The teaser of the upcoming sport’s drama, “Gold” has been released and fans are already going gaga. The flick will hit the screens on August 15, 2018, and a more appropriate moment cannot be asked for as this patriotic flick ties in with Independence Day (India).

The “Gold” movie trailer has Akshay Kumar as the coach of Independent India’s Hockey team dreaming and achieving, the first hockey gold of Independent India. The Film has an exciting cast of Kunal Kapoor, Vineet Kumar Singh, Amit Sadh and Bollywood debutante Mouni Roy.

“Gold” was long speculated to be a biopic of former hockey legend Balbir Singh who is credited for leading the independent nation to its first Olympic Gold triumph in 1948.

However, according to the Times of India, “Gold” is a fictional tale based on the backdrop of that victory.

According to the director, Reema Kagti, the flick chronicles the events of 12 years in Indian history which is one of the most crucial and tumultuous histories of its existence. This was confirmed to the Hindustan Times by Co-Producer Ritesh Sidhwani that the story is set against a backdrop of events between 1933 and 1948.

The rushes of the flick start with the ominous title “Gold, British India” leaving nothing to doubt that it is going to be an all-out patriotic flick.
