You know he has walked into a room somewhere near you when an army of bodyguards circle the area even before he arrives, and then, in comes the Raksha Bandhan actor-producer Akshay Kumar. Today’s short stopover at a plush hotel in New Delhi, saw Akshay in his humourous best. 

Dressed in a bohemian, baggy shirt in hues of white-and-blue, Akshay Kumar answered a few questions by the media with his director Aanand L Rai in attendance. 

When OTTPlay informed him about Aamir Khan’s sweet gesture of asking the audience to go watch Raksha Bandhan along with Laal Singh Chaddha—and how Aamir has praised the trailer of the movie as being “very nice”—Akshay smiled, exclusively telling us, “I think it’s good. Humari industry ke liye achha hai aur khoob chale (It is good for our industry, both the movies should do well and do exceedingly well).”

He then went on to add that this week has multiple holidays which should contribute to the box office numbers of his Raksha Bandhan and Aamir’s Laal Singh Chaddha. “It’s the holiday season (referring to the long weekend), and there are some three to four public holidays in one week. Toh dono movies khub chale (So, both the movies should do well). And next week, I think Liger is releasing?… ,” he added while talking to OTTPlay. 

Akshay Kumar, whose film Raksha Bandhan is releasing in theatres along with Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha on August 11, 2022, concluded his statement by saying that the industry needs more of “Aamir’s kindness”. 

“… Both the movies should do well. The industry needs this (referring to the kind gesture), and it needs that forever,” signed off the Khiladi.

While Aamir’s drama is the official remake of Tom Hanks’ Oscar-winning Forrest Gump, Akshay’s film tackles the social evil of dowry system in India told from the standpoint of a brother to four sisters.
