Akshay Kumar is on friggin’ fire at the Box Office! Two of his movies Padman and 2.0 haven’t even been released yet and we already have a teaser for his Independence Day blockbuster called ‘Gold’

Akshay Kumar Gold Movie
Akshay Kumar’s Gold.

Directed by Reema Kagti, Gold is a sports drama film starring Akshay Kumar and Mouni Roy in lead roles. Movie is set in 1946 in British India. Akshay Kumar is playing the character of a “crazy Bengali” who is passionate about Hockey and India. He’s on a quest to win gold medal for newly independent India at the Olympics. “Abhi tak India chup tha. Ab hum log bolega aur duniya sunega,” he says.

Watch the teaser trailer here.

Gold looks like a hybrid of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Chak De India. Even if it’s half as good as those movies, I’m sold. Movie is set to release on Independence Day.
