Talking about people’s reaction to Raksha Bandhan, Aanand L Rai told News18, “You can’t ignore this. I know, we should be very progressive, we are in many ways. But there are many things that need to be taken care of and you can’t shut your eyes off. Not talking about it will not give you a solution. As a maker, I can’t write articles, I can’t make documentaries. My only way of expressing myself is through films. So, if you feel there is something regressive about this, that means there is time to correct our society.” Also Read – Independence Day 2022: Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar and more Bollywood actors who highlighted ‘Best of Bharat’ by playing lesser-known real-life heroes

He further added, “I can say we are the best in the world, but are we? We are trying our best. This thing of us (the actors and filmmaker) coming together and telling you a story like Raksha Bandhan where you feel there is something regressive, that means our intention was just to take the focus there. Let’s not ignore it, let’s deal with it. So next time when I make a film, you’ll not find that kind of regression.” Also Read – Raksha Bandhan box office collection day 3: Akshay Kumar starrer neither shows growth nor decline; stagnating in theatres
