“Gold is about sports, not just hockey”, says superstar #AkshayKumar during his media interaction at the #NainoSeBaandhi song Launch.
Akshay Kumar created a revolution with Padman and Toilet Ek Prem Katha, and now gearing up with Gold, which is based on India’s first Olympic gold medal in hockey during 1936.
So when asked about Gold will revolutionize the outlook towards hockey in India, Akshay Kumar said, “My wish is that I hope that hockey gets promoted a lot more. Through this movie, we are making a small contribution. See rather than just hockey, I want to put emphasis on sports. To me this is a sports film, for me, this is not about hockey, it is about sports.”
Indian Hockey Legend Dhyan Chand also rose to fame during the same time, but Akshay Kumar admits that the film is an inspired tale, not based on any particular sports individual.
