The movie is directed by Anand L Rai of Atrangi Re fame and stars Sahejmeen Kaur, Deepika Khanna, Sadia Khateeb and Smrithi Srikanth as Akshay’s four sisters in the film.
About the film, Akshay had told PTI: “Like, I did Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Padman. Similarly, in this film, we are not only talking about dowry, but also providing a solution for the country and the world. At every movie I want to deconstruct myself I want to break my image and then do something else My criteria has always been to challenge myself When I joined the industry I was just doing action It took me a long time to get out to break it.”
The film will hit theaters on August 11, coinciding with the Raksha Bandhan festival. It is Akshay’s third release in the year 2022 after Bachchhan Paandey and Samrat Prithvirajn and will clash in theaters with Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha.
