Akshay Kumar had announced this Aanand L directorial film on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan last year.
As the name suggests, it’s based on the special bond between a brother and a sister. In his announcement, Akshay had mentioned that he signed the film immediately after reading its script. He also dedicated the film to his sister Alka Bhatia.
The film is written by Rai’s longtime collaborator and National Award-winning screenwriter Himanshu Sharma, known for ‘Zero’, ‘Raanjhanaa’ and the ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ franchise.
Now, the latest is that Bhumi Pednekar comes on board to join the cast of the film.
Akshay Kumar shared the news on his social media accounts with a candid picture of the actors with Rai and the caption, “When you are happy, it shows And indeed we are…to have Bhumi Pednekar onboard #RakshaBandhan”
Akshay and Bhumi have worked together in movies like Toilet Ek Prem Katha 2017 and Pednekar-starrer Durgamati, on which Kumar served as co-producer.
The film will be Kumar’s second collaboration with Rai, after ‘Atrangi Re’, which features Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan.
