Akshay Kumar is one of Bollywood’s most successful actors. The actor never fails to surprise his fans with back-to-back movie announcements. He had announced Raksha Bandhan a few months ago, and several videos and pictures from the sets were even out. Now fans have been ecstatic and eagerly anticipating the release date of the film.
However, it appears that the wait is going to end soon as Akshay revealed in an official statement on his Instagram handle that Raksha Bandhan will be released on August 11, 2022. It should be noted that Akshay will be competing with Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s Laal Singh Chaddha, which is set to release on the same day.
In Akshay Kumar’s post, we can see the Raksha Bandhan motion poster, which is extremely colorful and lively. In the video it is written, ‘return to feelings on the most auspicious day 11th august’. Akshay captioned the video, “Bringing you all a story of the purest form of bond that will remind you of yours! #RakshaBandhan releasing in cinemas on 11th August 2022. #ReturnToFeelings #RakshaBandhan11August.” Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, will also be released on the same day, and the box office clash will be interesting to watch.
