Akshay has a lot of fond memories attached to Delhi. In August, during a promotional event for his film ‘Bellbottom’, Akshay recalled how he had once watched megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ (1977) in a movie hall by buying a ticket in black.
“I have a lot of memories attached to theatres in Delhi. I was born in Chandni Chowk, where several movie theatres are located, including Delite Cinema. I had watched several movies there. I remember watching ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ in the theatre by buying a ticket in black… it was raining heavily that day but I wanted to watch that film at any cost. Being a cinema lover, it was extremely important for me to watch that film. I failed to get a ticket to a theatre nearby my locality..so I had to go to Amba cinema where I watched ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ in black,” Akshay had said.
Coming back to ‘Raksha Bandhan’, the film, which is helmed by Aanand L Rai and also stars Bhumi Pednekar.
