Raksha Bandhan

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.”
