Akshay Kumar who dotes on his sister Alka, is delighted to play a loving protective brother to four sisters in Aanand L Rai’s Raksha Bandhan in Raksha Bandhan.
One of his favourite films in the past was ace-director Bapu’s Pyari Behna in which Mithun Chakraborty played an adoring brother to Tanve Azmi.
Now Akshay gets to do his ‘Pyari Behna’.
Says the star –actor, “I had a lot of fun playing my role in Raksha Bandhan. It is a character that belongs to a middle class family embroiled in everyday middle class problems trying to make ends meet and having the responsibility of getting his four sisters married.”
Akshay’s specially kicked about playing Bade Bhaiyya for the first time. “ I’ve essayed many roles in my career, strangely I haven’t worked in a film which focuses on this special brother-sister bond, something which is so relatable and universal. Actually I don’t think we have many such films in our industry. So in that sense, I got to try something new.”
