Talking about his role in 'Raksha Bandhan', Abhilash told mid-day.com, "I have a very small screen time but it’s an impactful part. The great thing is that I got to be a part of Aanand L Rai’s world and that is something every actor in the country would want. I remember the writer of the film Himanshu Bhai had called me and said ‘Ek part hai, tu interested hai? (there’s one part in the film and would you be interested?. I was like if you guys are making it then there’s no way to say a no. And that’s how I got the part. Most of my scenes are with Bhumi Pednekar and Akshay Kumar sir and it was amazing working with the two of them."


Further talking about sharing the screen with Akshay Kumar for the first time, he said, "If I were to describe Akshay sir in two words, it would be welcoming and a sport. And that’s how he was on the set. He was amazing and he brings in so much energy on the set. He shares anecdotes and jokes around and he is fun to be with. I think not even a single day he has made us feel that we are working with Akshay Kumar. It was always like we are working with just another co-actor. He is very disciplined and that’s something to learn from him."
