By dropping a heartwarming teaser of his upcoming film, Akshay Kumar on Thursday announced the release date of his film Raksha Bandhan as August 11. The actor who was recently seen in Manushi Chhillar co-starrer historical drama Samrat Prithviraj is set to be back with the Anand L Rai film.
The Atrangi Re star took to Instagram and posted a teaser of Raksha Bandhan along with the release date of the film.

Another fan commented, “Anand L Rai makes a wholesome family entertainer. He is man to trust and look upto. Expecting it to be a good family entertainer with loads emotions, drama and soulful music."
Interestingly, the Akshay Kumar film will be locking horns with Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer’s much-anticipated film Laal Singh Chadda. The movie was earlier supposed to release in April. The makers postponed the film to avoid clashing with Yash starrer ‘KGF: Chapter 2’. It will be intriguing to see how both the films perform at the box office since they will enjoy the Independence Day weekend.
It is to be noted that earlier, Akshay Kumar shifted Bachchan Pandey’s release date to avoid a clash with Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha, which was set to release on Christmas.

It will be intriguing to see which of the films rakes in the moolah at the box office, or a change in the release date will take place again.
Meanwhile, Akshay wrapped up the shooting of the film in October last year. He shared a picture with the director and wrote, “Here’s to all I and @aanandlrai did throughout the shoot of #RakshaBandhan - laugh like there’s no tomorrow! Ironically, as we wrapped the film last night, there was a bittersweet tinge of sadness. Off to the next. New day, new roller coaster."
