Akshay Kumar plays the lead role in Gold - Reema Kagti’s film on India’s first gold medal in the Olympics.

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, who is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Padman, plans to launch the first trailer of his next ambitious project, Gold, on February 5. Akshay’s first collaboration with Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment, Gold is afictionalised account of Indian hockey men’s team winning a medal at London Olympics in 1948. What made the medal truly special was the fact it was the first won at the prestigious games by an independent India. Gold is slated to hit theatres on Independence Day, 2018.

The film is directed by Reema Kagti and also features Amit Sadh and Mouni Roy in key roles. Shooting for the film wrapped up in December last year.

Meanwhile, Ajay Devgn is also likely to unveil the first trailer of Raid on February 6. Devgn plays an income tax officer in the film set in Uttar Pradesh of the 1980s. Produced by Bhushan Kumar and Kumar Mangat, Raid has been scripted by Ritesh Shah (of Pink and Airlift fame).
