The biopic is based on the life of hockey player Balbir Singh (played by Akshay Kumar) who was a member of the team that won the first Olympic medal for India as an independent nation in 1948.
The Big Independence Day Release
Akshay Kumar‘s first sports based movie is going to be the Independence Day release of 2018. With Kumar’s soaring success rate and a strong story line at the backing, Gold is surely going to open with packed theaters. This inspiring story carries a blend of patriotism which makes it a perfect 15 August release.
Actor Mouni Roy’s Big Bollywood Debut
Gold will mark the debut of television actor Mouni Roy who became popular with TV serials like Devon Ka Dev Mahadev and Naaginn.
