During the trailer launch of Raksha Bandhan in Delhi, Akshay Kumar said, “I’ve grown up here in Chandni Chowk. Mera bachpan yaha guzra hai. I have watched a lot of films in the theatres here in black. Most of the theatres would have been shut down by now. So, while we were shooting for Raksha Bandhan, it felt like home. In fact, I don’t remember shooting for the film because we had loads of fun. We ate a lot, had a picnic. I relived my past while shooting here. All my on-screen sisters would also pamper me with good food every day. They would take turns to cook different dishes from their hometown. Pata hi nahi chala kab film ban gayi. When I saw the whole film few days back, I wondered when we even shot these scenes. I didn’t even remember crying so much in the film. Rakha Bandhan is an honest film.”
