Excel Entertainment’s Gold has been unstoppable at the Box Office since its release on August 15. The makers decided to host a special screening of the film for cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and his family.
Sachin who was a part of Gold’s ‘Feeling of Gold’ video came to attend the screening with wife Anjali Tendulkar and daughter Sara Tendulkar accompanied by Ritesh Sidhwani.
Gold showcases the dream of Tapan Das played by Akshay Kumar, who wishes to win India’s first gold medal in hockey as an independent nation. He coaches the team for the 1948 Olympics in London, inspiring the athletes to make a mark against the British on their own turf. Subsequently, India won the gold medal on August 12, 1948.
The film has been shot across the UK and India, capturing the fascinating aspects of the pre-independent era.
‘Gold’ not only marks the first ever association between Akshay Kumar and Excel Entertainment led by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar but also is the debut of TV sensation Mouni Roy.
Starring Akshay Kumar, Mouni Roy, Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh, Vineet Singh and Sunny Kaushal, Gold provided a power-packed performance by the ensemble actors.
Gold is produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, helmed by Reema Kagti and is now in theatres.
