Today is the day when the nation celebrates the auspicious day of Rakshabandhan.

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar's younger sister, Alka Bhatia has shared one of the most important gift she has received from her brother, on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan.

Akshay was born as Rajiv Bhatia and hence his sister refers to him as Raju. Like all other Indian parents, Alka said, her parents too didn't want her to step out of the house without the company of her brother Raju.

In the video, Alka tells how Akshay would deny to protect her, much to her annoyance, and would always tell her to be her own protector and saviour.

She further says, "My father passed away 17 years ago, we all suddenly felt lonely". "I used to often get angry on Raju because he was older to me and had some responsibility". He would never go with me and always say, "Apna dhyaan khud rakhi". "However, his idea of leading life remains same - take care of your own self".

And later explaining her realisation, she says, "However, I realised the importance of his statement when my daughter went for higher studies to America". And that, she says, is the greatest gift his brother has given to her and her daughter till date, the strength to take care of their own safety. We were stressed about it. My daughter asked, "Will I be able to manage?', to which I automatically replied like Raju, 'Bas khudka dhyan rakhna" (Just take care of yourself).

But this is not the first time the brother-sister duo has taken to social media to share their special relationship with the world.

Akshay Kumar is going to be seen in the film "Toilet: Ek Prem Katha". The Sree Narayan Singh's directorial is set to hit the theatres on August, 11.
