Earlier, reports suggested that Swara Bhasker had been cast opposite Akshay Kumar in the film. However, the actress refused the reports on Twitter and wrote: "That's right! While I'm a fan of Akshay sir and love Reema Kagti's films, but reports that I'm playing his wife in the film Gold not true." She also added: "Nope. Not true. But he was my first Bollywood crush and his was the only poster in my room through my teen years."

Gold is directed by Reema Kagti and also features Amit Sadh, Kunal Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar and Mouni Roy in the lead roles. Shooting for the film wrapped up in December last year.
Gold is Mouni Roy's Bollywood debut while Akshay Kumar is all set for his upcoming film PadMan, produced by wife Twinkle Khanna. 'PadMan Challenge' initiated by the makers of the film is now viral and Bollywood celebrities are completing the task by posing with a sanitary pad in their hands. The film will hit the screens on February 9. Akshay also has 2018's much-awaited robotic drama 2.0 in the pipeline, co-starring superstar Rajinikanth.
