In the motion poster, the audience can also hear the teaser of the song ‘Tere sath hun main’ from ‘Raksha Bandhan’.

This is the second time Akshay Kumar will be working with director Anand L Rai after ‘Atrangi Re’. The film also stars Abhinay Raj Singh, Sahejmeen Kaur, Deepika Khanna, Sadia Khateeb and Smrithi Srikanth in prominent roles.

The point to be noted here is that Akshay Kumar will be clashing with ‘Mr. Perfectionist’ Aamir Khan at the box office and the fans are going to experience the biggest Bollywood clash of the year.

Aamir Khan recently released the trailer of his film ‘Laal Singh Chadha’ at the IPL 2022 Finals, and the trailer gathered a lot of appreciation from the audience. The film will be hitting the theatres on August 11, 2022. The film also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead role opposite Aamir Khan and south actor Naga Chaitanya in a special cameo.

‘Raksha Bandhan’ is going to be Akshay Kumar’s third release in the year 2022 after Bachchhan Paandey and Samrat Prithviraj, whereas Aamir Khan’s last film was ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ which was released in 2018 and after four years, the actor is coming back on the big screen.

Apart from ‘Raksha Bandhan’ and ‘Laal Singh Chadha, south actor Samantha Prabhu’s Pan-India film ‘Yashoda’ is also slated to release on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan and Independence Day.

Earlier, the highly anticipated trailer of the Aamir Khan starrer ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ has been unveiled on Sunday evening and it takes viewers on a joyride of emotions.

The almost 3-minute-long trailer gives a glimpse into the fascinating and innocent world of Laal Singh Chaddha, the film’s protagonist. His slow-witted approach and childlike optimism are the driving force of the movie. In the trailer, Aamir’s calming voiceover and his eyes-wide-open look give flashbacks to his mannerisms from Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘PK’.

It shows multiple picturesque locations, exhibiting the Indian heritage in its tranquil form. Aamir’s cute chemistry with Kareena is great and Mona Singh also looks seamless in the role of the protagonist’s mother.

Aamir and Advait Chandan have reunited for ‘Laal Singh Chadha’ following their collab in ‘Secret Superstar’. Produced by Aamir Khan Productions, Kiran Rao, and Viacom18 Studios, the film also stars Chaitanya Akkineni and will release on August 11, 2022.

Meanwhile, Bollywood actor Bhumi Pednekar who will again collaborate with superstar Akshay Kumar for their upcoming flix ‘Raksha Bandhan’, is quite eager for the release of the movie and she expressed her excitement for the same, earlier yesterday, on Wednesday, on her social media account.

The ‘Badhaai Do’ actor took it to her Instagram handle, and in the stories section of Instagram dropped a song tagging Akshay Kumar wherein, she wrote, “@akshaykumar sir TEPK was (a heart emoticon)…And now waiting for #RakshaBandhan :)”

Akshay Kumar, on the other hand, replied to this and said, “Wait ends soon @bhumipednekar….see you in a few days…#Rakshabandhan”

‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ which was Bhumi’s first collab with Akshay in the year 2017, is a satirical comedy in favour of government programmes in India to improve sanitation, with a focus on the elimination of open defecation, particularly in rural regions was indeed a blockbuster movie.
