Akshay Kumar, who will be next seen in Excel Entertainment's Gold recently attended an event where he felicitated Indian contingents of Asian Games and said he would like to make a biopic on Hima Das. Akshay Kumar was one of the main guests at the event, where he wished them good luck for their forthcoming competition of Asian Games. The actor dedicated Gold's anthem song 'Ghar Layenge Gold' to the contingents to increase their confidence and to boost them up, he called them on the stage and sang the song along with them.

During the interaction round, when asked Akshay on whom would he like to make a biopic on, the actor said, "I would like to make a biopic on Hima Das. She's a young achiever, in a sport that India's not identified with on the international stage. She won gold in a track and field event, which is a huge achievement and should be highlighted through a movie. As Indians, we run and get on to a bus and train easily. So we have the potential to run. It's only a matter of time and encouragement before we can make a name for ourselves in track and field events."

The sports drama is not only one of the most awaited films of the year but has also been shot across the UK and India, capturing the fascinating aspects of the pre-independent era. Gold marks the Bollywood debut of actress Mouni Roy opposite Akshay Kumar.

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 promises power packed performances by an ensemble cast.

Gold is produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, helmed by Reema Kagti and is all set to release on the 15th August 2018.
