of course, it being an Akshay Kumar film, the movie has already ticked off the golden trifecta. Recently we got a chance to Interview the multi-genre superstar Akshay Kumar himself and here’s what he had to say.
When asked about his upcoming role Akshay gushes “I had a lot of fun playing my role in Raksha Bandhan. It is a character that belongs to a middle class family embroiled in everyday middle class problems trying to make ends meet and having the responsibility of getting his four sisters married.”
When asked how his role and the movie in general is unique that the ones he’s done before, he says, “ I’ve essayed many roles in my career, strangely I haven’t worked in a film which focuses on this special brother-sister bond, something which is so relatable and universal. Actually I don’t think we have many such films in our industry. So in that sense, I got to try something new.”
