Akshay Kumar's drama movie Raksha Bandhan was released on August 11 & has opened below expectations at box office.

Akshay Starrer did a total business of ₹8.2 crore on  its opening day.

This is a disappointing start for a crowd puller superstar like Akshay Kumar.

This is also Akshay's worst opening film of this year.

The movie might witness a drop of 35% in its collection & may earn around ₹5.6 crore  on Day 2.

Raksha Bandhan was made on an approximate budget of  ₹70 Crore.

If Raksha Bandhan does not perform well in upcoming days, 2022 would turn into a  disaster for Akshay.

Akshay has done three movies so far in 2022 including Raksha Bandhan, in which Bachchhan Pandey & Samrat Prithiraj were disasters for Akshay.

Akshay's Raksha Bandhan locked horns with Aamir's Laal Singh Chaddha on the national holiday of Raksha Bandhan festival.

Both the movie's failed to perform as per expectations but still they sparked some flare in Bollywood dry run.
