Raksha Bandhan

Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film Raksha Bandhan is all set to hit the theatres. A tale revolving around the beautiful bond of brothers and sisters, starring Bhumi Pednekar in pivotal role is receiving massive backlash on social media, owing to writer Kanika Dhillon‘s purportedly “Hinduphobic” tweets that drew online hate for the movie.

Akshay has finally reacted to the same and he feels that India is a ‘free country’ and one can be allowed to do or say what they want. Akshay spoke out about people who wanted to ban Raksha Bandhan during the film’s promotion in Kolkata.

Akshay said, “As I just said this, it is a free country, everyone can do what they want. But this all (Raksha Bandhan and Laal Singh Chaddha) helps the economy of India. We are all on the verge of becoming the biggest and the greatest country. I would request them (trolls) and you (media), don’t get into it.”

Akshay has been promoting the film in full swing with the star cast. Sharing the excitement of the same he had written, “Team #RakshaBandhan off to Kolkata, then Lucknow aur phir jayenge Dilli (then we will be in Delhi). Honestly filmmaking is a cakewalk, par promotions bache ki jaan le lete hai (promotions are the toughest part)”
