Days after his next film Raksha Bandhan received a rare U grade, actor Akshay Kumar informed fans that they may see his films without reservation. Raksha Bandhan, directed by Aanand L Rai, will be released on August 11. While Akshay wants to work on a variety of subjects, he wants to ensure that his films are loved by family audiences. “I want to try my hand at other forms of material,” Akshay told PTI. I don’t want to conjure up any mental images. But one thing is certain: the films I make must be family-friendly.” The actor has stated unequivocally that he will not be connected with ghinoni (disgusting) flicks.

“I don’t want to produce a nasty (ghinoni) film. Whether it’s a psycho-thriller or a social drama, families should watch it without reservation. I believe in developing films that would delight the family audience while keeping the message and commercial factors in mind “He said.

The Central Board of Film Certification granted Akshay’s film Raksha Bandhan a U certificate earlier this week. “This is more of a personal achievement for me,” director Aanand L Rai told Hindustan Times. I started working on a clean family entertainment. That was certainly my thinking when creating Tanu Weds Manu (2011) and Tanu Weds Manu Returns (2015). However, I obtained a U/A certificate for them. It scarcely matters, but it’s an ethical win for me.”

Raksha Bandhan will also star Bhumi Pednekar in addition to Akshay. Himanshu Sharma and Kanika Dhillon wrote Raksha Bandhan. Color Yellow Productions, Zee Studios, Alka Hiranandani, and Cape Of Good Films are behind it.”
