The highly-anticipated theatrical trailer for Bollywood star Akshay Kumar's upcoming patriotic sports drama 'Gold' is out this morning. The inspirational trailer showcases the burning dream of Tapan Das (Akshay Kumar), a young Assistant Manager of British India's hockey team. Tapan's dream is to see Independent India winning the Hockey Gold medal and unfurl the Indian tricolor at London Olympics in 1948.
Gold's trailer starts off with Tapan Das dejected with the British India flag being hoisted after winning the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics in 1936. Tapan then sets out on recruiting talented and patriotic hockey players from the nook and corner of the country, eventually forming a team to win the Olympic Gold and sing the National Anthem at the podium.
Tapan, however, has several challenges like the Indian partition and other adversities at Hockey India association and back home, from his wife who doesn't approve of his impractical ambition.
Apart from Akshay, Gold also features a host of talented actors like Kunal Kapoor, Vineet Singh, Mouni Roy, Amit Sadh and Sham Kaushal etc. Directed by Reema Kagti of Aamir Khan's Talaash fame, Gold is produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. Gold is releasing on August 15 to cash in on the Independence Day fervor.
