Akshay Kumar and Mouni Roy’s film Gold released on Independence Day 2018 and is performing well at the box office. While promoting their highly-anticipated film, Akshay and Mouni have proved they have an amazing chemistry both on screen and off and also revealed their thoughts on each other.

Akshay has kept fans in stitches throughout each interview and press appearance with Mouni, and made it clear that they are friends. Each has said kind things about the other, in his/her unique way. Case in point: When Akshay was asked about his rapport with his Gold co-stars in Delhi on Tuesday, he gave a sneak peek into the film’s shooting and said he always made time for some fun on the film sets.

“We are friends. We enjoy ourselves. I play a lot of games with them, and there has not been even one day on the sets that we haven’t played. Mouni wouldn’t play any games. She was a snob on the sets of the film,” Akshay said, tapping into his inner prankster. 

But is Mouni super snobby — or just misunderstood? Of course, Mouni had her own amusing response to Akshay’s playful musings. According to a Pinkvilla report, Mouni immediately jumped to her defence saying she used to play games like ludo and snakes and ladder. And after he’d garnered enough laughs, Akshay agreed with Mouni.

“So, I just enjoy with them. I don’t have any approach. It is not like - I have been in the industry for 28 years now and they are new, so I will act differently. My approach towards them is that they are really good friends, and I try to learn and gain from them as much as possible,” Akshay said.

 Watch the Gold review here:

Gold is inspired by India winning its first gold medal as a free country at the 1948 Olympics in Britain. In the movie, Akshay plays manager Tapan Das, who led India to its first Olympic gold as an independent nation.

Jyoti Sharma Bawa, in her Hindustan Times review of Gold, wrote, “Films become important for everything they say, and sometimes for what they don’t. Before we sit down and thrash out a Gold movie review, it is important to list everything that Akshay Kumar’s Independence Day offering is not. In these divisive times, when using the P-word can get you immediate claps and whistles, Gold shows them as our allies and encourages a healthy relationship. Its Independence Day rhetoric can be schmaltzy but is never cloying, asking us, as citizens, to dream and achieve them, over decades and generations, because only that can make a country great.”
