Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar, who is on a roll these days with his choice of films, will begin shooting for one of his upcoming films ‘Gold’ – which releases in theatres during the Independence Day weekend next year.
The film is based on the life of Olympian Balbir Singh, the first person to win gold medal for independent India in 1948.
There are reports that Akshay and his wife Twinkle are currently in Bradford (England).
Reema Kagti, who directed Aamir Khan in ‘Talaash’, will be directing ‘Gold’. Television actress Mouni Roy will play the female lead.
‘Gold’ is announced for theatres release on August 15 next year. It’ll be Akshay’s fourth consecutive ‘Independence Day’ release after Brothers (2015), Rustom (2016) and Toilet Ek Prem Katha (2017).
