Akshay Kumar’s ‘Raksha Bandhan’ to stream on OTT minimum 8 weeks after release


Akshay Kumar’s last release ‘Samraj Prithviraj’ which released in cinemas on June 3, 2022. The movie received a lukewarm response at the box office and reportedly will release on OTT within four weeks of its release.

Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar is all geared up for his next release, ‘Raksha Bandhan’. Akshay has already wrapped up filming for the movie and it is all set to hit the screen on August 11, 2022.

Reportedly, the trailer of the movie will be launched at an event in Delhi, today, June 21. The streaming rights of this movie have been acquired by ZEE5 and as per reports the movie will stream on the ZEE’s digital platform minimum eight weeks after its theatrical release.

The movie is said to be a heartwarming wholesome family entertainer and it stars Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pedhnekar in lead roles. This will be the second time that the two stars are working together, after ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’.

The movie also features Seema Pahwa, Neeraj Sood, Abhilash Thapliyal, Sadia Khateeb, Smrithi Srikanth, Deepika Khanna, and Sahejmeen Kaur.

The movie is said to be an emotional roller coaster that will showcase the love and bond shared by siblings.

The movie has been written by Kanika Dhillon and Himanshu Sharma and directed by Aanand L Rai. The movie has been co-produced by Alka Hiranandani, Aanand L Rai and ZEE Studios. The movie has been presented by ZEE Studios, Color Yellow and Cape of Good Films and will release on August 11, 2022.

‘Raksha Bandhan’ faces a big clash at the box office as Aamir Khan’s most awaited ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ also releases on the same day. As per sources, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ too will follow the same pattern as ‘Raksha Bandhan’ for OTT release and should premiere on the digital platform eight weeks after its theatrical release.
