The film also features Bhumi Pednekar as the female lead.
Akshay Kumar has been juggling from one movie sets to another to keep up with his professional commitment. The actor was in London recently where he was shooting for Cinderella. Now, on Tuesday morning, Akshay announced that he has wrapped the shoot of Aanand L Rai's forthcoming directorial Raksha Bandhan. The film also features Bhumi Pednekar as the female lead and has been extensively shot in Mumbai and Delhi.
While announcing the wrap, Akshay took to his social media pages and shared a candid click with Aanand. He wrote, "Here’s to all I and @aanandlrai did throughout the shoot of #RakshaBandhan - laugh like there’s no tomorrow! Ironically, as we wrapped the film last night, there was a bittersweet tinge of sadness. Off to the next. New day, new roller coaster."
The final schedule took place in Delhi after the makers had erected a massive set in Mumbai.
Meanwhile, for Raksha Bandhan, Akshay had put on weight to look the part as a man from Delhi. The actor had revealed that he indulged in food prepared by his late mother to gain weight.
Akshay had said, "I quite enjoy the process of losing or gaining weight for a character because I can do it healthily. I have gained five kg in a natural process. And it also allowed me the rare indulgence of eating meri maa ke haath ka halwa. What a blessing!"
Soon after that, Akshay lost six kg to look leaner for his role in Rohit Shetty's Sooryavanshi in which he plays the role of a cop.
Meanwhile, Raksha Bandhan is penned by Himanshu Sharma and Kanika Dhillon. While Colour Yellow Productions, Zee Studios, Alka Hiranandani in association with Cape Of Good Films have produced the film.
Raksha Bandhan is slated to hit the big screens on August 11, 2022, which is the Independence Day weekend.
