Aanand L Rai’s directorial Raksha Bandhan, starring Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar, is scheduled to release on 11 August, 2022.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh announced the film’s release date and wrote, “'RAKSHA BANDHAN' ON 11 AUG 2022... #RakshaBandhan #AkshayKumar #BhumiPednekar #IndependenceDay weekend."
In August, Akshay Kumar had shared BTS pictures from the sets of Raksha Bandhan announcing the wrap of their Mumbai schedule. He had written in the caption, “I’m already missing walking down these streets of Chandni Chowk. Even though it was a make-believe set…you made it look so real, take a bow @sumitbasu62. My wonderful co-star @bhumipednekar , thank you for providing the right balance with your splendid talent.”
“And @aanandlrai sir…what can I say about you, besides that you’re a wizard and today as we wrap up the Mumbai schedule of #RakshaBandhan, I know I’m leaving the set a better actor,” Akshay had added.
