In the teaser, which was released last week, Akshay impressed the audiences with his act as a Bengali hockey player in Gold.. The teaser of Gold, which was unveiled earlier this year, shows the struggle of a hockey player (played by Akshay Kumar) and how he wins the first Olympic medal for the country as a free nation in 1948.
In the film, Akshay co-stars with Mouni Roy, Amit Sadh and Kunal Kapoor. It is directed by Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd and Talaash fame director Reema Kagti. Gold hits screens on this Independence Day (August 15).
Gold will be Akshay Kumar's second release of 2018 after PadMan. Of Gold, co-producer Ritesh Sidhwani had earlier told news agency PTI, "It is not a biopic. It is a completely fictional story but it is set against a real backdrop between 1933-48 India about what the country was, the sports... About hockey. It is not based on any character."
