ZEE Studios has tied up with Colour Yellow Productions and Cape of Good films for the upcoming Akshay Kumar film ‘Raksha Bandhan’, helmed by Aanand L Rai.
Kumar has previously worked with ZEE Studios for ‘Rustom’, ‘Kesari’, and ‘Good Newwz’. Talking about the latest collaboration, Kumar said, “Raksha Bandhan is a special film for all of us, rarely are such pure and simple films made. I am happy Zee is partnering with us on this one as I have always shared a good association with the entire team at Zee Studios – hoping that this only takes the relationship a notch higher. Can’t wait to begin filming for this one!”
Rai added, “I am extremely excited about this collaboration. Zee Studios keeps delivering powerful and compelling stories and are well aware of the sentiments of the cine-goers from the heartland. Raksha Bandhan is a heartwarming story and I am confident that this association will make our journey ahead special. Akshay sir is very caring and collaborative as a person. I’m hoping to take those attributes from him and use them for his elder brother character in Raksha Bandhan. I couldn’t have asked for a better film than this for teaming up with him again after Atrangi Re. Looking forward to creating content together, that excites our audiences.”
Shariq Patel, CBO, ZEE Studios expressed, “To be able to tell a story that is appealing, exhilarating and yet relatable is what we aim for and this film ticks all those boxes. We are pleased to collaborate with the megastar Akshay Kumar again after Good Newwz. His discipline and charisma bring a different/unmatchable energy to the set. With Aanand L Rai helming the direction we are confident that the audience will love the film. This surely will be an exciting journey to look forward to.”
It's a delight to collaborate on a film that celebrates the purest relationship!
