A new official poster of the upcoming sports drama, Gold is out. The movie stars Akshay Kumar in lead role and so far we only knew of the movie through a teaser poster and a teaser trailer. But as the release date of the movie is approaching – August 15 – the promotional spree for the same will begin soon. Marking the first step Farhan Akhtar, producer of the movie, unleashed the first poster on the internet. Akshay, too, posted the first look on his social media page and captioned, “Desh banta hai jab sab deshvasiyon ki aankhon mein ek sapna hota hai”.
The poster features a patriotic Akshay Kumar holding the Indian flag close to his heart. The hockey team, on whom the story is based, can be seen on the poster as well. “The dream that united the nation”, reads the tagline of the film. To be honest, the poster doesn’t really impress. We have seen this imagery in the first teaser trailer of the movie. But we are eagerly waiting for the promotions to go on full throttle mode. We are sure the movie is going to be epic. With a premise like Gold, there is no way, movie buffs in India won’t flock to the theatres.

As you know Gold is based on the life of Balbir Singh, the man who led to India’s victory in hockey at the 1948 London Olympics. The story won’t just narrate what happened that night but will also take us closer to live of the players in the team. Though it has been made very clear by the makers that the movie will not be a biopic but a fictional retelling of the events. Mouni Roy, Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh, Sunny Kaushal star in pivotal roles in Gold. The movie is being directed by Reema Kagti, popular for Talaash and Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd. The film will have Mouni playing Akshay Kumar’s romantic interest in the film. But don’t be too excited to see this romantic pairing as Gold will, of course, have more sports than romance and the Naagin actress will be seen only in bits and pieces in the film.
