After releasing some intriguing posters, the makers of Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Gold’ have finally dropped the official trailer of the upcoming film.
The trailer that opens in the pre-independence era, shows how it took 12 years to win a gold for India and the struggle of Akshay’s character along with others to win the medal for the country.
The film traces the “golden era” of Indian hockey through the journey of Tapan Das, a young assistant manager in 1936, who dreams of playing for an independent nation.

Talking about the film, producer Ritesh Sidhwani had earlier told PTI, “It is not a biopic. It is a completely fictional story but it is set against a real backdrop between 1933-48 India about what the country was, the sports… about hockey. It is not based on any character.”
Starring Akshay, Mouni Roy, Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh, Vineet Singh, Sunny Kaushal and Nikita Dutta, ‘Gold’, directed by Reema Kagti releases in theatres on August 15, 2018.
