Akshay Kumar speaks on his movie Raksha Bandhan’s clash with Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha- “It should be seen as two major films coming together”

“It’s not about clash but 2 movies coming together” says Akshya Kumar.

Since the teaser for Akshay Kumar’s next film Raksha Bandhan was revealed, all eyes have been on him. Aanand L Rai is directing the film, and Akshay will be seen alongside Bhumi Pednekar. Raksha Bandhan is the story of a brother who accepts the burden of marrying all four of his sisters before him. The trailer has gotten a lot of positive feedback, and the entire team is here in Delhi for the trailer launch. When Akshay revealed the film’s release date, the fact that it clashed with the Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha attracted everyone’s attention. When two major films clash, it’s always a big issue.

“It’s not a clash, it’s about two major movies coming together,” Akshay Kumar said today when questioned about his film Raksha Bandhan clashing with Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha. It’s a significant occasion. Due to Covid, there has been a delay, and clashes are to be expected. I won’t say we’re at odds; we’re just trying to get our movies in front of as many people as possible. I’m hoping both films do well at the box office.” “Shooting here was like being at home,” Akshay stated of the Delhi location for this film. I ate a lot of food, and filming with Aanand L Rai was like going on a picnic.”

Raksha Bandhan is Akshay’s second collaboration with Aanand L Rai, following the release of Atrangi Re in 2021, which also starred Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush. In addition, Akshay will reunite with Bhumi for the first time since their 2017 film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. Raksha Bandhan is set to release on August 11 and will compete with Aamir Khan and Kareen Kapoor Khan’s highly awaited film Laal Singh Chaddha at the box office.
