Raksha Bandhan is a special day for every brother-sister duo. It’s a day when brothers pamper their sisters with gifts.

Strangely, there also are men who fear this day.

They fear that a girl they have a crush on may tie them a rakhi and prefer staying within the confines of their house. Keeping this in mind, we asked some of our B-Town stars on their take on such instances.

Arjun Kapoor

"If you like a girl, and she is tying you a rakhi, you, obviously won’t allow it. Avoid being around that day. There’s no need to be a


(brother) when you don’t feel like being one."

Ayushmann Khurrana

"A girl who wants to tie you a


is definitely not interested in you. What’s the need to fear her and run away? Enjoy the bond."

Saqib Saleem
"When I was in school, I used to fear this day because I didn’t want the girl I had a crush on to tie me a rakhi. A close friend has been through such a situation, and we still laugh about it."
