Post the resounding success of Atrangi Re, filmmaker Aanand L Rai brings us Raksha Bandhan, featuring superstar Akshay Kumar in the lead. The film is a family drama, depicting sibling love between a close knit family.

The makers of the film today released the first song from their music album, Tere Saath Hoon Mein, amidst much fanfare.

Present at the event were cast and crew led by actor Akshay Kumar, filmmaker Aanand L Rai, music director Himesh Reshammiya and the rest of star-cast of the film including Sahejmeen Kaur, Deepika Khanna, Sadia Khateeb and Smrithi Srikanth.

Offering a beautiful tribute to the brother-sister relationship, Tere Saath Hoon Mein celebrates the promise of unrelenting support, uncompromising companionship and unconditional love between siblings. Adding to the iconic library of songs that honours the brother-sister bond, Aanand L Rai has brought back the nostalgia attached to golden Bollywood songs like Phoolon Ka Taaron Ka. A melodious composition by Himesh Reshammiya, the song has been sung by Nihal Tauro with the lyrics penned by lyricist Irshad Kamil.

Speaking about the song, director-producer Aanand L Rai said, “Raksha Bandhan is all about returning to your heart centre. The film celebrates a brother-sister bond like never before and Tere Saath Hoon Mein sets the narrative for the film. It made perfect sense for this song to be the first release from the music album. For me, the music of the film has always been its soul. I’ve always believed it should add to tone of the film and Himesh has done an outstanding job by capturing the emotions just right!”

Written by Himanshu Sharma and Kanika Dhillon, the Aanand L Rai directorial has been co-produced by Aanand L Rai, Alka Hiranandani and ZEE Studios. Presented by Colour Yellow, ZEE Studios and Cape of Good Films.

The recent trailer launch has only upped the ante on all the euphoria around the film and it has quickly picked pace as one of the most anticipated film of 2022. The film is slated to hit the theatres on 11th August 2022.
