Akshay Kumar and Aanand L Rai team up for Raksha Bandhan
Akshay Kumar has signed a new film with director Aanand L Rai. It has been titled as ‘Raksha Bandhan’ and the formal announcement was made just a while back through social medias. A colourful first look poster featuring Akshay and four other girls has been shared by the makers. Himanshu Sharma, Rai’s frequent collaborator, is scripting the film. It is produced by Colour Yellow Production in association with Cape of Good Films. Shoot will begin early next year and it has been scheduled as a November 2021 release.
‘Raksha Bandhan’ is Akshay’s second film with director Rai. The duo is working together in another film titled ‘Atrangi Re’ that also has Tamil star Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan in the lead roles. Before the Covid-19 pandemic struck, Dhanush and Sara had shot for a few portions in Varanasi. The second schedule will commence from October in Madurai. Following this, the team will continue shooting in Delhi and Mumbai where Akshay Kumar will be joining for a month.
Akshay meanwhile has two films gearing up for release — ‘Laxxmi Bomb’ and ‘Sooryavanshi’. ‘Prithviraj’, ‘Bachchan Pandey’ and ‘Bell Bottom’ are some of his other announced projects.
