Raksha Sutra

Raksha sutra is a short history drama film directed by Dushyant Kapoor and written by Prashant Raj. This short film was released worldwide on Raksha Bandhan in 2020. It shows why we celebrate Raksha Bandhan and uses two historic moments to demonstrate the festival's significance.


"Where does the origin of 'Rakhi' lie?" has ever been a mystery. So this story depicts a fictional scene of Rani Karnavati , The queen of Mewar in 1534 A.D where she sends a Rakhi and writes a letter to Mughal Emperor Humayun asking for her help describing an incident reconnecting us to the Mythological Era Dwapura Yuga where Lord Krishna kills his cousin Shishupal because of his evils and promises Draupadi to help her in future out of her generous gesture of tieing a piece of cloth on Krishna's bleeding finger .
