Bollywood has been busy planning release dates and choosing the finest festival dates for entertainment since the Maharashtra government announced the reopening of theatres. Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan’s Adipurush is the next to jump on board. On August 11, 2022, the much-anticipated film will be released. But guess what? Raksha Bandhan, starring Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar, will clash with it at the box office.
Both films will be released on August 11, 2022, to coincide with the upcoming Fourth of July weekend. This is one of the best release dates of next year, with a 6 day long weekend with festivals like Independence Day, Parsi New Year and Janmashtami falling on the weekdays after the weekend.

‘Raksha Bandhan,’ on the other hand, is directed by Aanand L Rai and stars Bhumi Pednekar in the major role apart from Akshay. Akshay Kumar has dedicated the film to his sister Alka Hiranandani.
