Aanand L Rai’s Raksha Bandhan is set to release on August 11, the same day as the eponymous festival.

The film stars Akshay Kumar with Bhumi Pednekar. But there are four other cast members that play a vital role in the story, the four sisters. They are played actors by Sadia Khateeb, Smrithi Srikanth, Deepika Khanna and Sahejmeen Kaur respectively.

To get to know them better, the four actors shared what some of their lesser-known talents and skills are.

Sadia Khateeb

Sadia Khateeb who debuted in the 2020 film Shikara says “People don’t know a lot about me that includes that I can sing, I can dance, I can paint, I am a fairly good cook and I can ride horses."

Smrithi Srikanth

Smrithi Srikanth of the Cherry Bomb YouTube channel fame plays one of the four sisters in the film. She says, “I am a freestyle dancer. I feel good whenever I dance. Apart from that I am a decent singer, not the professional one but, okayish. And I have recently started doing gymnastics so I can do a few basic elements like back walkover and a kip-up."

Deepika Khanna

Deepika Khanna, who has acted in several web series and TV shows since her debut in 2018, says “I love to paint. Not professionally, but I love painting. It’s my go-to thing to do when I want to relax or destress.”

Sahejmeen Kaur

Sahejmeen Kaur, who will debut with Raksha Bandhan, says, “You play me any song and I can do its hook step. I can also guess the song by its tune in the first 30 seconds and I can sing that well. And the most secretive hidden talent of mine is I can mimic and write poems as well.”

Raksha Bandhan is written by Himanshu Sharma and Kanika Dhillon. The film's music is composed by Himesh Reshammiya with lyrics by Irshad Kamil.
