I will never work with my brother again (laughs). Working with a sibling can get very complicated because you don’t realize where boundaries begin and end. After 20-25 days of shooting, you start getting on each other’s nerves a little bit. When you are family, you are living out each day at home and at work together. Even the smallest sigh or a raised eyebrow, and the other person knows just what’s going on.”        -Huma Qureshi


Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival that celebrates the love and duty between brothers and sisters; the festival is also popularly used to celebrate any brother-sister like loving protective relationship between men and women who are relatives or biologically unrelated. It is called Rakhi Purnima, or simply Rakhi, in many parts of India.  On Raksha Bandhan, sisters tie a rakhi (sacred thread) on her brother’s wrist. This symbolizes the sister’s love and prayers for her brother’s well-being, and the brother’s lifelong vow to protect her.The festival falls on the full moon day (Shravan Poornima) of the Shravan month of the Hindu lunisolar calendar.
