Ahead of the trailer release, Akshay Kumar unveiled the new poster for Raksha Bandhan. In the poster, the actor has introduced his four on-screen sisters, with whom he shares a great bond in the film. Akshay has donned a simpleton look, wearing a peach shirt and donning a thin moustache. The roles of his onscreen siblings are played by Sahejmeen Kaur, Deepika Khanna, Sadia Khateeb, and Smrithi Srikanth.
While sharing the poster, Akshay captioned it as "It’s a story of love, joy, family and the unbreakable bond that binds them. Come be a part of this grand celebration of life."
Himanshu Sharma, a frequent writer for filmmaker Aanand L. Rai, penned the story for Raksha Bandhan, and Kanika Dhillon co-authored the script. The film, which revolves around a brother-sister relationship, was officially revealed on August 3, 2020, to commemorate Raksha Bandhan. Raksha Bandhan is the quickest film Akshay Kumar has signed in his career, and he dedicated the film to his sister Alka Hiranandani. Rai, Hiranandani, and Zee Studios are all involved in the production of the film.
The male protagonist will be played by Akshay Kumar, who previously worked with Rai on Atrangi Re (2021). Kumar announced Bhumi Pednekar as the female lead on June 9, 2021. The film's whole cast, which includes Sahejmeen Kaur, Deepika Khanna, Sadia Khateeb, and Smrithi Srikanth, was confirmed on June 21, the day the filming began.
The film was set for a worldwide cinema release on November 5, 2021, to coincide with Diwali, but it has been postponed owing to the COVID-19 epidemic, which has caused delays in pre-production and other crucial work. The film will be released in theatres on August 11, 2022.
The film marks the second outing of Akshay and Bhumi on the big screen after Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
