Television actress, Rupali Ganguly proved that some bonds are forever when she tied rakhi on Bollywood actor, Akshay Kumar's wrist on the show, Ravivaar with Star Parivaar. Yes, it was one of the most memorable moments as Rupali recalled how she used to tie rakhi on Akshay's wrist for five consecutive years. The brother-sister duo cherished their time together almost three decades ago.
In the episode of Ravivaar with Star Parivaar, we saw Rupali rekindling her lost bond with Akshay as she had tied rakhi on his wrist. The emotional Rupali also promised that she would tie rakhi on his wrist till she is alive. With moist eyes, Rupali had said:
"Har saal jab tak zinda hu, har saal rakhi bandhungi"
After tying the rakhi, Akshay, as a custom, gifted a present to Rupali, and the doting sister revealed what was inside it to her millions of fans. Taking to her IG stories, Rupali shared a picture of opening the gift and inside it was a beautiful yellow-coloured saree. Later, Rupali posted photos on her IG handle while flaunting her pretty saree. Alongside it, she penned a thank you note for Akshay. She wrote:
"Some precious moments with my beautiful family on #rakshabandhan And I Absolutely Loveee this beautiful saree @akshaykumar. It’s my favorite color too. Thank you for being so thoughtful…. Touched and emotional. This shall be my prized possession… precious. Wish I had remembered to take a few pics atleast when we met again."
For those who don't know, Rupali Ganguly and Akshay Kumar's bond grew up when the actress' later father, Anil Ganguly, who was a renowned filmmaker, signed him for one of his films. Rupali's father enormously liked Akshay Kumar, and that is how she started tying rakhi on his wrist almost three decades ago.
Rupali had also revealed that her father had already predicted back in the day that Akshay was made for stardom, and eventually, he would become one of the best actors in the industry. The actress had also shared that back in those days when she used to go for a walk with her father, Akshay was already up and doing his workout.
Well, we love Akshay's gift for his rakhi sister, Rupali!
