Akshay Kumar bulks up for his Anand L Rai’s Raksha Bandhan

Gaining weight for Raksha Banddhan in salubrious way was a blessing for actor Akshay Kumar

There is no rebuffing the fact that Akshay Kumar has maintained resilient benchmarks of fitness throughout his career. The actor can give the new gen heroes a run for their money when he brandishes his fit physique.

Khiladi Kumar who always eats salubrious and linger fit, in recent times got a chance to let himself go and gorge to his heart’s content. Akshay who is playing a character from Delhi in Aanand L Rai’s Raksha Bandhan had to bulk up for the film. This game of losing and gaining weight doesn’t surprise the actor and he has no complaints.

“I quite enjoy the course of losing or gaining weight for a character because I am able to do it in a nutritious way. I have gained 5 kg in a totally natural process. And it also permitted me the rare indulgence of eating meri maa ke haath ka halwa. What a blessing!” Said the action star that is always ready for challenges at the movies and off camera too.

Over Tweeter, Akshay tweeted that Raksha Bandhan was the ‘speediest’ he has ever said yes to a film. “A story that touches your heart so deeply & so instantly, it’s the quickest I’ve signed a film in my career. Dedicating this film, #RakshaBandhan to my sister, Alka & to the most special bond in the world…that of a brother and sister. Thank you @aanandlrai, this one is very special,”

Akshay, who is at present shooting for Raksha Bandhan in Mumbai, will be seen sharing screen space with five fresh faces who play his sisters in the film. The film also stars Bhumi Pednekar.
