Now brand new news has come in that media giant and production house ZEE Studios has joined the team of “Raksha Bandhan” as producers. The movie is also being co-produced by Colour Yellow Productions and Cape of Good Films.
The movie stars Akshay Kumar in the lead and tells the story of one of the most pure bonds out there. The movie will dive deep and tell and celebrate the relation of brothers and sisters.

Everyone on the team is thrilled to have them on board as Akshay Kumar has mentioned, this movie is indeed a really special movie not only for him but for everyone involved. He is happy he gets to work with ZEE Studios once again. Last year, while he announced the movie, he dedicated it to his sister Alka and also mentioned how this was the quickest he has signed for any movie.
While the movie is not the first collaboration between Akshay and ZEE Studios, it is definitely a first for director Aanand L. Rai. Also, this marks the second project for both Kumar and Rai, their first movie together is the upcoming “Atrangi Re”.
The movie which was announced last year, is in the early pre production stage. Also, with the ongoing pandemic there is definitely going to be delays here and there. The movie was earlier said to have set a release date for November 5th, 2021.
