AANAND L RAI TALKS ABOUT RAKSHA BANDHAN CLASHING WITH LAAL SINGH CHADDHA
In a recent media interaction, Akshay Kumar shared his thoughts about his film clashing at the box office with Laal Singh Chaddha. He said he would want both films to have a good run in theatres.
Speaking to IndiaToday.in, director Aanand L Rai said, “It’s a very good weekend. I was just telling somebody that it’s not a weekend. It’s a vacation as there are almost 5-7 days of holidays. It’s a very long weekend and both films will definitely do well. It’s the right space for two films to come. If not for us, somebody else would have released their film on that day. We were only making sure three films didn’t come on the same day. If that was the case, we would have avoided that. But, two films can definitely come that weekend.”
Talking about the Akshay Kumar-starrer, he added, “Raksha Bandhan is a film of heartland and with this, I have gone back to my roots.”
