Earlier this year, Bhumi Pednekar joined the cast of Raksha Bandhan. Raksha Bandhan will mark Akshay Kumar’s third collaboration with Bhumi Pednekar after Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Durgamati (backed by Akshay Kumar). Bhumi announced her association with the project by sharing a picture on Instagram and she wrote: “A very special film and a very special reunion. Am supremely excited to be collaborating again with two of my favourite creative powerhouses and humans. Am full of gratitude to be a part of this special, heart-touching story Raksha Bandhan.”
The film, which will be directed by Aanand L Rai and will be written by Himanshu Sharma, was announced on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan last year. This will be Akshay Kumar’s second project with Aanand L Rai after Atrangi Re, which stars Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush.
