Akshay Kumar, along with the team of Aanand L Rai’s relationship drama Raksha Bandhan is on a promotional spree, visiting different cities across the country ahead of its release on the day of Raksha Bandhan festival. On Tuesday, Akshay, Aanand, Sadia Khateeb, Smrithi Srikanth, Sahejmeen Kaur and Deepika Khanna visited Kolkata on Monday. The team met the media at a press conference at a theatre in Kolkata. 

Raksha Bandhan has obtained a U certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification. Reacting to this, Akshay said, “It is a family drama made out of love. If you go out to watch the film with your family members, you will feel that your family came closer to you. This film is working like gum that sticks relationships together. There is nothing in the film that breaks any chord. I am very grateful to the censor board that found the nerve of the film correctly. They want the whole of Hindustan to watch the film.” 

Meanwhile, director Aanand L Rai said, “We are very attached. Wherever we are going we are going together. We had great fun making this film and I want to tell all our audience that if we had so much fun making the film, you will also enjoy watching it.”

Elaborating his bond with his reel sisters, Akshay said, “While filming, my four reel-life sisters, director and I spoke the most about food – what to eat, what should be the menu of the day, if we should opt for Punjabi, Mughlai or Sindhi food and so on. So that used to happen a lot. The common chord between the girls, the director and I is that we love to eat.”

Akshay also talked about his sister, Alka Bhatia. “Regarding my memories with my sister Alka, she has been there with me since my childhood. I was four years old when she took birth. Our lives are full of memories. We never stayed separated. We lived together all our lives. Even today, my sister stays in my building with us. Our bond is very strong. The fondest memory of my sister is from the day she was born. I was just four and my parents told me, ‘beta, ghar mein Devi aayi hai’. I am still walking holding the hands of that Devi. And I will keep walking.”
