Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar now has a 'rakhi' sister and it is 'Anupamaa' actress Rupali Ganguly. In the upcoming episode of 'Ravivaar with Star Parivaar,' Rupali will be seen tying a rakhi to Akshay and talking about her first meeting with him. The Star Parivaar families who are part of this show are 'Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai,' 'Anupamaa,' 'Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin,' 'Imlie,' among others. The upcoming episodes of the show will be graced by Akshay Kumar, who will be there to promote his recent project 'Raksha Bandhan'.
Star Plus recently shared a new promo of the show. As the video starts, we see Rupali Ganguly tying a Rakhi on Akshay's hand, and then we see Kishore Shahane dancing with Akshay, Rupali Ganguly. While both Akshay and Rupali celebrate rakhi, the latter fame calls him her 'rakhi brother'.
She said "Akshay and I go way back. He is my rakhi-brother. We lost touch for a while when he became such a big personality. It gets a bit awkward after a while." On the other hand, talking about her first meeting with the actor, Rupali revealed: "It was back in 1992 when I started tying 'Rakhi' to him, and in 2022, I got to see him again and tie another 'rakhi', all thanks to the show."
