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!” 

The producer-director who seems to be on a roll with his upcoming projects says, “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 B
