Special Raksha Bandhan video: Akshay’s greatest gift for sister Alka

Last year Akshay Kumar and sister Alka posted a hilarious video on Raska Bandhan but this year the charming sister of Akki shared a video in which she talked about the greatest gift of life that her brother gave her years ago.

In a video titled ‘Direct Dil Se’, Alka Bhatia talked about how her brother 'Raju' aka Akshay Kumar irritated her when they were young and this story from Alka’s mouth is sure to impress you. "Mummy-Daddy would insist that if I had to stay out late or attend a late night party then I'd have to ask Raju to accompany me. He would never go with me and always say, 'You have to take care of your own safety.' And I would be like, 'Why?'" Alka added that after their father passed away, quietly Akshay took over his responsibilities but his motto remained unchanged, "I realized the value of his words when I sent my daughter to study abroad. When she asked me if 'Everything will be okay,' I replied, like Raju, 'Everything will be fine, just take care of your own safety'."

"This has been the greatest gift my brother has given to me and my daughter - The strength to be self-sufficient. Thank you, Raju. I love you," she added. The video ended with the message: "This Raksha Bandhan, do not protect your sister. Empower her."

At the end Akshay jumped and cast a peck on Alka’s cheeks.

In 2012, Akshay Kumar's sister Alka got married to Hiranandani Builders' Surendra Hiranandani.
