Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, who is gearing up for his upcoming release PadMan, will be dropping the trailer of his next film Gold on February 5. The film also features TV hottie Mouni Roy. With Gold, Mouni will be making her Bollywood debut. Directed by Reema Kagti, Gold is bankrolled by Excel Entertainment led by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar. In the film, Akshay Kumar will be playing the role of Balbir Singh, who brought India’s first ever gold medal in 1948 London Olympics.
Akshay Kumar’s Gold is expected to release on Independence Day 2018. The shooting for the film was wrapped up in December last year. Apart from Akshay, Gold features Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh and Sunny Kaushal in important roles. A picture from the sets of Gold leaked online last year which gave us an insight of Akshay Kumar’s guise for the film. He was wearing black and white attire, standing in the middle of stadium surrounded by security and crew members of the film. The first leg of the shooting was shot in London in July last year, finally wrapping the final schedule in Patiala.
On the work front, Akshay Kumar will be next seen in PadMan, which is based on menstrual hygiene. It is scheduled to release on February 9 with Sidharth Malhotra’s Aiyaary. This year, Akshay Kumar will be having three releases including PadMan, 2.0 and Gold.
