The trailer of Akshay Kumar-starrer Gold is out, and it is as gripping as we had expected. The film revolves around the life of Tapan Das played by Akshay Kumar. Tapan is as much in love with the sport as he is in with the nation. He dreams to win India its first Gold medal, post the country's independence from the British reign. As evident from the trailer, Akshay has another patriotism-driven hit to his filmography. The film recreates India's historic win for hockey at the 1948 Olympics.
Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment, Gold has been written and directed by Reema Kagti. It marks the Bollywood debut of popular TV actress Mouni Roy, and also features Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh and Vineet Kumar Singh in key roles.
