Aanand L Rai’s ‘Raksha Bandhan’ is all set to release on the 11th August, the same day as the festival it was named after. The film stars Akshay Kumar as well as Bhumi Pednekar. But there are four more cast members that play a vital role in the story, the 4 sisters. The 4 actresses have stolen the cast’s heart and are all set to rule the hearts of the fans with their acting talent.We got a chance to talk to these lovely ladies and asked them to share what some of their lesser known talents and skills were. And here’s what they had to say:
Sadia Khateeb who debuted in the 2020 movie ‘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 of the ‘Cherry Bomb’ youtube channel fame plays one of the 4 sisters in the movie. 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, 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, 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.”
