The ‘Bollywood Khiladi’ Akshay Kumar gains 5 kg for his upcoming movie: Raksha Bandhan

Akshay Kumar has gained 5 kg weight for Raksha Bandhan directed by Aanand L Rai’s

Akshay Kumar has always been an inspiration for many people when it comes to fitness and healthy living. The determination he has not only kept for his health but also for the roles he plays in various films.

He had to lose six kg to look leaner as a cop for Sooryavanshi. However, the actor is not at all complaining. “I quite enjoy the process of losing or gaining weight for a character because I am able to do it in a healthy way. I have gained 5 kg in a totally natural process. And it also allowed me the rare indulgence of eating meri maa ke haath ka halwa. What a blessing!” he gushes.


The actor earlier last month took to his Instagram and shared a picture of him with Aanand and Raksha Bandhan co-star Bhumi Pednekar. In the candid picture, all three of them can be sitting and laughing. He captioned the picture “When you are happy, it shows 😁 And indeed we are…to have @bhumipednekar onboard #RakshaBandhan 🙌🏻”. Bhumi and Akshay have previously worked together in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.

Akshay Kumar, who is currently shooting for Raksha Bandhan in Mumbai, will be seen sharing screen space with five fresh faces who play his sisters in the film. Apart from this project, the actor enrolled himself with the director Aanand L Rai for another project with a special role in Atrangi Re.
