Akshay Kumar seems to be on a signing spree these days. The actor had recently made an announcement on Twitter, about his new film Gold to be helmed by Reema Kagti.
Now here's some latest scoop on Akky's new movie. If reports are to be believed then the Rustom actor will be seen playing the role of hockey legend Balbir Singh.
A DNA report quoted a source saying, "Though the world is aware of Dhyan Chand, there is another hockey hero who has ironically not been talked about in the same breath. However, the fact is that Balbir Singh was the hero of the gold campaign that India enjoyed not just in 1948 but also 1952 and 1956 Olympics."
The movie set in 1948 revolves around the time when India won its first ever Olympic gold medal as a free nation. Gold is slated to hit the theatrical screens on 15th August, 2018.
Meanwhile Akshay has a string of releases coming up next which include Jolly LLB 2, 2.0, Crack and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
