Raksha Bandhan 2019 is being celebrated on Thursday, August 15. This year, the celebrations are doubling up as the country is also celebrating its 73rd Independence Day on the same day. Raksha Bandhan, commonly known as the festival of Rakhi, is a beautiful way to celebrate the relationship of brother-sister in the Hindu community. The sister ties a thread on the wrist of her brother wishing him success and happiness while the brother vows to protect her. Gifts and sweets are exchanged between them and the day is treated as another opportunity to reunite families.

So, before the Raksha Bandhan celebrations kick-start on Thursday morning, here’s a great way to prepare for the entire festivity. Our Hindi film industry has got ways to celebrate every festival and our movies have so many popular songs that describe the innocent bond of brother-sister. Before you begin the festivities tomorrow, here’s a simple Rakhi-special playlist for you to enjoy with your siblings. Check this out:
