Akshay Kumar is all set to be seen in yet another patriotic film titled 'Gold' and this time the storyline will not deal with the navy or airlifting people to safety but instead it's a film based on the life of Balbir Singh, the Indian Hockey Team Captain who won three successive gold medals at the Olympics between 1948 and 1956.
Kunal Kapoor has now joined the hockey team in Gold and would star alongside Vicky Kaushal's younger brother Sunny Kaushal as a team member. Akshay will play the role of Balbir Singh. A source close to the movie was quoted as saying, "The actor will be training for five-six months before he begins shooting so that he can pull off the part of a professional hockey player. The film is expected to go on floors by July or August this year."
So the shoot of Gold will go on floors only by July-August and until then, all the stars are learning hockey so that they can pull off their roles with ease and look like real professional hockey players. Also, the film is set in the timeline between 1948 and 1956 and we're all excited to see how proudly our players won three successive gold medals at the Olympics.
Apart from Gold, Akshay Kumar is currently shooting for Padman and has completed shooting for his upcoming film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha where he'll be seen alongside Bhumi Pednekar. The film also stars Sana Khan in a prominent role as his secret girlfriend.
