After ‘Atrangi Re’, actor Akshay Kumar’s second directorial venture ‘Raksha Bandhan’, directed by Aanand L Rai, is all set to release on August 11. The team of the film came face-to-face with the media on the pretext of releasing the song ‘Tere Saath Hoon Main’ from the film in Mumbai on Wednesday. The lyrics of the film have been penned by Irshad Kamil, the stipulated lyricist of Anand’s films, but this time the music is by Himesh Reshammiya. Akshay Kumar says, ‘Working in Rakshabandhan has been a great experience, we have done a great job in the film. Whether the film will work or not, only God is the public. It is worth noting that Akshay Kumar’s two recently released films ‘Bachchan Pandey’ and ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ have been flops and his last film ‘Atrangi Re’ directed by Aanand L Rai had to be released directly on OTT due to lack of distributors.
no one was given a chance to make a brother
Akshay Kumar has become the brother of four sisters in the film ‘Rakshabandhan’. When asked if she has made anyone sister in the industry? Akshay Kumar said with his familiar smile, ‘I never gave anyone a chance to make my brother.’ Referring to the anecdote spent with his sister in childhood, Akshay Kumar said, ‘My younger sister used to have a lot of fun, then I used to get scolded and when I used to do mischief, I used to get scolded. When the sister used to do mischief and complain about her, the family members used to say that she is small. Even when Mama used to do mischief, I used to get scolded. The family members used to say that he is big. I still do not understand the difference between small and big. Well I think this is the story of every household. That’s where life has its fun. By the way, only the boys should be scolded because they do all the scandals.
If the film will run, I will do the third film.
Aanand L Rai usually directs one film in two years, but with Akshay Kumar, he made two films in a year. On this occasion, Aanand L Rai said in gestures that he is also preparing for the third film with Akshay Kumar. On this, Akshay said with aplomb, ‘If this film goes well, he will also do a third film with Aanand L Rai.’ He made this remark jokingly, but it is clear from this that for Akshay Kumar’s trust in Aanand L Rai, how important it is for the film ‘Raksha Bandhan’ to run at the box office.
Himesh Reshammiya’s new accompaniment
Music composer Himesh Reshammiya, who has composed music for Akshay Kumar’s films like “Phir Hera Pheri”, “Humko Deewana Kar Gaye”, “Namaste London” and “Khiladi 786”, has teamed up with Aanand L Rai this time. He says, ‘There is a lot of pressure while giving music for Akshay Kumar’s films. If the next film doesn’t give better music than the previous film and if the song becomes a dabba then it will be very messy for me. In the middle, Akshay Kumar while praising Himesh Reshammiya said, ‘I often go to Himesh Reshammiya’s studio and I have seen how he composes any song in ten minutes.’
‘Sister’ Tomorrow can be my heroine too
The story of Dara Singh is very famous in the case of a hero considering a heroine as his sister in the Hindi film world that once he accepted Mumtaz as his sister, he did not work with her in any film again. Akshay Kumar has four sisters in Rakshabandhan. When Akshay Kumar was asked that if the sisters of these films come as their heroine in a film, will they work? Akshay Kumar said, ‘This is a film, it is not that if I become a wife in the film, she will be my wife forever. The characters we play in films are never emotional about that character and relationship. If I get a chance with these sisters in a film in which she will be my heroine, then why will I not work.
