Akshay Kumar is among Bollywood’s most successful actors. After the underwhelming performance of Samrat Prithviraj, Akshay Kumar’s next film will be released soon. Khiladi Kumar is one such actor who usually shocks his fans by releasing two films in a row. A few months ago, the actor announced the premiere of his film Raksha Bandhan. At the same time, several videos and photographs have emerged from the film’s set.
After Today, Akshay Kumar made an official statement about the film’s release on his Instagram. Akshay took to Instagram to unveil the film’s motion teaser. It also showed a preview of a song from the film. Along with the motion teaser, he said, “Bringing you a narrative about the purest type of relationship that will remind you of your own! A#RakshaBandhanAwill be released in theatres on August 11, 2022.”
However, it should be noted that ‘Raksha Bandhan’ will compete with Aamir Khan-Kareena Kapoor Khan’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha,’ which will be released on the same day. ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ was originally scheduled to be released in April 2022, but the producers opted to push it back to avoid conflicting with Yash’s ‘KGF: Chapter 2’.
Speaking about ‘Raksha Bandhan,’ the film stars Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar in prominent parts. Abhinay Raj Singh, Sahejmeen Kaur, Deepika Khanna, Sadia Khateeb, and Smrithi Srikanth portray Kumar’s sisters.
The film was initially intended for a worldwide theatre release on Diwali, November 5, 2021, but it was postponed owing to the COVID epidemic.
‘Laal Singh Chaddha,’ on the other hand, is produced by Aamir Khan Productions, Kiran Rao, and Viacom18 Studios and stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh, and Chaitanya Akkineni. It is a remake of the highly acclaimed film ‘Forrest Gump’ starring Tom Hanks.
Advait Chandan, who directed the commercially successful and critically praised Aamir Khan-Kiran Rao film Secret Superstar’ in 2017, will direct ‘Laal Singh Chaddha.’
